What Are Root Canals?
When Do You Need a Root Canal?
If you are experiencing persistent pain and sensitivity in your teeth and gums, you may need root canal therapy. However, patients with a root canal infection may experience a wide variety of symptoms, including:
- Moderate to severe tooth or jaw pain
- Persistent bad breath
- Tooth discoloration (usually a darker shade)
- Swollen, tender, or discolored gums
- Pimples or other lesions on the gums
- Lingering pain or sensitivity from hot or cold items
Root canals can save a tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. While Dr. Bell will do everything possible can to save a tooth, extraction is sometimes the best solution to restore your oral health. In these cases, we offer tooth replacement options such as implants. To request a root canal consultation, call our office in Lake Jackson, TX, at (979) 297-1201.

Why Choose Bell Dental For Your Root Canal Needs?
Sedation dentistry can help patients with dental anxiety or those who have trouble sitting still for long periods due to conditions like arthritis. Patients can request oral sedation, which is a pill taken before the procedure that puts the patient in a relaxed state. Ask Dr. Bell about adding sedation to your procedure.
We're proud to offer same-day crowns so you don’t have to wait weeks after a root canal for your permanent restoration. Our computer-assisted design and manufacturing system allows us to provide crowns on the same day as root canal treatment. Ask about same-day crowns during your dental consultation.
