Endodontics & Root Canals
in Midtown Atlanta & Buckhead

When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected as a result of dental disease or trauma, we may recommend treatment with root canal therapy.

Endodontics & Root Canals in Midtown, Atlanta & Buckhead

During a root canal procedure, a small opening is made in the crown of the tooth so that the infected nerve and tissues can be removed and the roots of the teeth can be disinfected and sealed. Following the completion of the root canal, the tooth is restored with a crown to protect it from breakage.

In some cases, your doctor may recommend that a root canal specialist, or endodontist, perform the root canal procedure. We then work closely with the endodontist to coordinate the placement of a dental crown following root canal treatment.

Save Your Teeth!

A root canal is usually the recommended procedure to save a tooth that has become infected, rather than extraction. By having root canal treatment, the tooth can remain in position and maintain its role in supporting jaw bone structures, bite balance and proper chewing. Tooth replacement options such as a bridge, or implant and crown are more costly procedures than a single root canal and crown.

Don't Wait Until it Hurts!

Often, patients are anxious about a root canal procedure or have heard horror stories from friends and family about root canals. A root canal treatment can be as comfortable as a dental filling procedure; the key is to address the problem tooth before pain and swelling occur.

We recommend that our patients visit us every 3-6 months for a complete dental examination to help detect dental problems early and avoid painful dental issues.

I would recommend Midtown Smile Center to anyone. I was seen right away at my scheduled appointment time. The hygienist was wonderful and knowledgable. I had a small preventive procedure done and they were able to quickly contact my insurance company to get a price right away. My whole visit took less than one hour and I left with a clean mouth and pain-free. Great visit!!

I can't recommend Midtown Smile Center enough. I'm intensely phobic about the dentist and had very positive experiences with both my cleaning and fillings. I will be going back regularly and recommending them to friends and family.

This is a great practice. Everyone is so thoughtful and kind. And Dr Grayson is the best! I wouldn't dream of going to any other practice.
