Root Canal Treatment in Irving, Texas

The soft material inside your teeth is known as the pulp, and it is protected by the hard enamel on the outside. When an infection reaches the pulp, it is a very serious issue for the overall health of the tooth. That is where root canal treatment comes in.

Root canal treatment, which is also referred to as endodontic therapy, involves removing any damaged pulp material that is present inside the tooth so that the structure can achieve a full recovery. Root canal treatment is relatively common with millions of people undergoing the procedure every year.

Some signs that root canal treatment may be needed include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Abscesses on the gums

The first step when providing root canal treatment is to take digital X-rays of the injured tooth. Before starting the procedure, we will provide appropriate sedation for the patient. This will help ensure comfort while dental work is being completed. We will also place a dental dam around the tooth. This is a rubber sheet that keeps the tooth dry and prevents the infection from spreading during the procedure.

Root canal treatment starts by using dental equipment to access the inner portion of the tooth from the top. We then proceed to clean out any infected material and decay that is found. An antimicrobial liquid is then used to flush out the tooth’s root canals. Any harmful materials down to the root will be eliminated, and the entire structure will be cleaned out. Medicated dental fillings will then be used to provide structure and strength for the tooth. To finish, a dental crown will be applied. This will protect the treated tooth from future breakages and fractures.

Our Happy Patients

"I recommend this office to anyone who wants a dentist that is HONEST, professional, and experienced. I saw another dentist previously, who was quoting me much more work than necessary, and over 10x the price out of pocket after insurance. I had a difficult root canal that required more time than expected. The office got me in quickly, and has extended hours."

Marie B.

"First time here. Staff was very friendly, informative and really works with you. They're down to earth people that care about helping you. They're prices are affordable. I came here after going to a very ritzy dentist that only saw me as a payment and not a customer. Here they really were interested in helping me with my dental concerns. And I really appreciated that. I'm a customer for life and my family is too. Everyone deserves a dentist like this."

"I love Dr Davis and his staff! Worked me in on Saturday to evaluate my issue and put me on the path to healing. It takes me over an hour to get to his office but to be honest I would drive any distance to have him for my dentist! Always leave his office with a smile! 😀"
