At West Houston Endodontics, we specialize in saving teeth. At our Katy dental office, our expert endodontists, just one of whom is Dr. Armando R. Mejia, will always be here to help when you need endodontic services to help save a problem tooth.
There are many reasons people come to our Katy dental office. Sometimes our patient can have a painful tooth in need of a root canal treatment, or a patient may have a tooth which has been knocked clearly out of their mouth. Whatever type of care you need to help save your tooth, you can receive it at our office. If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you probably have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center. When this is the case, the tooth will need to have a root canal treatment in order to be safe. If this treatment is not provided, and the tooth is not extracted, the tooth will only end up falling out on its own. Happily, root canal treatments are generally effective in saving over 90% of teeth. However, sometimes a root canal procedure cannot be provided if the tooth is too injured or damaged. When this is the case, our endodontist can extract your tooth while you remain perfectly comfortable at our dental office. Our patients’ safety and comfort is always our number one priority; we use oral conscious sedation for our patients to make sure they have a comfortable time at our office whether they are having a root canal procedure, or other important endodontic treatment. If a root canal treatment fails, our endodontist may be able to provide you with a successful endodontic retreatment. We also offer an apicoectomy to remove infection from the root and surrounding tissues. If you have a cracked tooth, we can provide appropriate treatment for this, as well as other dental injuries.
