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.

Literally the best dental experience I’ve ever had. EVERYONE was so warm & welcoming from check in to check out. Dr. Fowlkes along with his assistant Morgan made me feel so at home. Dr. Fowlkes was very thorough & made sure I understood everything that was going on. The after hours care is also just so amazing. lm looking forward to bringing my whole family back! I’m honestly grateful for this dentist office, I wish I had found them sooner.

Where can I start.. This was the best dental visit I've had since covid and what impressed me most was the fact that I wasn't uncomfortable with the fact that hadn't been to the dentist office and I felt at ease. Morgan was absolutely The best and Dr Fowkles wasn't so bad either.. just kidding it was my first visit at this office and I am very thankful that my Dr was very knowledgeable and will guide me to better teeth! Also it was my hubby first time there as well and he was very grateful for Chelsea and Dr. Lane! He said they made him very comfortable. Highly Recommend!

Heather S

My hygienist was amazing! I have so much anxiety at the dentist. She kept talking to me & kept my mind off of it. So much so, I asked all of my appointments be with her in the future. She didn’t hurt me at all and made me feel more relaxed than I have at the dentist in years!
