Root Canal Treatment | Mobile AL

What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million are performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. The dental pulp is a collection of blood vessels and nerve tissue that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and/or gums.

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend root canal treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. Root canal treatment removes this injured pulp, and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Root canal treatment has an excellent success rate!

We make every effort to insure your comfort during treatment. We use local anesthesia for all our patients. In addition, if you desire, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia (“laughing gas”). You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you can return to your normal routine very soon thereafter.

Endodontic Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.

What happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your general dentist. You should contact their office shortly after we complete our treatment. They will schedule for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks. Your general dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for our patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Patient Review by GEORGE D

All of the staff was very friendly with a smile. The doctor and nurse was excellent since, I do not like needles but my time there was no pain. I felt very no pain doing the procedure or had any pain after the procedure was completed. I would return if I had to.

Patient Review by Michele Y

This was my first root canal and I was terrified and in horrible pain when I walked into the office. Not only was I pain free when I walked out, I was extraordinarily well taken care of! I would recommend this office to anyone and will be back for the one additional treatment that I still need. I can not imagine any better care or treatment than what I received. I am even driving 3+ hours for treatment here.

Patient Review by Kim S

We will only go to Dr.Morgan for all endodontic I care, he is the absolute best in all of southern Alabama and I recommend him over and above everyone else! I have heard similar good things about his partner as well. I made the mistake of trying someone else bc I had an very urgent need but that was a mistake I will never make again, even if the wait list is long bc he is worth the wait! Speaking of waiting, I have never waited to see the doctor, they are all very prompt and respectful of the patients time and they stick to their scheduling so you are in and out of there with little to no pain. They give the best care!

Patient Review by John W

Best experience imaginable. Great staff, treatment, and completely painless. they are world class, friendly, and care about your comfort and treatment. Highly recommended, and I will never go anywhere else if I need another root canal (which I hope I won't). With BCBS was very reasonable and a superb value.

Patient Review by John M

I arrived somewhat apprehensive of the procedure. Dr. Manolakis and her assistant quickly and painlessly performed a root canal on me. If I should ever require a similar procedure, I shall return to this practice. As an added benefit, she and her assistant sing beautifully!

Patient Review by Mandy H

Everyone in this office deserves a gold medal. The kindness and sympathy exhibited towards me went above and beyond the norm. I came in feeling miserable from weeks of discomfort and they made sure I stayed comfortable from the beginning until I left their office. The doctor and staff was professional and courteous, I would give the highest recommendation and would return here if I ever needed services again.
