San Antonio Root Canals End Toothaches

Many people associate root canals with pain, but actually, the procedure itself will remove the pain! For a fear-free root canal procedure, Dr. John A. Moore is the San Antonio dentist to turn to. Cosmetic Dental Associates relies on his and our team’s skill and compassion to put our patients’ dental anxiety at ease. Your treatment will:

  • Stop your nagging toothache.
  • Save your damaged tooth from extraction in most cases.
  • Prepare your tooth for a new dental crown.
  • Prevent damage to your other teeth and gums.

Dr. Moore is an award-winning dentist who taught restorative dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio for an entire decade. You can feel confident that any treatment you receive in his hands will be done with the utmost care. Call us today at 210-951-4444 to schedule your consultation with him.

Know the Symptoms That May Require Root Canal Treatment

A tooth in need of a root canal has a deep-seated infection. If left untreated, it’s possible for the infection to spread to surrounding teeth and your gums. While symptoms vary, you might need a root canal treatment if:

  • Your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold.
  • Your gum is swollen or tender around your tooth.
  • Your tooth hurts when you use it to chew.
  • Your tooth is discolored.
  • You have tooth pain that comes and goes throughout the day.
  • The dentist sees signs of infection on X-rays.

Rely on Us For Precision Root Canal Care

If it’s determined you do need a root canal, our dentist will begin your appointment by numbing the appropriate area of your mouth. He will then enter the narrow channels inside your tooth and clean out the infected tissue and bacteria inside the pulp.

We’ll use a series of files to treat the roots of your tooth, then fill them with material that prevents infection from coming back – along with the pain that is associated with it. Your tooth, now free of infection, will be covered with a dental crown for appearance, strength, and protection from further damage.

To avoid future root canals, we recommend visiting our dentist office every six months for dental cleanings and dental exams. We can also treat your teeth with fluoride to strengthen them against cavities.

Root canals don’t have to hurt – especially at Cosmetic Dental Associates! Call 210-951-4444 today to schedule your no-stress appointment.
