The Best Root Canals in Gainesville, GA

Root Canal Therapy | Crowns | Prevention

The innermost portion of each tooth is comprised of connective tissue, blood vessels and nerves. This collection of tissues is called the “pulp.” If the pulp dies or becomes infected, the diseased tissue must be removed. If the patient desires to retain the tooth, endodontic therapy needs to be performed. This procedure was formerly known as a “root canal.”

Endodontic Therapy by a Specialist in Gainesville

The treatment involves removing the diseased pulp material from the tooth and replacing it with a filling material. A common misconception is that endodontic therapy is a painful procedure. Actually, it is similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal discomfort. As always, you can ask the dentist questions about this procedure like how much this treatment costs, or it it fits with your insurance or even the function of a crown.
