Here at Willow Tree Dental we see many patients that need root canals from Mansfield, Arlington, Burleson, Crowley and the surrounding areas. Many patients have been told that they need a root canal on a tooth in order to save it. Root canal therapy is recommended as a final effort in order to save a tooth that would otherwise be extracted. Sometimes a cavity can be so deep or a fracture can be so big that it affects the nerve of a tooth. That tooth may or may not be sensitive to touch, biting or temperature.
During root canal therapy the nerve of the tooth is removed, the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, and finally the tooth roots are filled with a biocompatible rubber-like material. Once the root canal is completed, it is restored with either a filling, inlay, onlay or crown.
Properly performed root canals have a high degree of clinical success. A successful root canal can last many years to a lifetime!
