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.
