Root Canal Therapy in McKinney, TX

When broken or decaying teeth are caught early, they can often be fixed with a filling or another type of restoration. However, if decay reaches the tooth's center, also known as the pulp, a root canal may be necessary to maintain oral health and avoid tooth extraction. At Tracey Dental, we perform root canal therapy to remove infected tissue from within the tooth and seal it to improve dental health. Dr. Dorian Long specializes in treating abscessed or internally damaged teeth with gentle care, offering sedation to make the experience as comfortable as possible. If you're experiencing severe pain or suspect an infection in your tooth, don't hesitate to contact our McKinney, TX office to learn about the benefits of root canal treatment.

At Tracey Dental, we prioritize your comfort during root canal procedures by employing the latest techniques and anesthesia. Local anesthesia, along with optional sedation services, offers a stress-free experience. Once the affected tooth is fully numbed, we safeguard your mouth with a protective covering. Dr. Long then accesses the tooth through a small opening at the top to remove the pulp, which contains the tooth's nerves and blood supply. Using specialized instruments, the area is thoroughly cleaned. The tooth is then sealed with a durable material, followed by a sedative filling to kickstart the healing process, ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery.

I have been going to Tracey dental for 3 years and have always had a great experience. Dr. Long is very thorough and takes time to make sure all my dental concerns are addressed. I never feel like he is pushing treatment plans or products that are unnecessary or premature. I have had a root canal, crowns, fillings and cleanings done under his care and I am very pleased with the procedures and outcome of all the work I have completed with him.
