Patients in the Houston area who believe they could benefit from root canal therapy must first schedule a consultation with a dental team they know and trust. At Vivid Dental, Dr. Monti Harpalani and his team can assist with this and many other procedures that can be used to restore the health and wellness of the smile.
Root canal therapy is a procedure that is often performed to address infection inside of a tooth. In the center of the tooth is the dental pulp, which includes the nerves and blood supply. If this becomes infected or injured, it can become extremely painful, resulting in a toothache. The only ways to treat this is to perform a root canal or to extract the tooth. It is desirable to keep the natural tooth in place; therefore, the removal of the dental pulp and disinfection of the tooth is the best option for many of our patients.
If patients are experiencing a toothache, they may feel as though a root canal is the only treatment option. However, it may not be necessary. A toothache may indicate another problem such as a cavity that could be easily repaired with a filling instead. Dr. Monti Harpalani encourages patients to schedule a consultation appointment and evaluation to discuss whether a root canal is even necessary to bring the smile back to health.
