Acworth area dental team discusses the benefits of a root canal

The thought of having a root canal can be scary for patients. There has been a negative stigma against this procedure when, in fact, it is a routine treatment for infected teeth. Patients who need root canal therapy often experience pain and discomfort of a tooth, often in the form of a toothache. This brings them to the dental office for an evaluation, and the dentist advises the need for endodontic therapy.

Root canal therapy is a procedure done right in our office near Acworth for patients in and around the community who are struggling with an infection or disease that has affected the inner area of the tooth called the dental pulp. The dental pulp is a mass of tissues that contains the blood supply and nerves of the tooth. When damaged, it can become painful, resulting in a toothache. The root canal procedure is done to remove the dental pulp from inside the tooth, disinfect the inside of the tooth, and then fill it with a rubber material known as gutta percha. Gutta percha is safe and effective in sealing the tooth and keeping bacteria from entering. Depending on the strength and location of the tooth, a dental crown may be custom-made and bonded over the tooth for added strength and protection.

The primary benefit of root canal therapy is the ability to maintain the natural tooth. This eliminates the need for extraction and then restoration with dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants. This can also help maintain the bone structure, which is important for the smile's health, function, and overall wellness. Root canal therapy is typically completed in just one appointment, though a later appointment may be necessary for placement of a dental crown. The dental laboratory often takes one to two weeks to complete the final restoration before sending it to the dental practice.

Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental serve patients in and around the Acworth area with a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures. Contact them today if you are interested in learning about common procedures such as root canal therapy for maintaining dental health and wellness.

    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!
