The goal of root canal therapy is to save your tooth when it has become infected or the pulp has been damaged due to a traumatic injury. Here at the dental practice of Edwin Coligado DDS, you can be assured of a comfortable experience. Most of our patients report to us that they had very little pain or none at all during the treatment. And if you’re still nervous about it, you can take advantage of sedation to stay 100% relaxed and at ease.
Our Humble root canal is performed with expertise and experience using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. The success rate is very high, typically over 90%. And that’s good to know because without the procedure, you would lose the tooth, leaving you with a gap in your smile, possible shifting of your other teeth, and the effort and expense of replacing the tooth. The process of our Humble root canal begins with the drilling of the tooth from the top. About half the tooth is removed so that our dentist can have access to the base of the tooth. That’s where the pulp and nerve lie. They will be removed, after which the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. The entire treatment may take more than one session, and if so then a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth between visits. Some time is taken for the tooth to heal fully, after which you will be fitted for a permanent crown to restore the tooth to its full size, appearance, and function. Your tooth should be just as strong and viable as any of your other tooth.
When you need our Humble root canal, or you think you might due to tooth pain, sensitivity, swelling, or other symptoms, then call us right away. We will have you seen at the earliest possible convenience.
