If you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, there is a special dental procedure called a root canal treatment that may save that tooth. Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then your dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.
Root canal procedures do not have to be painful. However, putting off a root canal procedure can be very painful. Failure to treat an infected tooth can lead to further infection, abscesses and even tooth loss. Our Norcross dental practice offers laughing gas as well a local anesthetic to keep our patients relaxed during root canal procedures.
While visiting our office, patients enjoy comfort items such as blankets and chair side computers. Our patients also benefit from the latest technology including digital radiography (X-rays).
