Root Canals in Round Rock, TX
It’s no secret that the thought of having root canal therapy causes significant anxiety for many people. This reaction may be the result of a past negative experience, a lack of understanding about the procedure, or both. But it's not necessary to feel overwhelmed about the procedure – at our Round Rock dental office, root canals are efficient, comfortable, and stress-free.
Your Comfort Is Important to Us
If you’re facing root canal therapy, you can be confident knowing that Dr. Zavala and Dr. Lewcock have the necessary skill and training needed to perform efficient, comfortable root canal treatment. Your well-being is our top priority, and our professional team will do everything necessary to provide support and encouragement throughout the procedure.
It is important for you to feel comfortable with the idea of root canal treatment because we need to remove any infection to stop pain and save the affected tooth. A local anesthetic will numb your mouth so you don’t feel any discomfort, but we can also prescribe a calming medication and other sedation options if you’re feeling anxious about treatment.
The Importance of Root Canal Treatment
The root canal is a space located deep inside your tooth, and it contains dental material like pulp, nerves, and tissue. If you have a cavity and don’t get treatment, decay can penetrate the root canal, causing severe pain.
At this point, a root canal is our only option for eliminating any infection and saving your tooth. Once we clear away the infection, we seal and fill the tooth. Depending on the extent of your root canal infection, it may be necessary to place a dental crown to further strengthen and protect the tooth.
