No one wants a root canal, but this procedure is sometimes an absolute necessity in order to maintain full oral health. Should a tooth or nerve become decayed or infected, root canals can save the affected tooth and relieve the pain associated with it.
The BGW Dental Group team will work with precision and speed to ensure that they preserve your tooth – which can actually prove the safest and best option for your mouth. Rather than pulling or losing the tooth, preserving an affected tooth may help you avoid more significant problems for your other teeth.
How do you know if you need a root canal? A mixture of symptoms will indicate your requirement, including:
- An abscess on the gums (which includes significant swelling and pressure on your gum and tooth)
- Sensitivity to hot and cold compresses
- Severe tooth pain
Root canals can be completed in one session with our trained and experienced dentists. And while the procedure does require some time in order to completely remove any traces of bacteria or decay, as well as affected nerves, and then properly seal and fill the tooth, you can be certain that it will fully relieve the problem.
If you suspect you require a root canal, please call us immediately at 678-582-8099 so that we may aid you in either our Braselton or Gainesville offices.
