Root Canal Therapy in Abilene, TX

There could be scenarios in which tooth decay progresses to such a stage where filling proves to be ineffective. Such deeper issues require specialized treatment, known as root canal therapy. It involves in-depth removal of the decay within the compromised tooth. At Sam Spence D.D.S, we intend to provide our patients with best-in-class root canal treatment that is less painful and stressful. We strive hard to bring your smile back again.

What is a Root Canal?

It is a dreaded word for many people. The nerves located within the teeth may get hurt due to trauma or tooth decay. The pain in the tooth gradually increases. If left untreated, the infection can occur. It could then lead to tooth loss. During such scenarios, an endodontist may recommend root canal treatment.

Root Canal Treatment by Sam Spence D.D.S

Our root canal procedure by endodontists focuses on removing the bacteria located within the canal space of the tooth. The canals are shaped using special tools. To clean the canal, we make use of special rinses. A rubber-like material is then used for filling the canal. To avoid pain, we use a local anesthetic to make the tooth numb. Even though the process takes longer than a filling, patients are assured of the best results. Our dentists also advise you about the tips that need to be followed upon completing the root canal procedure. We make use of modern tools that make use of the latest technology while performing the root canal procedure. 

So if you have a toothache that persists or wants to know more about the root canal treatment, give us a call, and the Abilene dentist will be happy to help you.

Dr. Spence was an extremely happy and nice man. He did excellent work and fixed my cap in like 30 seconds. Shelby is the nicest dental assistant ive had. Super cute and easy to talk to. The cleaning was top notch and painless. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Spence and his staff are so kind and knowledgeable. He is conservative with care and does not rush into decisions but gives the kids time for growth and allows the body to do what it can before becoming invasive with procedures. 4/5 due to lack of online payment system. We've used his office for 19 years for our entire family. He is great with the kids too. He has a great laugh and I totally trust him with my family!

I have been going to Dr. Spence since I was a young kid and I could honestly say that he is such an awesome dentist. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth. He is so vibrant and kind and the rest of his staff is just as amazing. If you’re looking for a new dentist I would 110% recommend Dr. Spence. If you’re looking to get your teeth cleaned, which I recently did, the dental hygienist is literally such a sweet person and your teeth will never look or feel cleaner!
