What’s the Purpose of a Root Canal Procedure?
Occasionally, a tooth becomes so decayed that infection reaches the root canals of your tooth. When that happens, the soft, pulpy tissue inside your roots becomes diseased, leading to considerable pain. If left untreated, this infection can spread and lead to significant tooth, jaw and health issues. Root canal surgery removes the infected tissue, relieving your pain and repairing your tooth.
What Are Signs That a Root Canal Is Needed?
Always pay attention to tooth pain, as it’s a warning sign that there’s a problem with your tooth. Take a look below to discover other symptoms that may point to the need for treatment:
- Swollen gums near the infected tooth
- Steady tooth pain that is severe to moderate
- Tooth sensitivity to touch and hot or cold temperatures
- Tooth discoloration
- Pain that occurs when you bite or chew
What Type of Dentist Specializes in Root Canals?
Endodontists specialize in treating the tooth’s inner area, and they’re often recommended for patients whose cases are complex or when re-treatment is required. For routine cases, a general dentist can also perform the treatment. If you are searching for an experienced root canal dentist, call us to consult with one of our skilled dentists.
What’s the Process for Dental Root Canal Therapy?
The procedure takes from one to two hours. Here’s what will happen:
- Your dentist numbs the tooth.
- A rubber shield is used to isolate the tooth and keep it free of saliva.
- Our dentist makes an opening in the crown of the tooth.
- Using very small instruments, our dentist removes the infected pulp tissue and cleans and shapes the tooth’s root canals.
- The now-empty root canals are filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
- A root canal crown caps your tooth to prevent the tooth from fracturing.
What’s the Typical Price for Root Canals?
Each patient’s costs are unique, depending on issues such as how damaged the tooth is, whether work is needed to prepare the tooth, and whether the procedure is performed by a dentist or endodontist. The number of roots in your tooth also affect the price. Front teeth have only one root, while a molar has four roots. Your dental insurance may cover part of your root canal cost. Call our office to schedule an evaluation with our experienced dentists, and we can give you a cost estimate based on your individual needs.
How Do Root Canals Differ?
Standard root canals are used most frequently to save a molar, but the treatment can be effective on all types of teeth. If you have had an unsuccessful previous treatment, your dentist may recommend an apicoectomy. This treatment removes the tip of the tooth root. A pediatric pulpotomy may be effective for some patients, removing the diseased pulp from the tooth and leaving the nerve in place.
What Should I Know About Dental Root Canal Treatment?
Delaying root canal treatment when you are experiencing pain or other symptoms puts your health at risk and leads to needless suffering. We’ll use local anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the procedure and provide pain relief. If you think you may need a root canal in Atlanta, call our office today.

Our patients leave smiling
Dr Washington was awesome and His team took Great care of me.. Thanks Kesha For Calling And checking on me next day!!!!
Great dental office! No one likes the dentist, but the folks at Dental One Toco Hills make it a painless and pleasant experience. Everyone is so friendly and kind, assuaging the fears of even the most scared dental patient. Kesha made a point to help us utilize our insurance coverage, and Dr. Lisa was so kind and encouraging. Having a periodontist and orthodontist in the office makes more complica…
I feel like family when I come to receive my treatment. I never experienced any problems with customer service from my hygienist down to the receptionist. I feel like they always have my best interest in mind.
I’ve been going here for years to see Dr DeAngelis. My last visit was my first ever gum graft. I was uncertain of how things would go as I heard how painful this would be. Kesha made my wait time entertaining as she broke the ice and made me laugh. Great personality to make anyone feel comfortable. Dr Washington performed the procedure and it took about an hour or so. Not once did I feel pai…
I have been going to this location to get my teeth cleaned for a few years now. My original hygienist moved to another location so I have had quite a few different ones during my past few cleanings. Unfortunately I no longer felt like I was receiving the same level of service as I originally received and I never felt like my teeth were really cleaned when I left. I went to the office this week for…
The staff is very knowledgeable about cost/services. I especially appreciated Kesha. She took time to explain my current conditions, suggested treatments and cost effective solutions based on my insurance/financial commitment. Thanks for going the extra mile.
The very best care I have ever had – and I am an older lady. Hats off to everyone – from the greeter who is friendly and efficient. To the person handling the billing who worked hard to get my bill down to the lowest possible. To the dental assistant who was friendly and professional. To the dental surgeon who did an amazing job. I am happy to be healing well…
I like the way Dental One take care of my teeth and the customer service that is always rendered. Thanks for your service!
I have been a patient of this Dental practice for about 20 years. I have never had a bad experience with the staff, technicians, the Doctors, or the facility. I have always been treated with respect, genuine concern for my feelings and dental procedures, and the doctors have been very good at providing detail information and answering all of my questions relating to a dental procedure. I have a gr…

Dr. Washington has a great personality and makes you feel comfortable with your upcoming procedure.
I have been a patient with Dental One for years and the service has always been excellent
They are very professional.
Everyone was nice and polite from the beginning to the end. They explained everything they were going to do clearly. They were gentle in x-ray and cleaning. And I got in and out in about an hour on my first visit, which is rare in my experience. I will be going back.
I’ve been coming here for a few years now. They pretty much treat me like family. We’re all on a first name basis when I arrive for my appointments. Kesha (the treatment coordinator) knows how to run a business!
From Kesha who is the treatment coordinator to Dr. Lisa, you will receive excellent attentive and very professional care. I have been with them for over 2yrs and have always been given the best care and service!
I have been a patient at Dental One Associates for many years and always appreciate their patient care. I had difficult news a couple of visits ago and I want to thank KESHA particularly for sitting down with me and offering possible options that helped me feel better. THANK YOU KESHA!
John is a fantastic hygienist. He’s thorough but gentle and he has excellent bedside manner. He puts me at ease!
I am a first time patient at Dental One Associates. I had a dental issue that was causing pain. I called the office and explained the situation and they got me in to see Dr Jewett that same day.

He offered me a couple options and then…

I gladly drive an hour to go to this location because I trust everyone there. Every member of the staff that I come into contact with has always been friendly and professional. My latest visit was great because I had to have a kind of aggressive procedure (deep gum cleaning), but the woman who did it was gentle and kind. I can’t think of a single thing that would improve my visits to this de…

Dr. Washington and his assistant were great as I went through my procedure on Thursday, October 26. While having three teeth pulled and deep cleaning done is never going to be a good time, it was probably the best it could have been. They paid attention to me and responded quickly. I felt like I was in safe hands. I would really like very much to thank Kesha. She absolutely goes above and beyond i…

I have been seeing Dr. Jewett here for years, and have always gotten great care. Dr. John the hygenist is also also amazing, and was so gentle and understanding about my anxiety around my gum issues. I recently had a deep cleaning, and was very upset about both the cost and pain involved, but he helped to make it as smooth as possible. Their front desk, dental assistant, and insurance staff are al…
John is by far the best hygienist I’ve ever had. He make me feel comfortable, he’s super smart and details everything he’s doing so I’m never in the dark about what’s going on, and I’ll go as far to say that without him I wouldn’t be routinely in that office. Thanks a million John. I literally don’t know what I’d do without you.

This review may be a little unusual, as I am writing as a former patient. I moved to another area and changed dental offices a few years ago for geographical convenience. In order to facilitate the processing of an insurance claim for my current dental office, I needed some information from my records at Dental One. I was fortunate enough to reach Erma when I called. She was warm, patient, and kno…
