Root canal therapy may sound daunting, but at Dental Excellence of Kennesaw, we want to put your fears to rest. Our experienced dentists and team are well-versed in performing root canals with precision and care, aiming to relieve your discomfort while preserving your natural tooth, eliminating the need for extraction.

So, what exactly is a root canal treatment? It is a dental procedure designed to address and rectify infected or inflamed tooth pulp, which is located within the tooth. Infections often occur due to deep decay, a cracked tooth or repeated dental work. If left untreated, this infection can lead to excruciating pain, abscess formation and even tooth loss.

During the root canal procedure, our skilled dentists will meticulously remove the infected pulp. After thorough cleaning and sterilization of the inner canals, we fill the area with gutta-percha, a specialized material. To bolster the tooth’s strength and protection, we cap it with a crown.

Thanks to modern advancements in dental technology, root canal treatments are now more efficient, comfortable and successful than ever before. Our practice also employs state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure a virtually painless and anxiety-free experience for our patients. Moreover, we offer various sedation options to help you relax during your treatment.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, heightened sensitivity to temperature, gum swelling, tooth discoloration or a recurring pimple on the gums, please schedule an appointment promptly. Ignoring these symptoms can lead to further complications, including the spread of infection and potential tooth loss. Seeking timely treatment from Dr. Lisa Kirshenbaum or Dr. Thomas Shaw can help you avert these issues and preserve your natural smile.
