Root Canals

Austin root canal dentist

A “root canal” refers to the hollow space that is in the center of the tooth.

A root canal procedure removes the nerve (which may be dead if it is infected) and the pulp of the tooth. Once the area is cleaned and properly prepared, the tooth is protected with a crown that will save the tooth to avoid complete removal.

How do you know if you need a root canal?

If you have any of the following difficulties:

 - Recurring trouble with a tooth

 - Severe pain when you chew

 - Your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold, or

 - Swelling, tenderness or a bump on the gums near that tooth, you could need a root canal.

If you suspect you may need a root canal, contact us for a visit.


Here is what some clients have told us about their experience with us:

I have always dreaded going to the dentist because it hurts and is no fun. Then I found this place. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I've had 2 wisdom teeth pulled while I was awake, and felt nothing. They walk you through all steps and let you know everything you may feel. I pay the extra money and drive a distance just for the service and no pain. It's great and I totally recommend them to anyone who is like me with that fear that the dentist office stinks.

Have been going there for the past two years. Very courteous and professional. Do good work also. - Ralph W

Very professional Doctors that preform high quality work and a great staff that stays on schedule. - Scott S.

I had a pain on my left front teeth and eye for a long time. When I went to see Dr. Cho, she found it out at my first visit that I had an infection. After I've treated with Root canals, my pain was gone. I was very relived and pleased with the outcome. I am very grateful to have such a knowledgeable dentist and awesome staff!!!!! - Kim P.
