What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Broken and decayed teeth are often taken care of using a filling or another form of restoration when they are detected and managed early. But when the bacteria travel to the center of the tooth (also called the pulp), root canal therapy may be required to restore oral health and mediate the need for removal. A root canal is an endodontic procedure offered at Advanced Smiles to remove contaminated pulp tissue and seal off the damaged tooth to enhance oral wellness. Dr. Ernest De Paoli corrects infected or internally damaged teeth utilizing delicate root canal therapy and offers sedation solutions to further enhance patient comfort. When you suffer from a damaged or abscessed tooth, call our Frisco, TX practice at your earliest convenience to discover the health advantages of contemporary root canal therapy.
What Are the Benefits of a Root Canal?
Root canals performed by Dr. De Paoli at Advanced Smiles are a safe and effective way to remove damaged pulp from an infected tooth and prevent further oral health complications. Benefits of this therapy at our Frisco, TX office include:
- Preventing tooth loss
- Stopping infection from spreading to other teeth and pulp
- Improving overall oral health
- Boosting the appearance of your teeth
- Enabling normal oral function, such as regular chewing and swallowing
- Multiple sedation options for minimal pain during the procedure
The Root Canal Process
State-of-the-art techniques are employed to help ensure a person's comfort during their root canal. At Advanced Smiles, root canals are carried out with local anesthesia, which may be combined with sedation approaches to allow for greater ease. The abscessed tooth will then be exposed through a small opening made in the upper part of the tooth. The pulp, which contains the nerve center and blood storage for every tooth, will be removed, and the region will be modified using special tools prior to being carefully disinfected. Dr. De Paoli can then close off the infected tooth with an effective substance and follow that with an anesthetic filling to kick off the rehabilitation process.
What Can I Expect After a Root Canal?
Whatever oral discomfort you were feeling before your endodontic therapy should start to subside once the root canal is over. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be taken to minimize any aches or puffiness that occur following your visit. Dr. De Paoli will schedule a checkup visit a few weeks later so that he can evaluate your progress. Teeth treated with endodontic procedures are more prone to injury and generally require the security of a dental crown as soon as they're completely healed. A custom restoration might then be designed to return the function and appearance of the tooth.
Advanced Smiles Reviews
Dr.Paoli and his assistant Karen are excellent team. They were very thoughtful and caring during my root canal procedure. I was never uncomfortable in that chair. The hours that followed at home I wasn’t uncomfortable nor had pain. Excellent care!
This visit was regular cleaning and checkup. Sandy, the hygienist, was so gentle it was a treat. Dr. DePaoli found no new problems, and the partial he made several years ago still fits snug, chews comfortably and looks great! In the 14 years Dr. DePaoli has taken care of my dental needs, we've done root canal, crowns, filings, and redesigned the partial to add a tooth when one of mine had to be removed. He's the epitome of "painless" Dentist, and talks me through every step. Stephanie and the front office staff make scheduling appointments, processing insurance go smooth. I highly recommend Advanced Smiles for your family and cosmetic dentistry needs.
I cannot say enough good things about this practice or recommend them enough. I’ve been a patient here for a few years now and I love how they care about me and my overall dental health. I never feel rushed or like I can’t ask questions. During more involved procedures like root canals and crowns, Dr. De Paoli explains what to expect, takes his time and makes sure you’re as comfortable as possible. I’ve always hated going to the dentist, even had a lot of anxiety about it, and since going here, I’m now totally comfortable going. This is a trustworthy practice that knows what they’re doing and I’m so happy I found them.
