The root canals inside your teeth are the live portion containing the pulp and nerves. When decay or infection reaches these inner areas, it can cause severe pain and jeopardize the health of your tooth. The treatment to remove the diseased or infected portion of the interior tooth is referred to as a root canal. This is the best general dentistry treatment to stop the pain and save a tooth from extraction. At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we offer effective root canals that can relieve infected tooth pain and protect your smile from tooth loss.

Infected teeth can be caused when bacteria or decay find a pathway inside the tooth. A crack or broken tooth can allow decay or bacteria inside, causing inflammation and infection. When this occurs, the nerve can be impacted, causing intense tooth pain. Once the inside of the tooth is infected, the pulp and nerve root must be removed to stop the pain and infection. This process is a root canal, which removes the diseased tooth material and disinfects the interior of the tooth.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

Root canals are often associated with pain, but the treatment is not the cause of pain, but the best way to stop severe toothaches from infected teeth. Once the infection is treated and the nerves removed, the source of the pain is gone. The tooth is repacked and sealed as part of the root canal process, protecting it from further infection. Since a significant portion of the inner tooth is removed, the tooth can be weakened. A dental crown is added to protect the tooth from damage and to give it additional strength.

If you have a severely infected tooth, root canal therapy can stop the pain and may be the only way to save it from extraction. Contact Pure Smiles Dentistry today to schedule an exam and learn more about how a root canal can treat and save your infected tooth.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
