Root Canal Therapy

Alpharetta Root Canals

Root canal therapy is a restorative dental procedure that has helped many people save teeth that have become infected. Before dentists had the knowledge that we have now, if a tooth was infected or had signs of decay, it was automatically extracted from the mouth. While this solved the problem of the infected tooth, it left other issues for dentists and patients to deal with. Today, many teeth are able to be saved through root canal therapy, and Dr. Sarah Roberts of Crabapple Dental is the dentist to trust in Alpharetta for painless, effective root canals.

Any time a tooth has severe pain, tenderness or swelling, or any sort of abscess on the gum line, it needs to be evaluated by a dentist. The most common reason for these symptoms is that a tooth has an infection or has decay in its root. If this is left untreated, the tissues surrounding the tooth will also become infected and easily spread throughout the rest of the mouth. During root canal therapy, the pulp of the tooth, nerves, bacteria, and infection are all removed from the tooth. The space is cleaned thoroughly and is then filled with medicated material to restore the tooth to its full function. This procedure is relatively simple, yet it can save patients from losing a tooth.

If you have a tooth that is painful, or if you are simply looking for a dentist to trust in the Alpharetta area, Dr. Sarah Roberts of Crabapple Dental is the name to turn to. Root canal therapy is not a painful procedure, but for those who have anxiety over dental work, sedation is an option to help patients relax.

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
