In your search for information about the root canal therapy procedure, your Little Elm, TX dentist, Dr. Vidya Suri, will first talk about what this treatment is not. There are many lingering myths that surround this common, proven, and highly effective restorative treatment, available at Frisco Elm Dental. So, let us clear up a few things:
For many patients, root canal treatment preserves the natural tooth. But no treatment has a 100 percent success rate. Should we be unable to save your tooth, Dr. Suri will then discuss the extraction process, and ways to replace the tooth. Since root canal treatment removes infected tissue, nerves, and vessels, patients immediately express relief from often severe pain and pressure associated with deep decay. With the nerves gone, you do not feel anything! As the root canal itself is sterilized and sealed off, and the tooth is often restored with a permanent dental crown, the procedure helps you get back the natural, attractive appearance of a tooth marred by damage, and provides lasting functionality.
The conditions that require root canal treatment are highly preventable. But know that Frisco Elm Dental has the skill and tools to perform root canal therapy should you need it. Call (214) 705-7100 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Suri at the Little Elm Dental office.
