Root Canals

root canal dentist macon gaRoot Canal Therapy

When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected as a result of dental disease or trauma, our doctors may recommend root canal therapy. During a root canal procedure, a small opening is made in the crown of the tooth so that the infected nerve and tissues can be removed and the roots of the teeth can be disinfected and sealed. Following a root canal procedure, the tooth is restored with a crown to protect it from breakage.

Save Your Teeth

A root canal is usually the recommended procedure to save a tooth that has become infected, rather than removing it. By having root canal treatment, the tooth can continue to support its role to the body by remaining in position to support the jaw bone structures, bite balance and proper chewing. If the tooth were removed, this functionality would typically have to be replaced with a "false" tooth via a dental bridge or implant, which are more costly procedures.

In some cases, your dentist may recommend that a root canal specialist, or Endodontist, perform the root canal procedure.

At Dental Care Center, we have assembled a team of both general dentists and dental specialists to offer full service care to our patients. If your dentist recommends that a Endodontist perform a root canal procedure, we can accommodate your needs right here in our own facility. This allows both doctors to communicate efficiently regarding your care.

Prevention is the key - don't wait until you have a problem to schedule your dental examination. Contact Us to schedule a thorough checkup today.
