Dental Injuries and Emergency



Root canal treatment aims to disinfect the root canal system and allow healing of the surrounding tissues. Your Endodontist will achieve this by carefully shaping, cleaning and then filling the root canals of your infected tooth. Once your root canal treatment is completed, the foundations are ready for you to return to your general dentist for the final restoration such as a crown which will protect the tooth and restore it to its full function. This procedure enables you to retain your natural tooth which is likely to function better than a substitute. Root canal treatment is usually completed in one to three appointments depending on the extent of infection and your current state of oral and general health. The Seminole Dental  in Texas City is conveniently located near MS Doss City Park and Seminole Hospital District is the best dental clinic for in order to diagnose your condition.


You may have been referred to us for root canal retreatment. As with any dental or medical procedure, occasionally a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment for a variety of reasons including:

  • Narow or curved canals were not treated during the initial procedure;
  • Complicated canal anatomy went undetected in the first procedure;
  • The placement of the crown or other restoration was delayed following the endodontic treatment;
  • The restoration did not prevent salivary contamination to the inside of the tooth; or
  • Non -healing of previous pathology.
  • Successfully treated teeth may encounter new problems that may require treatment. This occurs when:


We follow the infection control guidelines outlined by the Dental Board of Australia and Australian Dental Association. These include single use CBCT items (where possible), such as the endodontic files used for your treatment. These are discarded once your treatment is complete. Where items are able to be sterilised this is done using a multi-step procedure that is validated using latest technology to ensure that any remnants of bacteria, viruses and other infectious agents are killed.

We also undertake standard precautions which include hand hygiene, wearing gloves, masks and protective eyewear for all procedures. Any sharp disposable instruments are removed immediately to prevent the possibility of needlestick injury to you and our team.


Some of our patients require some assistance with managing treatment. For a variety of reasons (e.g. anxiety associated with dental treatment), we offer the option of sedation so that you can be relaxed while treated.

Sedation can be administered intravenously or as an oral medication. Please speak to your Endodontist regarding this and a suitable option can be tailored to your needs. An information sheet will be provided detailing the pre and post sedation care.
