Root Canal Therapy in Richardson,TX
Revitalize Your Oral Health with Help from CityLine Dental Center
When you’re suffering from a tooth that’s exceptionally damaged or decayed, it can feel like extraction may be your whole option. Here in Richardson, TX, Dr. Stampe and her staff are happy to let you know that this might not necessarily be the case! Root canal therapy is a highly effective and successful restorative treatment that can restore the health of diseased teeth and return them to full form and functionality.
Common symptoms that suggest you might be in need of root canal therapy include:
- Severe dental pain that occurs when you chew or apply pressure to a specific tooth
- Red, swollen, or otherwise irritated gums
- Excessive sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Discoloration (usually darkening) of a tooth
- A sore in the mouth
Of course, it’s also important to remember that in some cases, your symptoms may be mild or even invisible to an untrained eye. That’s why it’s important to attend regular check-ups with Dr. Stampe. If we do determine that you need root canal therapy, we’ll schedule your treatment for as soon as possible. Dr. Stampe will create a hole in the affected tooth so that she can access the inner chamber and thoroughly clean out the diseased bacteria and pulp. Once that’s done, we’ll seal off the area so as to prevent further infection and then cap off the area with a brand-new customized crown.
