Sometimes a tooth, because it’s so infected or decayed, requires a root canal to restore it. At Crestway Park Dental in Athens, we provide gentle, caring root canal therapy to restore significantly damaged and decayed teeth. With today’s modern techniques and materials, we are able to provide a pain-free experience.Teeth with significant damage or decay may be:

• Painful when you chew or when pressure is applied
• Discolored
• Sensitive to hot and cold
• Swollen or tender (in the nearby gums)

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact our office immediately. We will do our best to help you return to optimal oral health. To avoid the necessity of a root canal, it is important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, which includes daily flossing and brushing as well as regular visits to the dentist.
