Root Canal Therapy - Saving Your Damaged Teeth

Posted on 6/8/2020 by John
Root Canal Therapy - Saving Your Damaged TeethA damaged tooth is a common dental problem, which affects many people. However, despite being common, it can lead to an unbearable experience – pain, and inflammation –, and if left, untreated, it can result in the loss of the tooth and the spread of the infection to other teeth, the gums, and the jawbone. It is thus important to treat the tooth as soon as possible, which not only helps to save it but also prevents other additional dental problems. At North Atlanta Family Dentistry we offer several dental solutions for damaged teeth, including the root canal therapy.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a dental treatment used to repair and save damaged teeth. The treatment involves treating the root canal – the innermost part of the tooth that contains pulp, nerve endings, and blood vessels. During the treatment, the damaged or infected pulp matter is removed, and then the canal is cleaned and filled up to prevent further infection.

When is a Root Canal Necessary?

A root canal treatment is necessary when your tooth is infected as a result of decay, and when the infection has spread to the pulp. Root canal therapy might also be necessary following a dental trauma if the injury has caused damage to the innermost parts of the pulp.
It is possible to identify whether you might require root canal treatment through the following symptoms of a damaged or infected tooth:

•  Tooth pain
•  Swelling of the gums around the affected tooth
•  Tenderness of the surrounding gum tissue
•  An abscess around a tooth - for advanced infection

Do you have an abscess around your tooth or are you suffering from a toothache? You might require root canal treatment. Call North Atlanta Family Dentistry today at (470) 387-0500 to schedule an appointment.
