Root Canals Hurst, TX

Many people approach a root canal treatment with dread – yet they really shouldn’t. Dossett Dental patients find that root canals in Hurst can be comfortable because our team uses local anesthesia beforehand and offers a choice of three kinds of sedation. You won’t feel a thing during your procedure.

Our root canal therapy will:

  • Relieve the pain of an infected tooth
  • Save a tooth that would otherwise be lost to infection
  • Restore a tooth after a previous root canal treatment failed
  • Protect your tooth from further damage when we restore it with a dental crown
  • Eliminate the need for an extraction and tooth replacement

If your tooth hurts and you suspect you may need a root canal procedure, call us ASAP at 817-270-9217. When possible, we offer same-day care for dental emergencies.

Stay Comfortable With Sedation During Your Procedure

Infection happens when bacteria gets inside the pulp of your tooth (a collection of tissues, blood vessels, and nerves), typically through an untreated cavity or an injury like a cracked tooth. This results in pain and can lead to serious health issues if the infection spreads. Your solutions are either a tooth extraction or a root canal procedure.

During root canal treatment, your dentist:

  • Cleans out the diseased pulp, removing it from the “canals” in your tooth’s interior
  • Replaces the pulp with a material called gutta-percha
  • Caps your tooth with a crown to seal it shut

We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia prior to your procedure. If you’re nervous or worried about discomfort, you can also receive one of our three forms of dental sedation: laughing gas, an oral sedative, or IV sedation. We’ll help you select the method that will work best for your situation.

Recover More Quickly With A Root Canal

There are many advantages to choosing a root canal instead of an extraction:

  • You’ll enjoy a quicker and more comfortable recovery, with no bleeding.
  • Your other teeth won’t shift out of place because of the gap in your mouth, which can cause dental problems.
  • Your jaw won’t shrink from lost bone mass.
  • You won’t need to worry about getting a tooth replacement.

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

If the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected, you’ll need to have a root canal or remove the tooth. Otherwise, the infection can worsen and spread to your jaw and even elsewhere in your body, causing potentially serious health issues. You’ll recover more easily from a root canal than an extraction, and it keeps your tooth structure in place.

Are root canals painful?

While they have that reputation, most patients find a root canal no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling. The procedure eliminates pain, it doesn’t cause it! We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia. You may find it easier to relax if you also receive one of our three forms of safe dental sedation.

Where can I get a root canal?

You can see our dentists for any of your restorative needs, including root canal therapy. Many patients experience less anxiety having a root canal – or any other procedure – performed by a dentist they know in familiar surroundings rather than visiting an outside doctor. If you have a painful toothache, don’t put off calling our office!
