Advanced Endodontic and Root Canal Therapies for Dental Health

Endodontics is a dental specialty focusing on treating the dental pulp and root tissues. At H-Town Star Family Dentistry, we offer both general endodontic treatments and specific root canal therapies to save your natural teeth and relieve pain.


Understanding Endodontics: Saving Your Natural Teeth

Endodontic treatments are necessary when the pulp of the tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed. This can be due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks, or trauma. The goal is to preserve the tooth and prevent the need for extraction.

Root Canal Therapy: Procedure and Benefits

Root canal therapy is a common endodontic procedure. It involves:

  • Removing the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth.
  • Carefully cleaning and disinfecting the inner chambers of the tooth.
  • Filling and sealing the tooth to prevent future infection.
  • Often followed by the placement of a crown to restore the tooth's function and appearance.

Benefits of root canal therapy include:

  • Alleviating tooth pain and discomfort.
  • Stopping the spread of infection.
  • Maintaining natural tooth appearance and function.

Post-Treatment Care and Longevity of Endodontic Treatment

After endodontic treatment, proper care is crucial for longevity:

  • Follow all post-treatment instructions for oral hygiene and care.
  • Regular dental check-ups to monitor the treated tooth.
  • Good oral hygiene practices to prevent future dental issues.
