Learn About Painless Root Canal

Posted on: May 5, 2016


At Bridlewood Dental, Rodger Song, DDS offers painless root canals that can be used to save your damaged or infected tooth. If you live in the 75028 area, we encourage you to call (972) 957-3707 and schedule an appointment at your first sign of dental discomfort. This will allow us to examine your tooth and determine what is causing your discomfort. If it turns out that your dental pulp, or the center of your tooth, is infected, we will recommend having a root canal procedure in order to remove the infected area. As a general dentist, we can perform it quickly and in a way that is as comfortable as possible. With patient comfort as our top priority, you can be confident in the procedure you are receiving from our office.

A General Dentist Can Save Your Tooth With a Root Canal

A root canal is often necessary because the interior of the tooth has become infected. This is different than standard dental decay, which tends to only target the outside. However, interior infections are significantly more painful than tooth decay, and that is why the root canal procedure tends to have a bad reputation. However, it is not the procedure that actually hurts but the infection, creating the need for the procedure. The good news is that as a Flower Mound, TX dentist, we can perform a root canal procedure to save your tooth and prevent the need for it to be extracted. This will prevent you from feeling unnecessary discomfort later on. When we perform the actual procedure, we will numb the area we're working on and provide you with basic sedation so you can relax and feel comfortable during the entire process. There is no surgery involved, and you will be able to recover quickly from the procedure itself.

Signs You Need a Root Canal From a General Dentist

It is important to look for signs that you may need a root canal. These include a tooth that has become gray or is slowly getting darker, a major toothache that does not go away after brushing and flossing your teeth, significant tooth sensitivity, or swelling. If you notice any of these signs, we encourage you to call (972) 957-3707 and schedule an appointment with our Flower Mound general dentist office. By treating you right away, we can help prevent you from experiencing any unnecessary discomfort and ensure that you can get on your way feeling better and healthy as soon as possible.

Patient Comfort Is Our Top Priority

As a general dentist, patient comfort is one of our top priorities. Our goal is to ensure that all our patients have a healthy smile for a lifetime. By removing any areas of your teeth that are infected, we can help you maintain your teeth for as long as possible, so you can confidently speak, eat, and smile without worrying about the negative effects of lost teeth. This is the true benefit of root canal therapy. It allows us to keep your natural teeth in place even after you have experienced infections. The key is to visit our office as soon as possible so we can take the steps necessary to return your mouth to good oral health. To get started, call (972) 957-3707 and schedule an appointment with our dental office.
