Root Canal Services in Augusta GA

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 experiencing any of these symptoms including tooth pain call us today.

For more information about our practice or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ngoh, Dr. Sarno or Dr. Purcell, call our office in Augusta, GA at Endodontics Office in Augusta 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.

Who knew you could enjoy going to get a root canal? Everything is top-notch, from the opening phone call to leaving the office. Each individual component - the staff, the office, the doctor - is wonderful by themselves, but mixed together, they are fantastic. If you need any kind of endodontic work done, this is where you want to have it done.

Never would you think that a root canal could be so pleasant! This team acknowledged my pain, got me into the office as quickly as possible, and worked to complete a procedure that would make me painfree in a matter of hours. At my request Dr. Ngoh prayed with me prior to my treatment. Everything went so smoothly and quickly, I know God and Dr. Ngoh are on very good terms. If you have to go through a root canal, you could not be in better hands.

So to try and make this as short as possible, this was by far the best experience at a Doctors office ever. I was in extreme pain from a back Molar and a front Anterior that needed a root canal, and a day after Hurricane Michael came through the August area I was in dire need of relief. I just knew there would be no dental offices open. So I called and they got me in and I had two root canal procedures done. The staff even stayed late until my procedures were complete and I could not thank them enough for accommodating my dire need for an Endodontist. I can't thank the entire staff again for their fast, courteous and professional service! To anyone that needs a great Endodontist, Dr. Ngoh gets my highest recommendation!
