Quick Relief for
When the outer layer of a tooth (enamel) is damaged by bacteria, this is what we call a cavity. Sometimes, the decay can progress, causing the internal tissue, or pulp, to become infected. Problems in this area are the source of some of the worst toothaches. Rather than just removing the tooth, Dr. Barker can save it with root canal therapy in Houston, TX. Between his experience, conservative approach, and sedation, this often-feared procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a filling, and most patients’ only regret afterward is not coming to see us sooner!

The Root Canal Procedure
A root canal involves numbing the patient’s tooth, placing a small hole in the enamel, and using it to remove the infected tissue as well as clean the interior. Once the tooth is free of bacteria, it’s filled to replace the internal structure and add stability. To strengthen the tooth even more, Dr. Barker will also place a dental crown, which will be completed at a follow-up appointment.
