What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Damaged or decayed teeth are generally treated utilizing a filling, inlay, or onlay when they are detected and dealt with in the early stages. However, as the decay makes it to the center of the tooth (also referred to as the pulp), a root canal is sometimes needed to restore dental health and protect the tooth from extraction. A root canal is a specialized procedure performed at Urgent Family Dentistry to extract infected pulp tissue and restructure the affected tooth to regain dental function. Dr. Cigdem Er and Dr. Yaser Hamdan treat abscessed or centrally damaged teeth by performing thorough root canal therapy, along with sedation dentistry to further enhance patient relaxation. If you suffer from an extremely damaged or infected tooth, contact our Plano, TX practice to learn more about root canal therapy.

What Is the Root Canal Process?

Modern techniques are employed to boost your comfort during your root canal procedure. At our Plano, TX practice, root canals are performed under local anesthesia and may be coupled with sedation techniques to keep you at ease. Once the tooth is numb, a cover is placed to shield your surrounding mouth structures. The impacted region will then be exposed through a tiny opening created in the upper part of the tooth. The pulp, which is the part that consists of the nerve center and blood supply for each tooth, will be removed, and the area will be reshaped with advanced endodontic instruments prior to being entirely disinfected. We will then protect the infected tooth with a temporary crown to encourage the healing period.

They where so friendly! I was mad nervous at first but then they really made me feel warm and welcomed and calmed me down to get 4 root canals!! Omg! I definitely will be back!

Great experience! Everyone was very nice, and was dedicated to making you feel comfortable and pain free. I am normally extremely anxious going to the dentist but had no anxiety here. Follow up! Came back to do a root canal and was scared to say the least.. I was expecting a lot of pain and there was literally none. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Outstanding care and treatment. 2 prior providers wanted to proceed without a clear cut plan. Urgent Dr had a clear plan, timeline and estimate of cost. Root canal and extractions were performed flawlessly and temporary crown put on. I highly recommend this Dr and his staff!

I had a wonderful experience at Urgent Family Dentistry. I came in with quite the emergency and felt confident in Dr. Hamdan's expertise when he put me at ease with his bedside manner. His team ended up doing a root canal on me and approached it with utmost precision, even though the job proved to be tricky. I had a temporary crown put on before my permanent came in and while it fell out a few times (which I hear is common for a temporary) the office was flexible with having me walk in during different times of the week to come in and fix it very quickly. Special shoutout to the dental assistants - very professional and just genuine humans, made my experience much less traumatic than it could've been.

An unexpected root canal at 8 months pregnant. Yikes. I lost a filling on a Saturday and was PANICKED about getting an infection and hurting my growing baby. After getting OB approval, I made an appointment with Urgent Family Dentistry for the coming Wednesday. I was really anxious, but the whole staff was so kind about the experience. I received lots of reassurance that the steps we were taking were in line with my OBs approved care. Root canals are uncomfortable, but I felt SO well taken care of. Dr. Hamdan was incredibly kind and gave constant updates about what he was doing. I've never experienced such kindness in a dentists office before --- the whole staff made me feel welcome and were very accommodating to my needs in pregnancy. I was very impressed! I highly recommend Urgent Family Dentistry!!
