When to Do a Root Canal Kennesaw - Banner

Make sure your dentist in Kennesaw knows when to do a root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is not nearly as scary as many people believe, and often it is the only way to save an infected tooth and stop a painful toothache. Even if you have fears about procedures such as root canals, you should make sure you regularly visit a dentist in Kennesaw who will know when to do a root canal.

What are the signs of an infection?

Our dentists at 32 Dental know the signs of an infection and they look for them during your regular appointments. Certain teeth may be more susceptible to an infection, such as those that have been cracked or chipped or those that already have many fillings. Your dentist will take special care to examine these teeth for any signs of infection such as a change in tooth color, swollen gums, or a bump or pimple on the gum over a tooth. You should inform the dentist of any discomfort you feel such as sensitivity to hot and cold substances or a toothache that worsens when there is pressure on the tooth.

What are the alternatives?

The best alternative to having root canal treatment is to avoid the need for treatment in the first place. Practicing proper oral hygiene and visiting the dentist often can play a significant role in fighting decay. You should be careful about what you eat and avoid chewing on hard substances that can damage your teeth, and if teeth are damaged you should visit a dentist right away. When you do have an infection, your options are much more limited. Once the infection has reached the tooth's pulp, root canal therapy is the only way to save the tooth. If you don't get the treatment you need, your only option will be to have the tooth removed.

If you don't want to lose any of your natural teeth, you will want to make sure that your regular dentist knows when it's time to do a root canal treatment. Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckley at 32 Dental can ease your fears and do root canal therapy when your teeth are in danger.

    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!

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.
