Gentle Root Canal Treatments
When many hear the words “root canal,” they associate them with pain. When we hear root canal, our thoughts shift to saving a tooth. At FLOSS Dental, we can save a diseased tooth with a root canal procedure and do it painlessly. Our team specializes in painless treatments that are the product of the most innovative technologies in modern dentistry. Our offices are equipped with a full range of top tier dental instruments that enable us to handle all types of root canal and related procedures.
FLOSS Root Canals
The right tools often make all the difference in dental procedures. Consequently, when you arrive at our office, you’ll notice some of the tools we utilize to raise the bar of root canal treatments.
FLOSS Dental provides root canal treatments in 10 convenient FLOSS locations Coppell, Lakewood, Southlake, Oak Lawn, Park Cities, Preston Royal, Uptown Dallas, 5th Street, 38th Street and San Antonio, Texas
Computerized Digital Radiography
This advancement in x-ray tech does not use film, which considerably reduces patient exposure to radiation and protects dental practitioners from film chemicals. Additionally, these digital files are easily archived, enlarged, printed, and can be forwarded to doctors if required.
Electronic Apex Locators
The length of teeth varies. Electronic apex locators provide dentists with the exact length of a tooth. Apex locators saves time but reduced the amount of radiation needed by eliminating the need for xrays at every step;
Sonic and Ultrasonic Instrument
During the root canal procedure, it is necessary to clean the tiny canals at the base of the tooth thoroughly. These instruments use sonic and ultrasonic energy to meticulously rid the root canals of harmful bacteria and microorganisms.
Surgical Operating Microscope:
Increased illumination and magnification are the two most impressive benefits of this new technology. Surgical microscope allows the practitioner to better visualize and treat the intricacies of the root canal system, therefore achieving more success in their treatments.
What To Expect
After your initial dental examination, a root canal procedure begins with preparing the mouth and area of the dental work.
To ensure that the process is pain-free, our dentists will provide you with anesthesia to numb the site. After that, the dentist will access the nerve chamber in a preparation that much resembles having a filling done.
The opening allows us to access any dead materials or infection that may be present inside the tooth so it can be removed easily. Merely removing the infection is not enough. It is critical to ensure that the infection doesn’t reoccur. Therefore, we use special tools and methods to completely sterilize the canal.
Finally, the canal and the pulp that was removed are finally replaced with a biocompatible agent that helps strengthen the tooth. The crown is placed top of the tooth and the channel is closed.
You may experience minor soreness after the procedure. Fortunately, this can be managed with ibuprofen, or a prescription pain medicine. If you experience major pain or pain that lasts more than a couple of days, make sure you reach out to your FLOSS dentist for instructions.
This morning I had the best dental visit of my life! Odd thing to say I know. Bijal was the best hygienist ever and by far. Not only did she do a great job it was almost pleasant. Sara, the dentist that saw me was great too. Will be sending more of my family.
Best Dentist Ever!!! Dr. Forney even called and texted several times over the weekend check on my husband after his extensive dental work. If you are within a 30 minute drive from Stone Oak, she is well worth the drive!! We highly recommend her and her amazing team!
Dr. Forney is a fantastic dentist, and the whole team is engaged, caring, and efficient. My visit to Dr. Forney's office was the best experience I've ever had with a medical professional. I never imagined that I could actually enjoy going to the dentist. She's awesome!
Floss Dental is the absolute best. I've been going there for several years and I would not even consider going anywhere else for my dental needs. Everybody is friendly, facilities are excellent and their #1 goal is to make you comfortable while there. I love you guys!

I love FLOSS- I am a big kid when it comes to needles. FLOSS understands this phobia. Dentist numb me with minimal or no pain felt. Looking forward to my new smile... Kudos to office staff just the same- they are kind, professional and laugh at my silly sense of humor woot woot!!
Excellent service and have never waited more than a minute to be called back! Advanced technology, warm staff, and quick yet thorough service makes for a great trip to the dentist!!! Highly recommended!
Great place. Easy to get into. I loved how nice the staff was to work with. I would recommend to anyone! I had a great experience!
Their staff is very friendly and attentive. Dr Paiva is really cool and she knows what she is talking about. They are very professional about everyhting and can also joke around which is nice in a dentist's office.
The team at Floss is terrific. Kind, thoughtful, professional, efficient. Just had a checkup followed by fillings and whitening. I'm so impressed & will be bringing my whole family.
I went to Floss today and was very pleased. I have not been to a dentist in over 5 years because I hate going to the dentist. Floss was friendly, comfortable and informative. The high tech equipment allows the patient to see most of what the dentist is seeing and the recommended treatment. I will return to this dentist on a regular basis.
Hate the dentist? Well you won't after you start going to Floss. Amanda has helped me not only by getting me the right plan to straighten my teeth but taking a step farther and helped me with finances. She did more work than she needed to to make sure I could afford the treatment I needed. The staff is always friendly and they make you feel comfortable even when you're getting uncomfortable work done. The atmosphere is professional and friendly.
I couldn't ask for a better experience.
Jerry my hygienist was so amazing very thorough and knowledge-able. Best and most friendly hygienist in a while !
The team at Floss Dental on W 38th far exceeded my expectations during my first visit. My boyfriend had just broken up with me minutes before my dental appointment, and I was slightly emotional, but it turned out that being at the dentist was the best place I could possibly be. They treated me like family, and I am so grateful.
In addition to their kindness, the quality of care was great as well. I was impressed.

Amazing overall experience! I went to the Quadrangle location and had excellent service from start to finish. I really enjoyed the modern technology and being able to see my xrays and photo images of my teeth from the chair. Honest and friendly. Would recommend to anyone.
Recently moved from Houston and was a quite thrilled to find myself back at another FLOSS in Dallas. My appointment with my 6 month cleaning was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The facility is very modern and clean which helps ease any tension of going to the dentist. They walked me through my cleaning and it was a simple process. This dentist office makes going to the dentist enjoyable. Glad to be back at FLOSS!
Love this place! The staff was very, very friendly. We were seen promptly, which is a huge plus. Highly technological. The initial x-rays are super cool! Not only can you see the film, but you can see inside of your mouth tooth by tooth in HD! It's the coolest thing I've seen in dentistry in such a long time!! The dentist and the hygienist were both professional and informative. The cleaning was thorough, yet gentile. The tech who greeted me and took my x-rays was very courteous. I can honestly say I can not wait until my next appointment in October! Thanks Floss Dental!!!
Dr. Bhakta is very committed to the wellbeing of my teeth. He is tenacious and encouraging. He's the first dentist to help me create a treatment plan the sounded like "this can improve" after we do some work and tweaks. Very optimistic and honest. I really like him and his work ethic. Not something I've said about a dentist in a LONG time. I highly recommend him and the gracious staff at this location.
These guys are great! Dr. Wright and Dani especially! My hygienist is pretty awesome too! 🙂
Great people, atmosphere and service. Thank you for taking such good care of our family!
Dr. Barclay and the rest of the staff was wonderful. I went in because I was having issues with fillings I had gotten from another office. She fixed everything and they even whitened my teeth. I'm so happy to have finally found my new dentist office.
Fantastic Staff!!!! Dr. Jacobson is professional and attentive to her patients dental needs. If you need a dentist, you must come here!
Probably the best dentist I have ever visited in my entire 33 years on this Earth. Seriously this place is extremely top notch. The entire staff is friendly, the dentists are extremely nice and thorough. They literally go over every picture they take of your teeth. I think I found a dentist office I will continue to go to for the rest of my life.
