There is nothing wrong with hoping that your teeth are all healthy, and that you will not need any sort of restorative dental work. After all, your goal should be to keep your smile in the best possible shape at all times! However, if there is a reason to think that you might require treatment, you should not delay in setting up the appropriate restorative care. Your Dallas, TX dentist’s office is ready to fully treat any issue that is hurting your smile. If you need to do something about a tooth that is infected because of advanced decay, or any other problem, we can set up a root canal treatment and make sure the matter is completely managed.

When Is A Root Canal Treatment Required?

A root canal is not required every time something might be wrong with a tooth. There are times when tooth decay can be completely resolved without a root canal, and many injuries are not serious enough to require this procedure. With that said, if there is an issue with the inner chamber, or pulp, of a tooth, it is important to set up a root canal as soon as possible. Any infection that attacks the interior of your tooth can worsen over time, resulting in the further spread of decay, and the loss of the tooth!

Fully Arranging Your Restorative Dental Work

We can make sure that your oral health needs have been fully met over the course of restorative work. The first step will be to survey the condition of your tooth, and see what kind of care you might need. If the situation calls for a root canal treatment, your dentist can make sure the procedure leads to the total removal of harmful bacteria and damaged tissues. After this is done, your pulp will be sealed, and you will receive a dental crown for your tooth.

Sedation Can Help You Remain Comfortable During Dental Work

If your discomfort around dental care is preventing you from scheduling the care that you need, you can talk with your dentist about the benefits of dental sedation. Sedation has helped many people who struggle with anxiety relax in the dentist’s chair, and undergo whatever treatment they required. A sedative can be safely administered, and you can remain conscious throughout your procedure. With nitrous oxide, the effects can actually wear off in time for you to drive yourself home!
