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 warm and caring atmosphere was beyond anything I have ever experienced. My story is long with 3 visits because my crown fell off a week before my root canal was completed. They got me in as soon as I called about losing my crown. Today my root canal was finished. And I got the best of care and I would recommend Doctor Brown to any one

Patient Review By Patricia (Trish) L
On 2/18/17 (which was a Saturday) I went in for a consultation with Dr. Brown for a root canal. Dr. Brown took my medical condition into consideration when he discussed my options. He was willing to do a root canal but felt the risk would outway the reward. I do appreciate his honesty! He didn't stop there he is going to consult with my dentist and an oral surgeon to see what can be done to help me moving forward. He said he would have liked to be my hero and save my tooth.....but to me he is my hero because he was concerned for me in my health situation. So I want to thank his staff that was compassionate and kind and I want to thank Dr. Brown for his understanding of my disease. Dr. Brown you are my hero!

I want to make sure that Dr. Brown knows that I kept my appointment because of JENNIFER. I wanted to see Dr. Brown because of his expertise, but MetLife tried to encourage me to see an in-network endodontist. Jennifer helped me to navigate the world of dental insurance and helped me to understand why I should see Dr. Brown instead of looking elsewhere. I can't thank you all enough!
