Root Canal Treatment

Everyone has probably heard about the root canal horror stories, but that’s far from the truth of what root canals are actually like. Patient comfort is always one of our highest priorities at Barker Dentistry & Implant Center. Since your oral health is so important, we want you to feel welcomed and relaxed during every visit to our Conroe, Texas office.

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatments are necessary when the soft pulp inside the tooth becomes infected. If you see the dentist every six months for a routine exam, this can often be avoided. It is typically the result of a cavity that’s been left alone for too long.

Dr. Barker will create an opening he’ll use to access the infected pulp. After removing it, he’ll thoroughly clean the area and fill it. Lastly, you’ll receive a custom-made dental crown to cover and protect the area from further infection.

What are the Symptoms of an Infected Tooth?

If you ever notice any abnormalities in your mouth, it’s best to see a dentist quickly to prevent oral health issues from worsening. Some of the most common signs you might need a root canal include:

  • Severe pain
  • Swelling
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Cracks in the tooth
  • Throbbing
  • Darkening of the tooth or gum

What are the Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment?

For oral surgery for patients with severe anxiety, we do have sedation options available. While you will still be awake uring your treatment, you will feel completely at ease. What we offer includes:

  • No more pain
  • Protection from further infection
  • Usually a pain-free treatment
  • The dental crown looks completely natural
