Root Canal

Root Canal Dentistry in Peachtree City, GA

Root canal therapy is a method of treatment used to preserve a patient’s natural tooth. No one wants to lose a tooth. Once a tooth is lost, replacement options are often stressful and expensive. At Vassey Dental Partners in Peachtree City, GA, we have your root canal treatment needs covered in a friendly and caring atmosphere.

The natural cavity located at the center of a tooth is referred to as the “root canal.” Soft tissue (pulp) and the tooth’s nerve are inside the root canal. If this area of the tooth becomes damaged, debris or bacteria can enter, resulting in an infection, or in more severe cases, an abscess. An abscessed tooth is a very serious condition where the tooth is full of pus with the infection expanding beyond the root of the tooth. This condition must be treated promptly to prevent the infection from migrating to other parts of the body. If you have an abscessed tooth, we offer emergency root canal dentistry to solve the issue.

Our Root Canal Treatment Services

Root canal therapy may require more than one visit. Initially, an x-ray will be taken to check the tooth and roots for indications of any infection in the surrounding areas.

Root canal therapy is offered with the aid of sedation dentistry, which can calm and relax the patient. Following the application of any sedation, the dentist creates an access hole into the tooth. Then, any tissue that is infected plus the damaged nerve and other debris are removed from the tooth. The root canal is then cleaned and polished thoroughly. In order to prevent the entrance of food and saliva between dental appointments, the tooth will be sealed temporarily.

Next, a biocompatible rubber compound called gutta percha is used to fill up the root canal. A filling is placed on the tooth to cover the access hole created at the start of treatment, or a dental crown is placed on the tooth to provide added strength.

Root canal dentistry has a bad reputation for being a painful procedure. The procedure itself is often no more painful than having a dental filling. The pain and discomfort come from the actual infection itself. Patients will experience significant relief after undergoing root canal therapy. Root canals have a success rate of 95% and allow people to preserve their natural teeth.

Great dentist ! Our family has been coming to Vassey for 10 years.

I am very anxious when I go to a new dentist. My teeth are sensitive and I’ve had a few unpleasant experiences in the past. Oh my gosh this office was amazing. Every single person from check in to checkout was pleasant and professional. Kellie cleaned my teeth and was thorough but gentle, kept asking if I was okay. She did a great job. Dr Harrah and Michelle are very personable. They showed me the X-rays and pictures of my teeth and explained what they saw and what he recommended. I was at the dentist and they made me feel relaxed and comfortable!! Wow. What a well managed, professional office.

A very professionally run but close knit and almost family relationships for my wife and myself. Came here when our long time dentist retired and he moved his practice to this one. Russell is my dentist and a good friend. Highly recommend this practice

amazing staff, I absolutely love Dr. Konwick! She has amazing bedside/patient manners. She is super gentle and makes you feel at ease. I was always hesitant to go to a dental appointment until I had Dr, Konwick work on two cavities I had. Vassey Dental has a great location, they are super gracious, and the office is always incredibly clean. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. If you are looking for a dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Konwick and Vassey Dental Partners.

I never enjoyed going to the dentist, until I walked into Vassey Dental Partners. Every step of the way, you’re greeted with smiles, kindness and care. My new patient appointment was extremely thorough and not rushed. Morgan was awesome! And Dr. Fowlkes was took time to explain everything. My FIRST positive experience as a dental patient.
