Root Canal Therapy | Endodontic Care in Galleria, Houston

Galleria Smiles always aims to save an ailing tooth whenever possible. One of the best ways to achieve this is with root canal therapy. This involves removing the infected or damaged inner portions of a tooth, also known as the dental pulp. The dental pulp plays an important role in the health of your tooth, such as providing it with nutrient and nerves. However, when the dental pulp is damaged, it can harm the well-being of your entire tooth. Thus, a root canal prevents this by removing the damaged dental pulp and refilling the inner area with special material.

During the procedure, a gap is drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored inlay/onlay or crown.
