Root Canal Therapy in Fayetteville, GA

The old expression, “as much fun as a root canal,” may have been appropriate in the past, but the procedure has advanced by leaps and bounds over the past several decades to become a routine operation performed by our dentists in Fayetteville. With 92 percent of American adults between the ages of 20 to 64 experiencing some kind of cavity as an adult, and almost a quarter of that group has some form of untreated tooth decay. If this decay is allowed to continue unhindered, it could lead to the deterioration of the underlying tissue and the death of the tooth itself, resulting in a root canal which is necessary to restore the health and function of the tooth.

A root canal is usually the last resort after all other dental treatments have been exhausted, including cavity fillings, crowns, and other forms of dental reconstruction. In the past, teeth that had succumbed to tooth decay were simply pulled, but most dentists would rather try to keep a patient’s natural teeth than having to resort to other means. Root canals essentially give a tooth a second chance by removing the decay from the tooth, gums and underlying root, filling the tooth and sealing and capping the outside.

Of course, root canals are invasive procedures, so dentists will have to examine a range of symptoms to determine whether the operation will proceed. Typically, dental professionals look for prolonged tooth aches and pain, darkening or discoloration, increased sensitivity to hot and cold substances, as well as tenderness when chewing or when the tooth is touched. These could be telltale signs that the underlying nerve is damaged, which will require a root canal to rectify the problem.

Additionally, while some patients may opt for the procedure to be performed by an endodontist, our dentists in Fayetteville are more than viable options who can complete the operation quickly with optimal recovery times. After the root canal is performed, most patients can get back on their feet after only a day or two, and can control the pain with conventional medications like ibuprofen, or a mild painkiller in some situations. As one of the key operations used to fight tooth decay and prevent permanent damage to teeth, root canals are an invaluable procedure that dentists use to help patients keep their natural teeth for as long as possible and put chronic tooth pain in the past.
