Endodontics at Fossum Family Dental Care
Serving Endodontic Patients in Richmond, Texas
Endodontic treatment at Fossum Family Dental Care relieves dental pain and saves your teeth. During root canal treatment, Dr. Fossum will carefully remove the pulp inside of a tooth, clean, disinfect, and shape the root canal, and then place a filling to seal the space. It’s a simple procedure that will relieve tooth pain caused by infection. Here at Fossum Family Dental Care, we look forward to serving endodontic patients from Richmond, Katy, and Sugar Land, Texas, as well as the surrounding area.
What Are the Symptoms of an Infected Tooth?
When the root of a tooth becomes badly infected, it causes extreme pain. You’ll notice the pain when you bite down or chew. You may also have a painful sensation when you drink hot or cold liquids, which can linger for a time. Some patients in need of endodontic treatment have small, pimple-like bumps on their gums when they come in for their consultation. These are all common signs of a tooth with an infected root.
