About Root Canal Treatment
Damaged or deteriorating teeth are typically treated with a tooth-colored filling or a different type of replacement when they're identified and managed early. However, when left untreated and bacteria spread to the core of the tooth, also known as the pulp, root canal treatment is usually necessary to restore oral function and mitigate the need for extraction. A root canal is an advanced therapy offered at Zensmiles to remove contaminated inner tissue and seal off the affected tooth in order to restore dental health. Board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Shardha treats infected or internally damaged teeth using advanced root canal therapy and offers sedation solutions to further boost patient comfort. If you have a significantly damaged or abscessed tooth, call our Frisco, TX practice at your earliest convenience to learn about the perks of delicate root canal treatment.

"1/19/2028 ZENSMILES IS AMAZING,TRUST THE REVIEWS!! Truth be known I HATE going to the dentist....from the smells to the sound of drills going to even simple X-rays.....I have had several tooth related problems in past from cavities, crowns, root canals, to implants on 2 teeth ...finally mentally I ended up w a phobia of the dentist..... until I met the team st ZENSMILES FRISCO!!!! Outstanding, compassionate, knowledgeable and for the very first time I wasn't frightened to see Dr Sharda and his amazing team this morning for surgery... From Karen at the front who comforted me last Saturday because I was in tears, to Amber who does X-rays and works beside the Dr, to Dr Sharda himself ... I cannot thank each one of them enough for finally helping let go of my fears of dentistry ...Dr Mohit Sharda is by far the best dentist I have ever seen in my 42 years of life...we all have a calling in life and dentistry is clearly his passion... thank you so very much ZENSMILES for what you do each and every day :) Sincerely, Christy Herndon"- C.H. / Yelp / Apr 27, 2018

I visit Zen Smiles on a regular basis and I have nothing but gratitude to express. Dr. Sharda is superb, very friendly, trustworthy, knowledgeable and a skilled professional. He listens to you patiently, understands and explain everything in the layman terms. The entire crew is awesome including Karen at the front desk who is courteous and a nice person. She made things a lot easier for me with billing, insurance, appointments etc. All in all a great team!!!"- K.P. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"I was in need of cosmetic work that included crowns and veneers on my front teeth. Dr. Sharda did incredibly thorough job making sure the veneers and crowns looked real and match the rest of my teeth. Multiple pictures where taken and included free follow up sessions until my smile was perfect. Dr. also spotted an underlying issue with a botched root canal and sent me to another great specialist to get it addressed. They where upfront about costs as well so no surprises there. Extremely happy with the results and highly recommend Zensmiles!"- P.W. / Google / Aug 04, 2019
"I would highly recommend zensmiles and Dr Sharda, I had my front bridges done in Europe when I was younger and they where failing, I did not want to loose my teeth, Dr Sharda along with his root canal specialist where able to save my teeth and give me a new smile, Earlier I would always put a hand on my mouth when laughing, but now I can smile with confidence. Just feel so much better about myself and I am so glad I found this place. My nephew is a dentist in NY, when I visited him and he looked at the work, he said it is "textbook" perfect. I am a very happy patient. Thank you Dr Sharda and his entire staff."- T.G. / Google / Apr 04, 2019

Are You a Candidate for a Root Canal?
Damaged tooth pulp could be a result of significant tooth decay, a large break, or an accident. Dr. Shardha can call for a digital scan and perform a dental exam to find out if a root canal or another procedure is required to relieve tooth discomfort and save your oral wellness. Several of the signs that may indicate the need for a root canal include sharp or dull tooth discomfort, other lasting dental pain, discomfort while biting, and sensitivity to high and low food temperatures. You may also have swelling focused around your lower face or gums, a pus-filled boil around your gum tissue, or discoloration of a tooth after an injury.
The Root Canal Process
We use advanced techniques to help elevate our patients' comfort during root canal treatment. At our Frisco, TX office, root canals are done with local anesthesia and may be coupled with sedation services to allow for increased ease and comfort. Once the tooth is numb, Dr. Shardha will place a covering to safeguard the patient's teeth and gums and will examine the abscessed area through a small opening created in the upper part of the tooth. He'll then take out the pulp (the structure that contains the nerve center and blood supply inside of every tooth) and restructure the area using handheld tools prior to thoroughly sterilizing it. Dr. Shardha will then seal the damaged tooth with a special material and follow that with an anesthetic filling to kick off the recovery process.
Save Your Tooth and Smile
Damaged or infected teeth can introduce a wide range of oral and general wellness concerns when not treated quickly. However, thanks to advances in current dentistry, root canals at Zensmiles are an effective approach to rescue your tooth and, ultimately, your dental health.
