Root Canal Therapy in Plano, TX
A tooth infection can be a scary thing. Infections that are left untreated can cause abscesses and eventually require the extraction of a tooth. But a root canal can prevent the need for extraction by treating the infection and restoring the strength of your tooth. Dr. Yeary provides root canals in Plano, TX to get patients out of pain and to enjoy renewed oral health.
Plano, TX Root Canal Treatment
Many patients don’t understand how vital root canals are for saving infected or severely damaged teeth. Root canals unfairly get a bad reputation among dental patients who’ve never had the treatment, but Dr. Yeary’s root canal patients know that treatment is comfortable, helps to save your teeth, and preserve your oral health.
Root canals are usually suggested when you have a tooth that has been decayed to the point that the pulp inside the tooth has become infected. During the root canal process, the pulp is removed and the inside of your tooth is cleaned. This prevents the infection from damaging your tooth to the point where it needs to be extracted. Keeping your natural teeth is always best for your oral health; root canals allow you to do just that.
Relief from Tooth Pain and Discomfort
Before beginning root canal treatment, Dr. Yeary numbs the treatment site to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. If, for any reason, you are anxious about your visit, Dr. Yeary can provide dental sedation for relaxing, worry-free experience.
The best part about root canal therapy is that it relieves you of the pain caused by tooth infections. If you’ve ever had an infected tooth, you understand how uncomfortable this oral health problem can be. Our root canal patients attest to the benefits of the root canal process once their tooth pain has been relieved and their tooth remains intact.
Restoring Infected Teeth
A root canal treats the infection, but a treated tooth also needs to be restored to ensure that it looks healthy and is able to support full oral function. After performing a root canal, Dr. Yeary will place a custom-made dental crown over your treated tooth, which will protect it and allow it to look and feel completely healthy once more.
For these restorations, we offer all-porcelain dental crowns, which provide maximum aesthetic benefit. Dr. Yeary’s goal is to provide patients with long-lasting care – if different restorative material are recommended for durability, such as metal amalgam, we provide treatment options that boost longevity of care.
