Restore Damaged Teeth

For A Healthy Smile

Many patients come in wanting to fix the look of their teeth, but rarely do they think about inside the tooth. Only when an infection starts to spread or pain radiates from the tooth do patients seek the help of a dentist. Root canal treatment can help repair and save the tooth from further infections and decay. Having a root canal can help teeth prone to an infection last a lifetime.

At Smile Pleasant Hill, we perform root canals with the most advanced technology for  procedures that are as painless as possible. Dr. Kinser and our team deliver high-quality, compassionate care, so patients can feel comfortable. Our Lilburn dentist offers a wide range of dental services that help patients put their best smiles forward. Contact our dental office to schedule root canal treatment today.

Benefits Of Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is an internal endodontic treatment procedure performed when a tooth becomes infected or inflamed. Inside each tooth, there is a soft tissue called pulp. When this part of the tooth becomes infected it can be incredibly painful, and if left untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of the jaw and mouth, leading to greater complications. It’s important to contact us right away if your tooth causes extreme pain.

Visually Appealing Results

Root canal therapy involves the treatment of the tooth pulp or nerve to restore the functionality and aesthetic of your tooth. The treated tooth is sealed with a tooth-colored filling or crown that provides a new and beautiful appearance.

Stops The Spread Of Infection

During a root canal, the bacteria causing a toothache or tooth decay is promptly removed. With the bacteria gone, the previously infected tooth is now clean and disease-free, which prevents the spread of bacteria to other teeth and even your jaw.

Helps Overall Oral Health

Tooth decay can lead to other health problems down the line, including heart disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal distress, and dementia. Getting root canal treatment from our experienced dentist at Smile Pleasant Hill can help boost oral health and therefore overall health.
