Save Your Natural Tooth with a Root Canal in Decatur & Midtown Atlanta

There are times when tooth decay goes beyond what can be easily addressed with a filling. Cracks and chips in teeth can lead to deep decay that reaches all the way to the soft tissue, or pulp, in the roots of teeth. When this occurs, dangerous abscesses can develop, especially if the condition goes untreated. In most cases, patients will experience significant pain and other symptoms. When you partner with the caring and experienced dental professionals at the offices of Dr. Terrance L. Jeter & Associates, you can treat the pain, restore oral health, and hopefully salvage your natural tooth with a root canal.

About Root Canal Procedure

During a root canal procedure, the infection will be removed, the remaining tooth will be sterilized, any gaps left behind will be filled, and a temporary crown will be placed on the tooth. When a custom crown is ready, it will replace the temporary crown during a second visit to restore full function and protect against further decay or damage. While these procedures are underway, patients will receive an adequate anesthetic to maintain comfort throughout. Most patients will experience incredible relief afterward, additionally, medication is often given to maintain comfort and clear any remaining infection.
