Dental Root Canal Procedure

If you notice any problem in your teeth that will require root canal therapy, then check on us at URBN Dental. It is our aim to help save your teeth and make certain that you can keep them and use them well throughout your life course. How though can you tell if you really need one? Let’s consider some questions that may likely be crossing your mind.

Dental Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches occur for a number of reasons. If you have a toothache, consult a reputable dentist so that they can run a series of tests and examinations to determine the source of your toothache.

In some cases, the recommended treatment for a toothache may be as simple as a filling. In other cases however, you may need an emergency root canal.

This doesn’t mean that you have to search for an emergency root canal at once. However, you should consult your dentist immediately because your toothache requires immediate attention.

At URBN Dental, we carefully examine your teeth and oral condition with advanced x-rays to diagnose the root cause of your toothache. Depending on your condition, our dentist may or may not recommend an emergency root canal. We always strive to protect your teeth with minimally-invasive and painless procedures.

Your comfort is our top priority. To that end, we ensure that all of our treatments are painless and we give you a thorough overview of the procedure prior to the treatment to keep you in the loop.

Signs You Need a Root Canal Dentist

Only a board-certified dentist can decide if you require an emergency root canal treatment or another procedure. However, a few symptoms and warning signs may indicate an imminent emergency root canal.

Do you have constant toothaches, especially while chewing or eating? Is the toothache worse at the end of the day? Do you have swollen or sensitive gums? Are your teeth extremely sensitive and do they sting upon contact with hot or cold dishes? Do you have trouble sleeping because of an incessant toothache?

If you can identify with any of the aforementioned signs, an emergency root canal may be necessary. Persistent toothaches (especially at night) and swollen/sensitive gums are the initial signs of an imminent root canal.

However, if left untreated, the signs can get progressively worse. Eventually, your teeth may fracture easily, your gums may bleed, and your teeth enamel may wear off.

The end goal for any root canal dentist is to ensure you keep your teeth, which is primarily where an emergency root canal comes in. The procedure aims to prolong your teeth’s life and prevent complete decay.

Do I Need a Root Canal Treatment Near Me?

At URBN Dental, our highly-qualified root canal dentist can study your teeth to determine if you need a root canal treatment. You only need to identify the aforementioned signs and schedule an appointment. Your root canal dentist will diagnose the problem and determine which treatment you require.

The Science Behind Root Canal Therapy

The process and principles behind root canal therapy are quite simple. To put it simply, root canal is necessary when your teeth are infected.

Your teeth may get infected for a number of reasons. It can be something simple — like food particles stuck between your teeth for long stretches of time — or it can be something more complex like leaky fillings from a previous botched treatment. That’s why the quality of your dental care is so important. If you visit an inferior dental clinic, you may just pay for it down the line.

Root canal aims to remove all foreign particles and infections from inside the tooth and replace them with an unreactive, inert material. The procedure concludes after capping or sealing the affected tooth with a dental crown.

If not treated in a timely manner, the infection may eat up your tooth from the inside, rendering it useless. In such a scenario, the dentist will have no option but to perform a tooth extraction procedure. If you continue avoiding treatment, the infection may even spread to the surrounding teeth.

As such, it’s in your best interest to seek treatment and schedule an appointment with an emergency root canal dentist as soon as you identify the first signs and symptoms of tooth decay.

ARE YOU READY TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH?

What to do About my Situation?

Can you identify any of the symptoms mentioned above? Are these symptoms persistent? If so, you must visit an emergency root canal dentist immediately. It’s completely possible that the situation isn’t serious and that you don’t need a root canal.

Of course, it’s better to have an expert opinion rather than to gamble with your oral health. At URBN Dental, you can set up a same-day appointment with the best dentist in Houston. In case there’s a dental emergency — for instance, if your gums suddenly start bleeding — you can also locate one of our URBN Dental clinics and walk in without an appointment for immediate emergency treatment.

URBN Dental is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art facilities that include advanced x-rays and other evaluation devices to accurately diagnose your problem. Following the evaluation, the dentist discusses your treatment options and explains everything in detail so you know exactly what the procedure includes. During the treatment, the dentist uses a numbing gel or anesthetic so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort.

As we’ve mentioned previously, the infection spreads to other teeth and potentially results in loss of teeth if you ignore your tooth decay. So don’t wait around for the symptoms to get worse — seek treatment as soon as possible.

When is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

At URBN Dental, extraction is always a last resort option. Our priority is to save your tooth with as little discomfort as possible. However, tooth extraction may be necessary if there’s a risk of the infection spreading to the neighboring teeth or if your infected tooth is beyond saving.

In these situations, our dentists perform a tooth extraction.

Following the extraction, you may also opt to get fitted for tooth implants. In that case, we can mold a natural-seeming tooth to replace the lost tooth.

Very friendly staff who put up with my inane sense of humor. The entire team team spoke with me 1:1, including: Dental assistants, hygienist, dentist, and insurance admin (explained everything to me in detail including how my insurance works). They explained my x-rays to me, the effects of flossing correctly / incorrectly. I feel like they gave me the education I didn't get as a child on how to care for my mouth, and why it's important. I was doing good stuff for my oral health-- just not correctly or with a positive attitude. GREAT aftercare package.

I am usually scared of going to the dentist for my annual cleaning but I was completely blown away by the amazing customer service from the staff. Julia was extremely helpful and explained my dental coverage and out of pocket costs. Angela did an exceptional job explaining to me about the importance of dental hygiene and actually taught me how to floss properly. The office was extremely clean and upscale. Dr. Bridget was very sweet and great bedside manners. She explained everything about the treatment plan in a very thorough and concise manner. I was extremely impressed by everyone on the office and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment.

From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now, have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class.

Great place for all your dental needs. Very inviting and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I've been looking for a good dentist for awhile while neglecting my oral health, but now I think I've found my place. 10/10 would come back for a follow-up appointment.

Very friendly staff. The hygienist's were so knowledgeable and really took the time to teach you about your teeth, they gave my husband and I "homework" to improve our oral health. Love it! Angela was great, great sense of humor (made me laugh a lot) and very professional. Awesome job Nicole, very friendly and took the time to answer all the questions we had (love she was recommending eateries for hubby to take me :). Julia was great at the front counter very lively and knowledgeable as well. They all really took the time and customized everything for us. Able to get free electric toothbrushes but didn't have any in stock.

Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I've had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white. They were very knowledgeable in regards to my insurance and I've had no issues. The service there is impeccable!

Love the location, the dentist AND the staff. Everyone there is awesome. It's rare that I leave a dentist office feeling just as good as when I arrive. I was sad I didn't get to see Snickers, but all in all I had a great experience my first time here. Glad to finally have a new "home" dentist since moving to Texas.

Beautiful location and office. Very friendly and welcoming staff! I had a great time conversing with them about movies and music. Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very knowledgeable and stressed the importance of making sure the patient knew what their game plan was. The office is very high tech as well so it was super cool to know that I was getting the latest tech being use on me.

The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. I love how they not only take X-rays, but also photos of all your teeth and put them on the big screen. They spent as much time as I needed to go over each area and explain specifics of each tooth. I definitely have a greater understanding of what is going on in there and what I need to do. I also love their space, it has a calming vibe with all kinds of artwork on display. You almost feel like you’re not at the dentist! Thank you all so much, I look forward to seeing you all again! (Said no one to their dentist 😉 )
