Endodontics is an affordable dental care specialty that treats diseases affecting the inside of teeth. Root canals are the most common type of endodontic treatment. To understand how the treatment works, it helps to examine the anatomy of a tooth. Under the layers of white enamel and dentin, there is a center containing soft tissue; this is called the tooth’s pulp. It contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. It extends into the tooth’s roots. Once a tooth is fully mature, the pulp is no longer needed for tooth development, and it can be removed safely through endodontic treatment.

When is an Endodontic Procedure Necessary?

Endodontic treatment is needed when a tooth’s pulp is inflamed or infected; this can occur for a variety of reasons including deep tooth decay, cracks or chips, and traumatic injuries. If the problem isn’t treated, severe pain or a tooth abscess may develop. If you need a root canal or similar treatment, seek an endodontist Atlanta patients recommend for the best results.

Signs that Endodontic Treatment is Required

Although symptoms are not always present, signs you need a root canal procedure from an endodontist in Atlanta include the following:

  • Tooth pain
  • Sensitivity to extreme temperatures
  • Tenderness that occurs when chewing
  • Facial swelling
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tender lymph nodes

How a Root Canal Procedure with an Endodontist in Atlanta Can Save your Tooth

First, your endodontist will remove the infected pulp. Next, he or she will clean and reshape the inside of the canals. Finally, the space will be filled and sealed. A ceramic crown will be placed over the tooth to restore its normal appearance and function.

Will the Procedure Cause any Pain?

During the root canal procedure, your endodontist will inject an anesthetic to numb the nerve that supplies sensation to the tooth. Your tooth may be sensitive for a few days after the procedure, but you should not feel any significant pain.
