Root Canals in Flower Mound

Effectively & Efficiently Treating Your Damaged Teeth

The term used to describe the natural cavity within the center of a tooth is a root canal. The cavity contains a soft space –pulp chamber or pulp – as well as the tooth’s nerve. The nerve is responsible for your tooth feeling both cold and hot. However, if dental conditions require your nerve’s removal, the tooth can still continue to function and maintain good health.

When Do I Need a Root Canal?

Disease, decay, or injury damages the nerves within your tooth. The internal space of your tooth houses the pulp or "nerve," and when the pulp becomes exposed due to a crack, break, or large cavity, the tissues and blood vessels that transport waste and nutrients to and from your tooth become infected and require removal to save the tooth. Past treatments necessitated 100% removal of the damaged tooth. Today, sedation dentistry, technology, and modern research make it possible for Titensor Dental to perform a root canal treatment. Dr. Titensor can restore and retain your tooth for you with minimal discomfort. Usually, a root canal in Flower Mound involves just one visit to our office.

What Symptoms Lead to a Root Canal?

After a dental exam, Titensor Dental may suggest a root canal much to your surprise because, at times, no symptoms occur.

However, if you experience one or more of the following issues, you may need a root canal:

  • Your tooth darkens
  • Your gums become tender and swollen
  • Your tooth senses intense pain when chewing
  • Your gum develops a white, pimple-like bump
  • Your tooth causes pain when it’s exposed to cold or hot drinks or foods

What is a Root Canal?

During a root canal in Flower Mound, our dentist removes the damaged nerves and nearby tissue within your tooth. Then, he cleans and seals the inside area. Next, we fill the tooth with a dental composite. Finally, the external surface of your tooth is sealed. Most times, Titensor Dental recommends capping the tooth using a dental crown to strengthen and restore your tooth.

What Happens Post-Root Canal?

The next couple of days after your root canal, your tooth remains sensitive because the procedure irritated the tissue around your tooth. This is true especially if you experienced pain or infection prior to your root canal. Titensor Dental will suggest pain and anti-inflammatory medications for relief. Even though you might experience slight discomfort, you can generally resume your normal, everyday activities the very next day. If you maintain regular and healthy dental care, your treated tooth can last for the rest of your life.

Dr. Steven Titensor is an extremely skilled, award-winning dentist in root canal treatment and rarely needs to refer you to outside specialists for this procedure.
