Tooth pain typically strikes when you are least expecting it, and it can unfortunately derail your plans until you can see a dentist and have the problem treated. Severe tooth pain or signs of infection may signal the need for root canal therapy, a type of endodontic treatment. If you have been searching for a “root canal center near me” and live in the Conyers, GA area, you have come to the right place. At Conyers Endodontic Center, our team specializes in endodontic therapies that are designed to save your natural tooth and relieve your pain so you can get back to your routine.
Root canal therapy is a procedure that is often considered a “last resort” before tooth extraction. It may be recommended in various scenarios, but the common factor underlying the need for root canal therapy is that the tooth’s interior contents (the pulp) have become severely damaged or infected. That may occur due to:
During root canal therapy, the contents of the pulp chamber are removed, including the blood vessels and pain-sensing nerve. The area is then thoroughly sanitized to remove any bacterial infection and filled with a material called gutta-percha. The tooth is then finished with a natural-looking restoration – typically a porcelain dental crown – to protect it from further damage and restore the shape and function of the tooth. After root canal therapy, many patients never have to think about their treated tooth again as long as they maintain good home hygiene and regular dental visits.
Having a dentist that you can trust is essential to maintaining good oral health for your lifetime. However, in some cases, a general dentist may not have the sufficient expertise, tools, and technologies necessary to provide advanced treatment options. While many dentists can perform root canal treatment, they may refer you to our team of endodontic specialists because:
