Root canals are no cause for fear in Kennesaw & Tucker, GA

Root canal therapy has a bad reputation, but it is unfair. In truth, this treatment gets you out of pain and lets you keep your natural tooth. In the gentle care of Dr. Kay Kalantari, root canals performed at Dentistry and Orthodontics at Kennesaw Point offices in Kennesaw & Tucker, GA are typically non-traumatic and have an excellent success rate.

What is root canal

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a tunnel extending from the center of the tooth to the tip of the root. It carries blood flow and houses nerves that let you feel bite pressure and temperature sensation. Endodontic treatment is the process of removing vascular and nerve tissues that have become infected and inflamed. The procedure is commonly referred to as root canal therapy, or “having a root canal.”

Root canals bring relief to Kennesaw & Tucker, GA patients

Bacteria thrive in the warm, moist environment of your mouth. When protective enamel and dentin structures are compromised, some bacteria make their way to the central pulp chamber. This is commonly the result of tooth decay or a chip or crack. As bacteria multiply, pressure from infection builds in the pulp chamber, irritating nerves.

You may experience:

  • An annoying toothache that comes and goes
  • Discomfort when you bite down or chew
  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet
  • Pus or foul smell
  • Swollen face, or swelling inside the mouth
  • Acute pain

Dr. Kalantari allows time in her daily schedule to see urgent cases promptly. She examines your mouth and takes x-rays. A course of antibiotics may be prescribed first, or she might treat the tooth right away.

Job one is getting you comfortable. The doctor may suggest an oral sedative if you are anxious about treatment. Then the tooth is thoroughly numbed, bringing immediate relief. From the patient’s perspective, the rest of the procedure is similar to getting a filling but takes a little longer. After infected pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed, then protected with a crown. Since the source of discomfort (the nerve) is gone, there is generally no further problem.

Review By Andrehina F.
I got a deep cleaning and a crown done by Dr. Kay and staff, everything was really handled perfectly. I needed a crown because I got a root canal done by another dentist and it was never crowned! Thank you Dr Kay for catching that up! Excellent staff, excelent atmosphere, I’d definitely bring all my kids and family to my new dentist’s office!!!!!
