Sugar Hill root canal
Do you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it? If so, you may have a tooth that needs to be treated with a root canal procedure. At our dental practice, North Gwinnett Dental Care, one of our dentists, Dr. Bridget Jorgensen or Dr. Perrice Murray, can determine whether or not you need to have a Sugar Hill root canal treatment, and provide it, if necessary.
When you come to our dental practice with tooth pain, our dentist will carefully assess your individual situation and determine whether or not your tooth has damaged or infected pulp in its center. If this is the case, you will need to have a Sugar Hill root canal procedure performed at our office in order to save the tooth. If a tooth is damaged in this manner, the only way it can be saved is with a root canal procedure; otherwise, the tooth will simply worsen in condition until it falls out on its own. However, this is not a good way to go, as you will remain in pain from your damaged tooth, and infection from your tooth can spread through your bloodstream to other parts of your body. The good news is that root canal procedures are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. And, with our state-of-the-art dental equipment, use of modern dental procedures, and excellent dental anesthesia, our patients remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair while they have their root canal treatment. During the root canal treatment, all infected or damaged pulp is removed from the center of the tooth. The tooth and the root canal system are then thoroughly cleaned and sealed. At some point after the treatment, you will most likely need to have the tooth restored with a dental crown.

Sugar Hill GA pediatric dentist
If you are looking for an excellent dental practice where your child can receive excellent pediatric dental exams and cleanings, then you will want to visit us at North Gwinnett Dental Care. At our Sugar Hill GA pediatric dentist office, your child will be seen by our expert pediatric dentist, Dr. Bridgett Jorgensen or Dr. Perrice Murray.
It is very important that your child has a good experience at the dentist so that he or she will never go on to develop any fears of dentistry or dental offices. At our dental practice, our Sugar Hill GA pediatric dentist as well as our entire staff will go out of their way to make sure that your child has a fun and stress-free time at our dental practice. It is now recommended that children come in for their first dental exam when their first baby tooth erupts, or when they reach one year of age – whichever occurs first. Baby teeth play several important roles in your child’s mouth; coming in for a regular dental exams and teeth cleanings will help ensure that their baby teeth will remain healthy and intact for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth act as placeholders for corresponding permanent teeth which have yet to erupt. If the baby tooth is lost prematurely, a tooth may end up erupting in the wrong position causing serious orthodontic problems. Baby teeth also make it possible for your child to chew his or her food thoroughly for proper digestion. Baby teeth also help your child to develop clear speaking habits. At our dental practice your child will receive complete dental exams and gentle dental cleanings. Your child can also receive fluoride treatments to help strengthen his or her tooth enamel, and get dental sealants to help protect the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars from dental cavities.
