Root Canal

cedar park tx root canal mosaic dentistry

Inside each tooth the pulp runs like a thread down through the root, providing nutrients and nerves to the tooth. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don’t remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. Years ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. Today, with root canal therapy, there’s a good chance the tooth can be saved.

When you come to us with a sensitive tooth or even a full-blown toothache, the first step is diagnosis. Our doctors want to be certain about a diagnosis before embarking on treatment.

Often if root canal therapy is needed we do it here at Mosaic Dentistry. As General Dentists, we also know when to refer a root canal out to an endodontist, and we work closely with several trusted colleagues who are specialists in root canal therapy.

Whether your root canal is done here or at a specialist’s office, the pulp is removed and the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then the tooth usually needs a buildup and crown to strengthen and restore it. Once that’s done, your tooth looks and feels as good as new. Don’t hesitate to call us if you think you may need a root canal. The most painful thing about a root canal is the toothache you have if you postpone dealing with it.

Extractions

We perform extractions for several different reasons. Sometimes a tooth cannot be restored due to infection, decay or severe breakage. Sometimes in cooperation with a patient’s orthodontist we remove selected teeth as part of an orthodontic treatment plan. Digital x-rays help us determine which extractions are suitable for a general dentist and which should be referred to a specialist.

The doctors understand that taking out a tooth or several teeth is a big decision for patients. Dr. A and Dr. Conley and their assistants take special care to proceed slowly, to respond to your questions and feedback, and to explain everything as they go along. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how well the procedure goes.
