Have a Question?
Ask Dr. Bibb any dental related questions.
Dr. Bibb at Design Dental Group can stop your discomfort and likely save your tooth with a modern and virtually painless Root Canal.
If tooth decay reaches a tooth's nerve, a root canal procedure can save the tooth from extraction. Essentially, a root canal involves cleaning out a tooth's infected root, then filling and sealing the canal.
Why a Root Canal?
A cavity that has been left untreated can spread. Once the decay reaches the tooth's pulp, an infection forms at the base of the root canal, causing an abscess. This abscess is generally painful, and a dentist will need to clean it out.
The dentist places a post and crown when there is not enough tooth structure left for retention after your root canal procedure to support a crown. The dentist will place a post upon the tooth root. The dentist will then make a crown build-up around the post. Next, the dentist places a crown on the build-up.
Houston residents suffering from tooth pain can call (713) 869-0334 and book an appointment to have Dr. Bibb examine their teeth and relieve their pain. Don't suffer needlessly with tooth pain. Let the friendly staff at Design Dental Group save your tooth help you to smile again.
Apexification is a procedure that closes the end of an open tooth root. Apexification is for treating permanent teeth with incompletely formed roots that require root canal therapy.
Apexification is an endodontic method for spurring the growth of a calcified barrier at the apex of a nonvital tooth with incomplete root formation.
With apexification, the dentist encourages a calcified barrier to form over the immature tooth's open apex by removing the unhealthy pulp and placing medication into the root.
Successful apexification causes hard tissue to form near the root tip and acts as a barrier to the root canal filling.
Sometimes the infection persists even after root canal therapy. In these cases, an apicoectomy, or root end resection can be performed to remove diseased tissue.
