El Paso Root Canal Specialists

Root canal treatment, sometimes referred to as endodontic therapy, often gets a bad name as being an extremely painful procedure. In reality, by using the latest dental technology our root canal specialists make root canals a quick and relatively painless treatment to relieve the extreme pain from an infected tooth. In fact, the pain you are experiencing from the tooth is often far worse than the root canal treatment.

Root canals may be needed to save a tooth from extraction if the nerve tissue within the tooth is inflamed or infected from damage or bacteria. Signs that you may need treatment from our root canal dentist in El Paso, TX include, but are not limited to:

  • Acute tooth pain, especially when eating
  • Swelling of the tooth or surrounding gums
  • Lingering tooth sensitivity from cold or hot substances
  • Discoloration of the tooth

Don’t hesitate to call us if you suffer from any of these symptoms! We offer emergency appointments and have same-day appointments available for root canals and other dental emergencies for patients in El Paso.

What to Expect from a Root Canal Therapy

If you find yourself asking, “Do I really need a root canal?” generally the answer will be yes. Postponing root canal treatment will only make symptoms worsen, until tooth extraction becomes necessary or the tooth falls out on its own.

Mesa Street Dental is committed to helping patients feel comfortable and less worried about root canals and other dental treatments. We’ll do all that we can to save your natural tooth and make the procedure as painless as possible. Saving the tooth using root canal treatment is generally preferable to extracting it as it is more cost effective than removing and replacing a tooth and will also save adjacent teeth from any issues that come when a tooth is removed.

When you come to our El Paso dental office, our root canal dentist will numb the affected area with anesthesia before removing infected nerves or tooth pulp. This is a non-surgical procedure that is carried out millions of times per year in the U.S. The canal will be thoroughly cleaned with an antibiotic solution. Afterwards, the area will be filled in and sealed shut with a composite resin. This can be completed within 1-2 appointments and your tooth will function as normal again. Just contact our El Paso root canal specialist to get started!

What Do I Need to Know After Root Canal Therapy?

  • It is common to have some soreness even after a routine procedure such as root canal treatment. Over the counter pain medications should usually be enough to make you feel better. If you have pain or swelling more than 48 hours after the root canal, please contact your El Paso Mesa Street dentist.
  • Your tooth might also be more sensitive to heat or cold after root canal treatment. This is normal and should resolve itself in a day or two.
  • Continue to follow best oral health practices by brushing and flossing your teeth. This is the most effective thing you can do to prevent reinfection from occurring. Make sure to brush gently, though, so as not to irritate or damage your gums.
  • Avoid eating straight after root canal treatment. When you do eat, avoid sticky, hard or crunchy food to give your repaired tooth time to heal up.
  • You may feel that your problem is solved but don’t forget to schedule your next appointment for a regular checkup at Mesa Street Dental. Seeing a dentist regularly is crucial to spotting and preventing further issues with your teeth.
