Root Canal Therapy in Vinings, GA

Saving a tooth with infected or inflamed pulp.

Root canal therapy may be necessary due to infection, trauma, deep decay or a poorly positioned tooth. Often, root canal therapy serves as an alternative to tooth extraction. Root canal therapy lets you retain your tooth by removing its nerves, as opposed to tooth extraction, which involves removing the tooth entirely. Regardless of the cause, a Dental Professionals of Vinings dental professional can provide the care you need through a range of root canal treatments.

What to expect when having a root canal

Underneath the tooth’s enamel and the hard layer, called the dentin, lies the soft tissue pulp. The pulp helps grow the root of the tooth during development. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, it can cause pain or even an abscess. A root canal involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully disinfecting inside the tooth and then filling it with a safe, rubber-like material called gutta-percha. The tooth will continue to function normally without the pulp.

The procedure not only improves the appearance of the infected tooth, it enables you to bite and chew normally. It also prevents excessive strain on the other teeth that surround the problem tooth.

Root Canal Therapy

Our doctors specialize in root canal treatment based on the location of the infected tooth. Your Dental Professionals of Vinings dentist will generally complete your treatment in one to two office visits. Here’s what you might expect, depending upon the type and seriousness of the problem.

During root canal therapy, we will clean, shape and fill the canal space within the root of the tooth.

Retreatment may be necessary if the root canal becomes re-infected. Performing the root canal treatment a second time creates an environment that will promote healing.
