What is endodontics?

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the study and treatment of the inside of your tooth, namely the dental pulp and tooth nerves. When tooth decay or damage becomes more extensive, it often reaches the dental pulp and causes a infection. If left untreated, the tooth nerves can die off and the tooth will be rendered useless. Past this point, the tooth must be removed. Our talented dentists at Marietta Dental and Implant Center may suggest root canal therapy to save your tooth and your smile.

What is root canal therapy?

A root canal in Marietta, Georgia, is a restorative treatment that generally takes only one visit to our dental office. While your tooth is numbed, our caring dental team removes the infected dental pulp and tooth nerves. The whole of your tooth is thoroughly cleaned and the inside is filled with a medicated, rubber-like material. The cusp of your tooth is then sealed off with a filling or crown. We are dedicated to ensuring you are comfortable and relaxed during your visit to our office for root canal therapy. Our goal is to restore your smile and give you a reason to keep sharing it. If you would like to learn more about root canals with Dr. Tracy Dillon and Dr. Danielle Greene, we invite you to contact our dental office at 770-435-6888 today!
