Root Canal Treatment Katy TX
Root Canal Therapy
If you are experiencing symptoms such as decay and infection in your tooth, it can lead to the exposure of the tooth nerves. To address this issue, Dr. Nguyen performs root canal treatment in Katy TX. This involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the center of the tooth, followed by thorough disinfection and cleaning. The area is then sealed off, and a crown is placed over the tooth for protection, strength, and aesthetics.
If you are experiencing any symptoms that may indicate the need for endodontic treatment or root canal therapy, please contact Heritage Dental - Katy.

- Persistent tooth and gum pain
- A visible cavity that compromises the integrity of the tooth
- A foul taste or odor near the tooth, even after brushing

What happens after a root canal treatment?
After the procedure, the first thing you will feel is a sense of happiness as you are now free from pain. In some cases, a filling may be used to seal the repaired tooth, but Dr. Nguyen usually recommends a dental crown to ensure the tooth's integrity. It is important to avoid chewing on that side until a permanent restoration is placed. If you experience any slight tenderness for a day or two, over-the-counter pain medications can help manage it.
