Endodontics in Mission, TX

It’s no secret that tooth pain can put a damper on your day. That throbbing sensation and the inability to eat or drink without distress is downright miserable, so it makes sense that you would want to get rid of it as soon as possible!

Fortunately, there are options for serious dental issues like severe decay, which include endodontic therapy. Endodontics focuses on removing any infected material inside the tooth due to disease or injury before sealing up the tooth with filling material. It’s an effective way to keep teeth healthy and intact.

Benefits of Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatments can be essential for relieving discomfort and restoring dental health when there is damage to the dental pulp. Root canal treatment, pulpotomy, and apexification are endodontic therapies that have saved countless unbearable toothaches and can even prevent an extraction altogether. After endodontic treatment, patients often benefit from healthier gums, improved oral health maintenance routines, avoiding further fractures, and returning to their daily activities without discomfort!

Expect Caring and Compassionate Care

Endodontic treatments are invaluable for saving teeth severely damaged by decay. All three endodontic treatments offer immense benefits for people who must otherwise turn to more drastic measures like tooth extraction if untreated:

Endodontic Treatment for Kids

Typically, Dr. Ochoa typically only recommends pulpotomies for children. So, what is a pulpotomy? A pulpotomy is a minimally invasive procedure often the best option for saving primary teeth in children. When a primary tooth suffers from extensive decay, Dr. Ochoa can gently remove the infected or dead pulp to save the tooth from early extraction.

What is apexification?

Apexification offers a unique solution for treating immature permanent teeth that have suffered from irreparable damage to the pulp. This method involves careful manipulation of root growth and development, with the goal being closure at its tip without any additional thickening or length changes in the canal walls, preserving the tooth’s natural structure so it will remain healthy long term!

Endodontic Treatments for Adults

What is a root canal?

During root canal therapy, Dr. Collantes effectively removes infected tissue and abscesses from the top of the crown to the bottom of the tooth root to reinstate the patient’s dental health and relieve root canal pain.
