Lovejoy Dentistry Can Perform Anxiety-Free Root Canal Therapy near Allen, Texas

Running through the center of your tooth is a canal, called the root canal, which houses the tooth nerve (also known as the pulp). Imagine that a cavity wears a hole through your tooth, leaving the canal open and exposed to debris and bacteria. Your nerve will then become infected, causing pain and possibly even bigger oral health problems as this infection takes hold. Root canal therapy is the procedure by which we reverse this infection and save your tooth.

Alex Rouse, DDS, FADI, PA is highly skilled and experienced in performing root canal therapy, and he takes his time to perform the procedure right. A successful root canal therapy procedure can make the difference between keeping and losing the affected tooth. During your root canal treatment at our Lucas, Texas dental office, Dr. Rouse will clean the canal, removing the infected nerve, and smooth the walls of the chamber. He will then fill the chamber with a special material and cap the tooth with a crown for protection.

If you’re in need of root canal therapy but are afraid of the pain, take heart. Lovejoy Dentistry offers sedation dentistry services to help lessen your anxiety and make your procedure more comfortable. In fact, when patients opt for oral sedation during a procedure, they often don’t even remember what happened. For especially anxious patients, we can also provide IV sedation.
