Root Canal in Houston & Katy, TX
At Chloe Dental In Houston, our dentists perform root canal treatments routinely. When the pulp or soft tissue inside your tooth becomes inflamed or diseased, Dr. Nguyen/ Dr. Ho can save your tooth by doing a root canal.
Inflammation and/or infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep cavities, cracks or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of inflammation/infection can be identified as visible injury of the tooth, swelling in the gums, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
During a root canal procedure, Dr. Nguyen/ Dr. Ho remove the infected pulp and clean and seal the pulp canal within the tooth’s root. With modern techniques and anesthetics, our patients in Houston report that they are comfortable during the procedure. Most root canal treatments are performed in a single visit but in certain cases, health issues, disease states or complicated anatomy necessitate two visit therapy. Afterward, you can drive home and return to your normal routine.
It is recommended to have a crown placed over the root canal-treated tooth to strengthen it. With CAD/CAM Cerec technology at Chloe Dental in Houston, we are able to deliver your aesthetic porcelain crown the same day of your root canal treatment. We observe a ninety percent success rate of the root canals performed at our office.
If you are having dental pain and think that you might need root canal treatment or have being advised to have root canal treatment, please contact our offices.
