Root Canal treatment at 32 Dental Practice, Kennesaw, GA

Root Canal treatment at 32 Dental Practice, Kennesaw, GA A root canal is a common dental treatment to alleviate pain and/or infection of a decayed or injured tooth. This may be due to a nerve of a tooth, and is oftentimes caused by a cavity or some sort of decay within the tooth. Trauma can also cause problems to your tooth, such as the clenching or grinding of the teeth. When a root canal needs to be done, we will remove the inflamed nerve tissue from the tooth.

When performing a root canal procedure, we will first install a rubber dam or “rain coat”, which will isolate the tooth as a protective barrier so that the medications we use during the procedure stay within the tooth and not in the patient's mouth. Then, we access the dental pulp chamber and we use tiny files to clean out the canal that houses the nerves and the blood supply to the tooth. Once this area has been cleaned out, we will disinfect the canal, and then place a filling material within the canal space to seal it and keep it from becoming infected with bacteria, which can cause further inflammation.

Afterwards, the tooth will need a build up and a crown in order to cover the tooth and prevent fractures. When a root canal is performed the nerve, nutrient supply, and blood supply to the tooth will be gone and the tooth can become brittle. This increases the likelihood that a tooth will crack or break, so a crown can help protect the tooth that received root canal therapy and keep it from experiencing further cracking/problems down the road. If a tooth that has received root canal therapy in the past ends up breaking, it may break to the point where the tooth may need to be extracted and all the efforts to save the tooth have been wasted.

Aftercare: Avoid chewing and eating until all numbness is completely gone. Take pain medication before the anesthetic wears off. Take the antibiotics as prescribed by our doctors. Brush and floss normally. Call us if sensitivity to pressure lasts more than a few days. Rinse your mouth three times daily with warm salt water to reduce discomfort and swelling. Limit yourself to calm activities for three to five days. Avoid crunchy foods. It is essential to have the tooth restored with a crown within two weeks of the root canal to avoid fracturing the tooth. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Root canal therapy is a very common procedure. It has a reputation of being undesirable and painful. But when done properly it is actually painless. Every tooth in your mouth is composed of a crown and a root. When a cavity or bacteria penetrates the tooth, the root and its nerves become irritated. As a result, the bacteria within the pulp cavity needs to be removed and cleaned in order to restore the tooth to its healthy state. Following the procedure, the tooth is fragile and consequently is restored with the natural crown for a lifetime of durability. Root canals have a success rate of 95% or greater. Most root canal are diagnosed by patients’ sensitivities to a specific tooth. Be sure to consult your dentist any symptoms or discomfort occur.

I LOVE 32 Dental!! I was absolutely terrified of going to the dentist before going to Dr. Vo, but now I don't even bat an eyelash at having to go to the dentist. Absolutely outstanding practice all the way around, from Drs. Vo and Breckley to the hygienists and Diane and Robin who are there to greet you warmly when you arrive. Highly recommend!! ~ ~ Thea N.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
