When it comes to your teeth, saving them is much more appealing than losing them. Although the teeth have a hard, outer layer, known as enamel, protecting them, they are not invincible. Teeth are living substances, and damages from decay, infection, or trauma can leave the tooth vulnerable. Treating a tooth that has been damaged is needed in order to save the tooth. However, one process that allows your tooth to be saved is also one of the most feared dental procedures – yet, it should not be. Root canal therapy is done throughout the United States, and over one million teeth are restored and saved through this dental procedure.

What Dr. Sarah Roberts wants you to understand is that root canals are not painful – infected teeth are painful! This dental procedure often gets a bad reputation because of its association with pain; yet, it is the damaged tooth that is painful, not the procedure done to save the tooth. A tooth that is infected or has received serious trauma or damage is extremely painful because the nerves and living tissues within the tooth are being affected by the infection and/or damage. If an infected or damaged tooth is allowed to fester inside the mouth, the pain will become unbearable and the damage too severe for the tooth to be saved.

Root canals are performed under anesthesia so that patients do not feel any pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. In fact, most patients feel like a new person after the procedure because the pain that they walked in with has been completely relieved! During a root canal, the tooth is opened so that the damaged pulp can be removed. The infection or damage will be extracted, the tooth will be treated with antibiotics, and the tooth will then be sealed so that it is protected from further damage. At Crabapple Dental, we proudly offer sedation dentistry for patients who need extra assistance calming their nerves before and during the appointment.

Dr. Roberts and her entire dental staff are pleased to offer the highest standard in dentistry at Crabapple Dental in Alpharetta, Georgia. If you have a tooth that has been damaged, is infected, or is causing you any pain, please do not suffer any longer. We are here to help alleviate your dental pain and restore your oral health.

Kim B.

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
