About Root Canal Therapy in Canton, GA

Comprehensive care is provided for a wide variety of complex conditions at MINT dentistry. Our team is here to help you achieve a dazzling smile, which starts with a healthy mouth. The team of board-certified doctors and dental professionals at our practice in Canton, GA performs root canal therapy to treat an infected tooth in situations where a dental filling is no longer a viable option. Sometimes called an endodontic treatment, a root canal removes the infection from the pulp, which helps stop the infection from spreading. The MINT dentistry team is aware of the concern that is associated with root canals. However, we want you to rest assured that we understand, which is why we focus on your comfort by utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to complete your root canal therapy with accuracy. MINT dentistry also offers several sedation options to ease fears so you remain relaxed. Schedule a consultation at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA to find out more about how a root canal can restore your oral health.

Who Is a Candidate for Root Canal Treatment?

The reasons the interior of a tooth can become infected are vast, including an untreated cavity, a physical trauma, or a crack in the enamel. The most common signs that you may have an infected tooth are a toothache, a blister-like lesion on the gums (close to the tooth), and changes in the color of the tooth. When the pulp is not removed, you may have increased pain and symptoms, especially if the infection moves to other teeth and into the underlying jawbone. In some cases, the infection could enter the circulatory system and impact your systemic health, making it important to seek professional care promptly. During your treatment consultation, our Canton, GA MINT dental practitioners can evaluate your tooth and let you know if a root canal is recommended for addressing the oral condition and saving your tooth.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

Once you’ve settled into our massaging treatment chair with Beats headphones and MINT dentistry sunglasses, your appointment will begin. We want you to feel at ease so your team will help you select the appropriate sedation dentistry method for your root canal therapy. Patients usually request nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral-conscious sedation to keep them comfortable during a root canal. Once you are ready, your doctor will remove the pulp utilizing state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. From there, the empty tooth will be sterilized to remove any lingering debris. Once your tooth is cleaned, we will fill it with a special material to protect and seal it. Often, a crown will be cemented over the treated tooth for protection.

Root Canal Treatment Aftercare

After your root canal therapy appointment is complete, it may be a good idea to have someone you trust escort you home, especially since you will likely undergo some sedation. Your mouth and lower face may be sensitive or swollen for a while so your dentist may prescribe a pain reliever. You should make a follow-up appointment six months after your procedure. Your dentist will make sure your tooth has healed and the infection is gone. After that, you should schedule twice-yearly cleanings at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA to maintain your dental health.

The MINT Commitment

Your needs, budget, and details of your treatment will all be discussed so that everything is truly customized for you during your consultation. If you have insurance, we will reach out to your carrier to determine your remaining bill after your benefits are applied. If you do not have dental insurance, MINT dentistry takes most payment methods. Our staff can also talk with you about healthcare financing, which might make it easier to afford regular dental care and treatments, like root canal therapy.
