ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root Canal Treatment
A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems, including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem. However, a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess. Dentists treat all these problems either by extracting a tooth or by a root canal treatment.
With Dynamic Dental Solutions, it is possible to have a root canal treatment at Baytown with a high rate of success. The dentists remove the diseased tissue and stop the infection from spreading. This ultimately helps in restoring the tooth. Before the procedure of rootwork was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

The procedure of a Root Canal Treatment
Most patients, after a root canal, experience little or no discomfort or pain. They enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as a healthy tooth. However, in some instances, the root canal hurts years later, but this is not common.

- A root canal therapy would cause numbness in your mouth. Therefore, eating after a root canal can be a problem for a few days. Right after the treatment, a patient should wait for the numbness to get over before starting to eat, so that tongue or cheeks are not hurt while eating.
- Proper brushing and flossing are essential, along with regular checkups. If you experience any pain or swelling, you should immediately report it to your dentist.
