Endodontics in Houston
Brite Dental Center provides the highest quality endodontic care to our patients in a comfortable and pleasant environment. Our Houston dentist, Dr. Supritha Hangal, efficiently treats damaged teeth and helps patients avoid the complications of tooth extraction and replacement.
Endodontic Therapy from Brite Dental Center
Endodontic treatment is an option to save infected teeth. Patients who require an endodontic procedure, like a root canal, often seek care after experiencing tooth pain because of an infection. If you have a toothache and need endodontic therapy, Dr. Hangal will systematically gather the information necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. She will conduct a thorough oral exam, using digital X-rays and visual inspection. She will also test the sensitivity of the material inside your tooth (pulp).
If it is determined that the root systems of a tooth has been infected, Dr. Hangal can provide root canal therapy to remove the problem. Root canal procedures are essential in saving infected teeth. Here at our Houston practice, we provide the following endodontic services:
Root Canals - During a root canal procedure, the infected interior root systems of a tooth are cleaned out and treated with antibiotics. Once the interior of your tooth has been cleared of infection and damaged pulp, our dental team can restore its white and healthy appearance with a tooth-colored dental crown.
Root Canal Re-Treatment - Patients who received inefficient root canal therapy or restorations after a root canal at another office can be at risk for re-infection. If you’ve previously had a root canal and are experiencing pain and discomfort at the site of your treated tooth, root canal re-treatment may be necessary. Dr. Hangal can thoroughly clean root canal systems and restore your tooth to prevent re-infection and extraction.
Patients seeking endodontic care at Brite Dental Center receive treatments that are enhanced by state-of-the-art technology, such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, and ultrasonic instrumentation. These tools allow Dr. Hangal to pinpoint treatment areas and provide more accurate treatment.
Preserving Your Teeth Through Endodontics
Endodontic treatment, along with an appropriate restoration, is a cost-effective way to treat damaged teeth and is usually less expensive than extraction and tooth replacement with a bridge or an implant. Keeping your own teeth is important so that you can continue to enjoy the wide variety of foods necessary to maintain the proper nutrient balance in your diet.
Root canal therapy and other endodontic procedures have a high success rate, and many teeth treated with root canals last a lifetime with proper care. When you visit our Houston endodontist for treatment, we provide fast, efficient treatment so you keep your own teeth for as long as possible.
