Non-Surgical Root Canals in McKinney
What Our Patients Can Expect
Root canals are a common dental procedure, but they often cause patients a great deal of anxiety. The idea of having a needle poked into their teeth is enough to make many people queasy. Fortunately, there is now an alternative to traditional root canals that doesn't involve any drilling or needles. Non-surgical root canals (NSRCs) use lasers to clean out the infected tissue inside the tooth.
The procedure is quick and painless, and it has a very high success rate. Best of all, it can be done in a single visit to the dentist. If you're looking for a way to avoid traditional root canals, NSRCs are definitely worth considering.
How Is a Non-Surgical Root Canal Performed?
A non-surgical root canal is a minimally invasive procedure that treats a variety of dental problems. The most common reason for this procedure is to remove any plaque and bacteria from your teeth and root canals. It helps to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
During the procedure, the dentist will insert a small device into the affected tooth. This device uses ultrasonic waves to break up plaque and bacteria. The debris is then suctioned away, leaving the tooth clean and healthy.
In some cases, a temporary filling may be placed in the tooth to protect it while it heals. Most patients only experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure, and they can usually return to their normal activities within a few days.
Signs You Need a Root Canal
You might need a root canal if you have severe tooth pain that doesn't go away. The pain may be caused by an infection in the tooth's root. Other signs that you might need a root canal include:
- Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Swelling in the gums around the affected tooth
- A pimple on the gums near the affected tooth
If you have any of these signs, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. They will determine whether or not you need a root canal.
