Root Canal Therapy Marietta GA

There are few things more painful than an infected tooth. Ask anyone who has dealt with a severe toothache, and he will tell you that the pain is agonizing and unbearable. It is the type of pain that will interrupt your life and affect everything you do.

An infected tooth, one that has severe tooth decay that reaches the inner chambers, will experience pain because the nerve endings inside the tooth will repeatedly be attacked. What you need to know about tooth decay is that it will not remedy itself. In addition to the extreme pain, swelling, abscesses, blood poisoning, and even death can occur. Once infection reaches the inside of a tooth, the tooth will die without medical intervention. If you notice any signs of tooth infection or have a toothache, you need to make an appointment with your dentist to discuss root canal treatment.

Root Canal Therapy

Because every tooth is an individual living feature, it can die. When a tooth dies, a whole host of problems will arise in the mouth. Tooth extraction is an “easy” option because it will remove the problematic tooth; however, tooth extraction is not always the best option. When a tooth is missing from the mouth, the neighboring teeth lose necessary support over time. Without support, these teeth will fall out or need to be extracted, leaving an incomplete smile that you may be embarrassed by. Root canal therapy is a procedure done to save the tooth and restore your smile.

During a root canal procedure, the dentist removes the infected inner layers of the tooth and disinfects the inside of the tooth. This removes and kills any lingering bacteria so that they will not continue to cause damage. Once the tooth has been treated, the dentist will seal off the tooth to prevent bacteria from entering. Sometimes, a custom dental crown will be placed over the tooth to provide extra support and protection.

The number one misconception of root canal therapy is that it is a painful procedure. This is absolutely not true! It is the infection and damage that cause pain, and a root canal is a procedure that alleviates your discomfort.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
