Each year, endodontists perform millions of root canals to treat severely compromised teeth, helping patients retain their natural smile and restore oral health. At Lubbock Endodontics, we deliver precise and gentle care, and keep pace with the most advanced technology in the field of endodontics. With the care of our highly trained professional team, you can rest assured you’re getting the best root canal Lubbock has to offer.
When a tooth has been extensively damaged by injury or decay, bacteria can seep in through the tooth’s outermost surface and infect the tooth’s center layer, which is called the dental pulp. The dental pulp contains core tissues, blood vessels and nerves, which play the role of supplying your tooth with nutrients when it’s first developing, but are no longer needed for a fully matured tooth to remain functional. During your best root canal Lubbock, our endodontist expertly removes the damaged dental pulp and then cleans and seals the tooth with biocompatible materials to prevent reinfection. For the most precise and effective outcome of care, our team can utilize advanced microsurgical techniques to perform your root canal, which allows us to magnify the roots of each tooth for maximum visualization. Microsurgical endodontic treatment can also result in less damage to the surrounding tissues and facilitate faster healing time, due to the use of smaller and more precise instruments. Although root canal therapy is more likely to resolve discomfort than to cause it, we understand patients may still experience dental anxiety and dental phobia, and offer safe and controlled sedation techniques for a more relaxing experience.
At Lubbock Endodontics, we strive to make your best root canal Lubbock comfortable and stress-free. We’ll also keep you informed and at ease throughout your course of care. To learn more about our practice or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today.
