Saving Teeth

Root Canals in HoustonWhen a tooth is threatened by extreme decay, disease, or damage, a root canal may be the only way to save it. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, root canals relieve pain.

During a root canal  (or endodontic treatment), the soft tissue in the root of the tooth is taken out. This tissue contains veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Once the roots are cleaned out and widened, they are filled with a special rubber material.

The root canal is only the primary step in the complete tooth restoration. After the root canal, without a crown, the tooth will become dry and brittle. The last steps are the core build-up and crown.

Too often, people are frightened by the prospect of having a root canal. But it’s usually the only way to save a tooth, and at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston they’re not much different than having a cavity filled. We also offer complete general dentistry services.
