Root Canal Treatment
To maintain healthy and clean teeth, each tooth is supplied with nutrients and nerves through a chamber called the root canal. When a tooth becomes decayed, it can spread downwards toward the pulp chamber of that tooth, where the nerve is located. When this nerve is damaged, it may lead to mild or severe toothache. For treatment, our primary goal will be to treat the infected area by painlessly removing the pulp, while still maintaining the structure of your natural tooth. In some cases, it might be necessary to remove the nerve of the tooth entirely and replace the canal with a filling.
What Are The Signs That I May Need A Root Canal?
There are several signs and symptoms that may indicate you need a root canal:
- Dental pain, especially when biting or chewing
- Sensitivity to extreme hot or cold temperatures
- Swollen gums in the area surrounding the affected tooth
- Discoloration of the tooth
Root canals aren’t always the most effective way to remove infections from the tooth. Even if a little bit of bacteria is left, it can lead to worsening symptoms and pain. Our specialists are skilled in re-treating tooth canal chambers by thoroughly cleaning the chamber for improved results.
The Benefits of Endodontic Treatments
Root canals are a common procedure for our Austell patients. If left untreated, the tooth may become severely infected and will eventually need to be pulled. Our dentists have gone through extensive education and training to study root canal techniques in greater depth, both for treatment and diagnosis of the most severe cases.
The benefits of our endodontic treatments include:
- Appealing results
- Maintains health and structure of teeth
- Stops the spread of infection
- Prevents degenerating jawbone
- Enhances oral and overall health
- Allows for eating and speaking like normal after treatment
