Root Canals

Root Canals Buford, GA

Root Canals

When a tooth becomes infected, it can be very painful and the health of the tooth is jeopardized. Root canals offer one of the only general dentistry treatments to remove the infection from inside the canals of the tooth and save it from extraction. At Buford Family Dental, Dr. Patel and the rest of our dental team can help treat infected teeth with root canal therapy that can stop the pain and help retain your precious natural teeth.

The inner canals of your teeth are the most vulnerable to decay and infection. The softer pulp inside the tooth can quickly be eaten away by decay, which is why it is protected by the tough enamel and outer shell of tooth material. When bacteria find a way inside the tooth, it can quickly lead to infection. This can cause abscesses or inflammation that press on the nerves inside the canals, causing pain and discomfort. Once this occurs, the tooth begins to die and the only way to save it is to remove the infected pulp and damaged nerves through a root canal.

Root Canals Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

Sometimes the first and only sign of an infected tooth is pain. Other symptoms can include discolorations and bad breath. But pain is what often spurs a call to the dentist to get relief. Many people cringe when they hear they need a root canal, but it is not a procedure to fear. It is the quickest and most effective way to stop the pain while preserving the tooth. The technology we use at Buford Family Dental allows our team to expediently remove the diseased tooth material, disinfect the inner canals of the tooth and repack/reseal it. Once the infection is gone, so is the severe pain. We put a dental crown on the tooth to protect it from damage and your tooth is almost as good as new again.

If you have severe tooth pain, contact Buford Family Dental right away. We can stop the pain and protect your smile with root canal therapy or other treatments to repair your teeth.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
