Root Canal Therapy in Augusta GA

Root Canal Treatment in Augusta

What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

If you are experience any of these symptoms including tooth pain call us today.

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

What happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Never any fun to have to have a root canal, but Dr. Ngoh and his staff always put me at ease and make it as comfortable as possible! Wonderful office and staff and I couldn't ask for the procedure to go any better!

My root canal therapy experience with Dr. Ngoh and his office staff rates as one of the best I've ever encountered. The experience of encountering such a professional, courteous, and caring staff is only superseded by the Christian atmosphere so aptly led by Dr. Ngoh. I felt totally at ease and comforted, especially when Dr. Ngoh prefaced the procedure by letting me know that the staff had just been in prayer, and prayed especially for me. Although my deep roots posed some extra challenges, he was reassuring, talking me through each step, and making sure that I was comfortable. He genuinely seemed to care more about my comfort than just completing the root canal procedure. Dr. Ngho and his staff have my deepest thanks and appreciation! I will also pray for them as they fulfill a very special calling they execute reflecting Christ with so much grace.

I would definitely recommend seeing Dr. Ngoh for root canal therapy. He and his staff have exceeded my expectations of a dentist's office. Hopefully, I won't need to have another root canal, but if I did, I would return back to Dr. Ngoh
