Damage to a tooth or untreated cavities can eventually lead to infection in a tooth’s inner part, known as the pulp. This area is made up of nerves and roots and can become quite painful when infected.

If you have a severe toothache, are experiencing prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, or see discoloration in a tooth, you could have an infected tooth. Call us for an appointment today.

With root canal treatment, our dentist will access the pulp through a small opening in the top of the tooth. We will then clean out the infection from inside the tooth and apply germ-killing medication to get rid of any residual bacteria.

Then our dentist will use 3D thermal techniques and gentle pressure to inject a rubber-like material into the sterilized root canals. This special filling method helps ensure that the root canals are completely blocked off and can’t get reinfected. The tooth will then be resealed.

A new porcelain crown is usually recommended as the best way to restore a tooth repaired with a root canal procedure. The crown will strengthen the tooth and help prevent further problems.

Call us today to schedule your consultation for root canal treatment: 770-766-8995. Stop your pain and save your tooth!
