Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

When the inner area of a tooth becomes infected, you may need a root canal. Root canals are the passages that run from the tip of a tooth all the way through the tip of the root. All teeth have 1-4 root canals. A large portion of tooth problems are caused by infections that spread to the inner chamber of the tooth. This chamber is referred to as the “pulp” and it contains blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. Physical injuries can damage the pulp, and when infections worsen, they can affect the root of the tooth. Diseases in the inner tooth lead to pain and sensitivity, and an aggressive infection can form small pockets of puss that may lead to an abscess.

The most effective treatment is root canal therapy. This procedure removes the diseased tissue, halts the spread of infection, and restores the healthy portion of the tooth. This remarkable treatment was designed as the alternative to extracting a diseased tooth, and has had great success so far. Our Marietta root canal dentists can help provide relief in a time of need.

Root Canal Procedure

The entire process of root canal therapy usually requires one to three visits, depending on the extent of the damage. First, a small hole is drilled into the inner chamber of the tooth; diseased tissue is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and completely disinfected to stop the growth of the disease. The interior canals are reformed and filled with a special elastic material with medication that prevents infection.

The pain of this procedure is minimal and the resulting tooth can last a lifetime. If you are looking for an emergency dentist to perform root canal Marietta, GA, our dentists can help.
