Root Canal Therapy in Dallas
Save Your Teeth and Restore Your Smile
When it comes to dental care, early detection of cavities and decay is vital to preserve oral health and prevent the need for more extensive oral surgery. If left untreated, trauma and decay can lead to an infection of the tooth’s root and surrounding nerves.
In these situations, a root canal procedure may be necessary in order to salvage the remaining tooth structure and avoid extraction. Dr. Brock Lynn performs endodontics treatments, including root canal therapy, to aid patients of Lynn Dental Care who are experiencing tooth pain due to advanced infection. Keeping both patient health and comfort in mind, Dr. Lynn can treat the affected area successfully.
Lynn Dental Care will help you avoid losing your teeth to infection by quickly and effectively cleaning out the area and sealing your tooth with a dental crown. A dental crown will usually be needed to complete your root canal treatment. Our crowns are long-lasting, durable, and designed to match the existing color of your teeth and smile. By capping a tooth with a dental crown, we can protect the original tooth structure after the treatment has been performed and allow you to continue using the tooth as normal without discomfort.

How Our Root Canal Process Works
During an initial dental appointment, Dr. Lynn will examine the mouth to determine the degree of infection and decide if root canal therapy is the best course of action. This may include taking digital X-rays, using a pulp tester, and applying hot or cold compresses to determine the tooth’s sensitivity level. If the root is infected, Dr. Lynn will begin a root canal treatment. This involves removing the infected nerve tissue and cleaning the surrounding areas.
Once this is complete, Dr. Lynn will seal the canal with a thermoplastic sealer to prevent further infection from returning to the root. Usually, a dental crown is created to restore strength and appearance of the smile. For your comfort, root canal therapy is typically performed with local anesthesia and is nearly pain-free.
Making Your Comfort a Top Priority
We understand that root canals can lead to anxiety in some patients, as they might be under the impression that the treatment will be painful. That’s why our compassionate team at Lynn Dental Care does everything in our power to make your treatment as gentle and relaxing as possible. With the help of dental anesthetic or sedation, along with noise-blocking Bose® headphones to listen to music, your root canal treatment can be an easy and painless experience. We also utilize the power of ozone therapy. Ozone in water can kill bacteria by rupturing their cell membranes. Not only does ozonated water and gas help to minimize dental anxiety, it works to free the mouth of bacteria, helps strengthen the teeth, and makes it less likely that you will require a secondary procedure. Dr. Lynn has over 35 years of dental experience and can help you achieve the healthy mouth you deserve.
