If you experience any of the above symptoms, most likely non-surgical tool root canal treatment is recommended to eliminate the diseased pulp. The injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
Local anesthesia makes it a relatively pain-free procedure and patients are back on their feet in no time with a much healthier mouth. We are fortunate to have our experienced Endodontist, Dr. George, who performs root canal therapy for patients in Duluth, GA and the surrounding areas. Most root canals are usually completed over the course of two office visits.
The first for the actual procedure and the second after the infection has healed to place your dental crown. It is normal for your tooth to be sensitive for a few days post-procedure. This can usually be treated with over the counter medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve). Taking good care of your teeth and gums is a must after a root canal. By following good oral hygiene habits and giving your teeth the attention they deserve, a tooth treated with a root canal can stay healthy for the rest of your life.
Rotary endodontics utilizes a superior method for cleaning out the chambers that house your pulp and nerve. Because it uses a highly flexible, thin tip, it reduces the chance of damaging the fragile interior of your tooth. It is also a quieter and more comfortable method to clean out the infection in your tooth. Because of this advanced technology, your procedure will be comfortable and you can enjoy increased success when it comes to treatment.
Once Dr. Zohrabyan removes the infection, he will sterilize the area, fill it, and seal it with a temporary restoration while you heal.
