Plano, TX area patients can obtain root canal treatment with Dr. Bindu Kolli
When Plano, TX patients hear “root canal,” they automatically think of a painful, unwanted dental procedure. However, Dr. Bindu Kolli of SouthFork Dental is here to change the image of this treatment and help patients better understand the benefits of this restorative treatment.
What is root canal treatment?
Within the roots of a natural tooth is tissues called the dental pulp. This mass of tissues houses the blood supply to the tooth and includes the nerves to the tooth. When damage has occurred to a natural tooth and has reached the dental pulp, the nerves can send pain signals to the brain. This can happen when the dental pulp is infected or diseased. Patients experience a severe toothache that often gets them to connect with their dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
In many cases, toothaches are treated with root canal therapy. This treatment requires the dentist to remove the dental pulp from the inside of the tooth, seal the inner canals of the tooth, and protect the tooth with the placement of a dental crown. The entire process ensures the patient is free from pain while allowing them to keep their tooth in place and avoid extraction.
Why choose root canal treatment?
There are many reasons root canal treatments are beneficial.
- Root canals avoid the need for extraction of a tooth
- Root canals can save the tooth and preserve it for proper function
- Root canals are performed correctly to ensure the tooth cannot become infected
- Root canals preserve the appearance of the smile
