If you have a tooth that is causing pain, visit us at Highland Dental. At our dental practice, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Michael Nguyen, can precisely determine the cause of your tooth pain and then provide you with the needed treatment. Often when a tooth is causing pain it needs to have a root canal in 30082.
When a tooth has pulp that is infected or damaged in its center, it will cause tooth pain when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon the tooth. If you are experiencing this type of tooth pain it is important that you come to our dental practice to see if you need a root canal in 30082. The sooner a root canal treatment is performed, the more likely it is that the treatment will be effective in saving the tooth. Root canal procedures are generally effective in over 90% of cases. However, if a tooth needs to have a root canal procedure and it is not performed, there is absolutely no chance that the tooth will survive; it will eventually fall out on its own, or need to be extracted due to tooth pain and infection. During a root canal procedure, our patients remain perfectly comfortable due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. Our dentist will let you know whether the root canal procedure will be performed in one or two visits. During the root canal procedure our dentist will gain access to the center of the tooth and all infected pulp will be removed. The tooth and the entire root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This should help to prevent any reinfection. At some point, you will most likely need to get a porcelain crown to cover the tooth, strengthen it, and further protect it from any additional harm. Once a tooth has fully recovered from the root canal, there is no reason why the tooth should ever encounter any additional problems.
