Root Canal (Endodontics)
Root Canal Treatment in Atlanta, GA
The dental specialty of endodontics deals with the nerves in teeth. The most well-known dental procedure and the most frequent endodontic operation is the root canal. The nerves in the tooth’s root are typically involved when a tooth becomes infected. It’s necessary to remove the affected nerves. If left untreated, an infection can develop into an abscess, a far more dangerous condition that can result in jaw bone loss.

A Local Anesthetic is Used to Numb the Area Around the Tooth to Start the Procedure
The dentist will then make an entrance into the canal by drilling into the tooth. After that, the canal can be cleaned and infected tissue removed. Once the infection has been eliminated, gutta percha is used to seal the area. It is very advised to place a crown on a tooth that has had a root canal. This will make the tooth look better and greatly increase the likelihood that the root canal will be successful.
