Root Canal Treatment in
Schertz

When there is an infection deep inside the tooth, a root canal may be necessary to extract the decay. If left untreated, the infection may lead to tooth loss.

Inside every tooth is something called the root canal. It’s a natural cavity that lies at the center of the tooth. In this cavity is soft tissue known as pulp. This is also where the nerves of the tooth are. When the pulp or nerves inside the root canal are damaged or infected, bacteria multiply within the pulp chamber. Left untreated, this type of infection can lead to tooth loss.

Symptoms of a root canal infection include:

  • A severe toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swollen, tender lymph nodes
  • Swollen gums and recurring abscesses

The procedure for root canal starts with applying anesthesia for your comfort. We offer local anesthesia, laughing gas or oral sedation. We will then access the inside of the tooth where the infected pulp lies. The pulp, infected bacteria and decayed nerve tissue will be removed, and the root canal will be thoroughly cleaned. Then the tooth will be sealed. A dental crown is typically used to prevent further damage and to restore the tooth to full function.

Thank you so much to Dr. Vardeman & team!! I was recently seen for my wisdom teeth removal & I was extremely nervous of being put under, but they are very reassuring & they will always make sure you are comfortable. I'd like to add that they are always very accommodating here as well, between a fulltime job, school, my family at home, and other appointments I have going on, they are always able to work with my busy schedule. Thank you for being amazing!
