If you are in need for root canal treatment in Marietta, you can trust our experienced dentist at Engineered Smiles. There are few things more painful than an infected tooth. When tooth decay advances to the point of infecting the nerves in the pulp, serious complications can develop. In addition to the swelling and pain from an infection, when left untreated, it could lead to blood poisoning and, in extreme cases, death. If you notice the signs of tooth infection, you may wish to make an appointment with our Marietta dentist to discuss root canal and other possible treatment options.

Pain and discomfort alone can cause a patient to request the removal of the infected tooth. However, an extraction is not always the best option. A variety of problems can crop up when a tooth is missing. Whenever possible, our East Cobb root canal expert will try to save the natural tooth. Root canal therapy at our Marietta dentist office is a time-tested general dentistry procedure that eliminates pain and preserves the tooth.

During the root canal procedure our skilled Marietta dentist removes the infected nerve, cleans out and disinfecting the root canal. Once all infectious material has been removed and the infection is under control, the root canal is filled and sealed off to prevent bacteria from entering the area. The remaining part of the cavity is then filled with an appropriate filling material.

Root Canal Therapy Offers Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

There is a myth that root canal therapy is painful, when in fact, it is the infection and swelling that causes pain and discomfort. The tooth becomes ultra-sensitive as decay attacks the nerve. Necrotic tissue becomes infected and produces swelling, which further impacts the dying nerves.

Without intervention of a root canal therapy specialist, acids produced from the interaction of the bacteria and body’s defense system begin to dissolve the bone in the area. There is also the chance that infection may enter the bloodstream, causing more serious health problems.

With Marietta root canal therapy, the tooth can be saved. Antibiotics may be required to treat and eliminate the infection. Swelling is usually reduced within a few days. The pain is relieved after the nerves are removed, although there may be some soreness from the swelling.

Do not ignore the pain of an infected tooth. If you experience tooth pain and/or have swelling, contact Engineered Smiles in Marietta right away. We will schedule an emergency appointment with our East Cobb root canals dental expert to begin treating the condition right away. Relief for your infected tooth is just a phone call away.

    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!

    Sanjay P.

    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
