Root Canal in Peachtree City GA
What is a root canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.
To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.
What happens after treatment?
When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
How much will it cost?
The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

The staff is very caring and show true concern for the pain you have. Dr Brown is wonderful and gentle. I had a great experience and no pain during my rootcanal. The tooth felt great as soon as the numbness wore off. The assistant was very sweet and explained the process every step of the way. Thank you for saving my tooth. BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE EVERY

Patient Review By John S
The whole experience was unexpectedly easy. Needing a root canal is kind of spooky, maybe a friendlier name would be in order. Thanks for making it comfortable.

Patient Review By Michelle N
I don't know if you can say this about a root canal, but it was a great experience. From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease and made to feel like I was the only person there. The staff is phenomenal and Dr. Brown needs to teach classes on patient care. Thank you for making a scary experience into a nice one.

From start to finish everything was handled in a very friendly, relaxed, professional manner. Endodontics are procedures I hope to never have again, but if I must I'll choose Peachtree Endodontics.

Dr Brown did an excellent job! He was very concerned about doing the required work in steps to ensure proper healing & minimal pain. I was very anxious about having dental work done and the doctor and staff were very caring. Due to the detail put forth by Dr. Brown I actually was able to just have the root canal done and my dentist said there was no need for a crown! I was thrilled! Highly recommend Dr Brown and his staff.
