Who Is a Candidate for Root Canal Treatment?
A deep crack in your tooth, an untreated cavity, or physical trauma can all cause infection in the pulp of your tooth. The symptoms of an infected tooth are tooth or jaw pain, a pimple-like lesion on the gums (near the tooth), and discoloration. If the tooth isn't treated, further oral damage may occur, especially if the infection spreads to nearby teeth and into the surrounding jawbone tissue. In some instances, the infection could enter the circulatory system and affect your general health, making it important to get professional care promptly. During your dental appointment, our Morrow, GA MINT dental providers can assess your symptoms and let you know a root canal is necessary for addressing the oral condition and saving your tooth.
What Happens During a Root Canal?
To begin your appointment, you will relax in one of our luxurious massaging treatment chairs and be given a pair of Beats headphones and stylish MINT sunglasses. We want you to feel at ease while you undergo treatment so your doctor will help you select the appropriate type of sedation for your root canal therapy. Patients usually prefer oral-conscious or nitrous oxide gas for sedation to keep them comfortable during the procedure. During an endodontic procedure, your doctor will carefully remove the infected pulp using cutting-edge equipment and techniques. After this, the empty tooth will be thoroughly sterilized to remove any lingering debris. Once your tooth is cleaned, it will be filled with a special material to seal and protect it. Often, a custom-made crown will be cemented over the treated tooth to protect it.
Root Canal Treatment Aftercare
If you have elected certain methods of sedation dentistry, we may require you to arrange for a friend or family member to take you home. Your mouth and lower face might be swollen or sensitive for a while so your dentist might write you a prescription for pain-relieving medication. You should make a follow-up appointment around six months after the treatment. Our team will perform an exam to ensure the infection is gone and that your mouth has healed. After that, you should schedule twice-yearly cleanings at MINT dentistry in Morrow, GA.
The MINT Commitment
A member of our team will discuss treatment costs with you during your consultation so that we can find a plan that meets your budget. If you have insurance, we can contact your carrier to understand the specific coverage of your policy. If you do not have insurance, MINT dentistry accepts most methods of payment. Our team can also talk with you about special patient financing, which could make it easier to afford the dental care you need.
