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.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
