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 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 or Dr. Sarno, 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.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I was very nervous about having to see an Endodontist. From the fist phone call to the final walk out the door the staff treated me with kindness and made my experience as comfortable as possible. From a friendly smile to a blanket and pillow the total office is very calming and relaxing. Dr Ngoh explained everything to me before , during and after treatment. I was always under the impression that a root canal was going to be uncomfortable to say the least. The procedure was painless and the best part no more toothache. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Ngoh to all of my family and friends.

Dr. Ngoh saved my tooth and for that I am so thankful!!! My niece, who is a dental hygienist and lives in Augusta, told me to please see Dr. Ngoh before I made a decision on who would perform my root canal. She informed me that he had the most up-to-date computer technology and equipment. I drove two hours to have this procedure and am so glad that I trusted my care to this doctor. From the moment I sat in the chair, I was at peace (because I sensed I was in the most capable hands possible.) During the procedure, with state of the art technology beside my chair, he was able to clearly navigate the procedure. I knew if this tooth could be saved, he would be the doctor to do it! And he did. Thanks to the staff and Dr. Ngoh for giving me a peaceful experience in a stressful situation.
