Root Canals Drive Away Infection

Many of us will experience dental health woes at some point in our life, ranging from mild cavities to severe decay. Whatever your oral concern, swift intervention is key to restoring and maintaining your healthiest smile.

A root canal is one of the most effective ways of treating an infection in the root of your tooth, and though the procedure sounds intimidating, Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta is equipped to make your time in our chair as comfortable and quick as possible. If you are suffering from a root infection, let us put you back on the path to oral health.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

Root canals are commonly performed on teeth that have either a deep cavity or a severe crack or fracture. Signs the root of your tooth has become infected due to this damage are extreme sensitivity when consuming hot or cold foods or beverages or a sharp pain when biting and chewing. Visual symptoms include swollen, tender gums, obvious damage or decay to your tooth, or dark discoloration of your gums or tooth.

How does a root canal fix my tooth?

At our office in South Atlanta, we use a thorough cleaning process to flush away any bacteria, stopping further decay in its tracks and preserving your tooth. Your dentist will begin a root canal by administering anesthesia to keep you relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

During the procedure, your dentist will clean out the bacteria that has formed in the root of your tooth. They will next disinfect the area and insert a filling and sealant to restore your tooth to its optimal health as well as a dental crown to protect your tooth.

Don't let a root infection ruin your smile. Call Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta today at 404-629-9290.
