Experiencing tooth pain or discomfort can significantly impact your daily life, and at Athens Dental Design, we are here to provide relief and preserve your oral health. Our experienced dentists and caring team offer root canal therapy, a vital treatment aimed at saving your natural tooth and eliminating pain.

When Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?

The need for root canal therapy arises when the inner pulp of your tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged. This situation can occur due to various reasons, such as:

  • Severe tooth decay that reaches deep into the tooth
  • Undergoing multiple dental procedures on a single tooth
  • Chips or cracks in the tooth’s surface
  • Trauma or injury directly to the tooth

The root canal process involves meticulously removing the compromised pulp, cleaning the interior of the tooth and then filling and sealing it to prevent further issues. This procedure is crucial not just for alleviating pain, but also for stopping the spread of infection to other areas of your mouth or body.

We understand that the thought of undergoing a root canal can be daunting for some patients. However, at Athens Dental Design, we prioritize your comfort and employ state-of-the-art techniques and technology to ensure the procedure is as smooth and painless as possible.
