Root Canal Therapy 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.

For more information about our practice or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ngoh, call our office in Augusta, GA at Augusta Office Phone Number 706-869-9117.

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.

Dr. Ngoh and his staff are wonderful! It was such an inviting atmosphere from the time that I walked through the door. I was so anxious about the fact that I needed a root canal, when I was finished it was like I had just had a filling done (you always hear such horror stories about root canals) I was treated like I was a Queen and felt as though I was in a spa instead of a dental office. All of them made me feel very special and that I was their top priority. I would highly recommend anyone to go see Dr. Ngoh!!

From the moment I walked into this office it was amazing! The staff treated me like I was their only patient. They remembered my name and details I shared as far as I mentioned my grandson was coming and she even remembered that detail... those little things mean a lot! I have nothing but praise for Dr. Ngoh! Very thorough, compassionate and took into consideration the back problem I have and helped all he could while working on my teeth. His nurse Bria was so calming and the office itself just took away any fears I had. Thank you all for making one of the scariest times in my life be one of the best. I would return and have already recommended them to two other friends.

Amazing! From the front desk service all the way to Dr. Ngoh! I'm a professional development trainer at a local hospital, so I understand leadership, management, and customer service very well. Dr. Ngoh's office is the best I've ever seen. This was an incredible experience. The root canal we painless. Dr. Ngoh and his staff were professional and reassuring through the whole process. The office is gorgeous and clean. Even the restroom is better than a five-star hotel—no exaggeration. If you need a root canal, this is the place to be.

Everyone here is so lovely! I hate that this is the type of establishment that you really don't want to return to (I got a root canal!), but I would go back here in an instant, if it was needed. Just as someone else mentioned, it is like a spa! The environment is so relaxing, you are offered refreshments, blankets, anything you need to make your experience more comfortable. Dr. Ngoh is very passionate about what he does. He was kind enough to call me after my initial evaluation to make sure I understood why I needed a root canal ( I was a bit upset that I received this news). His explanation and understanding made me better understand everything. On top of all this, this is a place of God and I love that! God bless everyone at Augusta Endo 🙂
