If the term “root canal” makes you squeamish, then Distinctive Dental Services is your source of relief. Dr. Elrod has performed root canal therapy for hundreds of patients throughout Lake Jackson and beyond. Our experience and advanced technology allows us to offer root canal therapy that will treat the infected area in just one or two comfortable visits.

When the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged, a root canal is often necessary to restore the health of the tooth. Putting off a root canal can necessitate tooth extraction and lead to a lot of pain and expensive procedures down the road.

During your visit, Dr. Elrod will:

  • Remove the infected and injured tissues
  • Clean the tooth
  • Fill the tooth with a medicated material
  • Cap the tooth with a restoration such as a dental crown

Our entire dental team works hard to minimize your discomfort during this routine procedure. A root canal from Distinctive Dental Services is a quick and comfortable way to restore your dental health and get you smiling again.
