Root Canals

Austin root canal dentist

A “root canal” refers to the hollow space that is in the center of the tooth.

A root canal procedure removes the nerve (which may be dead if it is infected) and the pulp of the tooth. Once the area is cleaned and properly prepared, the tooth is protected with a crown that will save the tooth to avoid complete removal.

How do you know if you need a root canal?

If you have any of the following difficulties:

 - Recurring trouble with a tooth

 - Severe pain when you chew

 - Your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold, or

 - Swelling, tenderness or a bump on the gums near that tooth, you could need a root canal.

If you suspect you may need a root canal, contact us for a visit.


Here is what some clients have told us about their experience with us:

The staff and doctors (Carlos Diaz, DDS) were great, they showed knowledge and compassion for their practice. I was scared since it was my first Dentist visit, however, Dr. Diaz made sure that I had no pain by keeping constant communication during the procedure. I recommend Dr. Diaz at Brownsville Family Dentistry to anyone who has not been to the dentist in the past. - Agustin C.

Yesterday I went for a general cleaning. Teeth felt great afterwards. The people at Brownsville Dentistry are very considerate, caring about my dental health and well being. - Joan Walker G.

Very nice staff, was in deep pain and they took me in right away. Excellent Service! - Krystal C.

Thursday morning, I had an appointment at 10:00 A.M. Upon entering the office, I was met by one of the secretaries. Immediately a technician called my name and took me to a room where she x-ray my teeth. Afterwards the young doctor came in and checked my teeth and we had a small conversation concerning my health.  Afterwards a young lady came in to clean my teeth. Before departing I was given an appointment for Oct. 19.2017. Overall experience was exceptional. - Guadalupe L.

Thank you to all your team this morning for the help and comfort I got! The experience was amazing after all I had gone through at the hospital, may God bless you all! - Idalia R.
