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.
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.

As pleasant as an experience as possible as far as root canals are concerned. I'd rather have a root canal by Dr. Morgan than go car shopping any day! Staff is friendly and I really liked the music. Thank you!

I called Dr. Morgan's office after being referred by my dentist for an evaluation. My dentist had given me antibiotics and pain meds but 5 days later I was still in excruciating pain. I called at 7:00 on a Monday morning and spoke with Denise (who by the way is awesome) who told me they could work me in that afternoon. By 7:45 she called me back and asked if I could come on in and I did. Dr. Morgan could not do anything that day but did give me a shot to relieve the pain for a few hours and placed me on stronger antibiotics. Denise rearranged a few other appointments so that they could do the root canal the next day. I am so thankful for the service I received from them. They were my answer to prayer! Dr. Morgan and his staff are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone needing endodonic treatment. Plus I love the Christian music playing in the background! You all rock!

The staff here all are very sweet and helpful. I love that when Dr Morgan is working with you, he is constantly updating you on what he is doing and will be doing next. He also continues to ask you how you are doing through the whole process. I also love that they play Christian music in the office. They also do a follow up call the day after, which is amazing. Thank you

Patient Review by Patsy R
Dr. Morgan made my pain go away! He explained the procedure to me so I knew exactly what to expect. He made sure I was comfortable. He told me to raise my hand if I needed to take a break. I took advantage of the gas, and his injections did not hurt. There were three root canals for the tooth, and the procedure was painless. I am grateful to him for saving my tooth. They even called me the next day to make sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Morgan and his wonderful assistants.

Dr. Morgan and his staff are THE BEST!They are very professional, kind, patient, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and skilled. From the cheerful way they answer the phone, how they greet you when you walk through the door, how they care for you and seat you in the chair, the soft music in the background, the warm blankets if you are cold and they even have little prepackaged/prepasted toothbrushes if you need to brush before your visit. Dr. Morgan is very skilled and knowledgeable so the root canal was virtually painless. He and his nurse made sure the surgical area was numb and that I was comfortable before beginning. ALWAYS go to a specialist. Dr. Morgan is a specialist. Awesome dentist and staff and I would recommend this dental practice to anyone. Awesome.

Patient Review by Cameronesha N
I visited Dr. Morgan for a root canal my initial visit was for a consultation and he told me my that I indeed needed a root canal treatment done. They were booked of course and my appointment for the procedure was important for me because I had graduation on Dec. 10th, They did everything thing that they could to fit me in before that time and they did. My appointment was on December 1st. The care that I received while there was phenomenal. I was so afraid of the procedure because everyone had told me how painful it would be. I am twenty two so I am kind of a baby when it comes to stuff like that. But I experienced NO pain. Just a little soreness that night after my nap but after that not a thing. I am so grateful for this office and if I need anything else done that he specializes in I will definitely go back there. I had an awesome experience.

Patient Review by Iris C
Dr. Morgan and his staff took excellent care of me throughout my root canal treatment. I was anxious at first and after hearing so many horror stories, I didn't know what to expect. I was immediately put at ease by Dr. Morgan and his staff. I will most definitely recommend Dr. Morgan to any one I know who is seeking a great endodontist.

This was a very pleasant experience; Dr. Morgan and his staff were very professional and friendly. I got a courtesy call two days later (outside of their business hours!) just to make sure I was doing okay. I loved the Christian environment!

Patient Review by Kristen D
I was dreading my root canal procedure. I went in with the many horror stories I had heard, not to mention my own self-created fears of root canals. Everyone in the office was pleasant and helped make it a virtually painless process from start to finish. They are all compassionate, knowledgeable, and obviously love what they do. Thank you all for taking such good care of me and my tooth! I will recommend you to everyone I encounter who needs an Endodontist. Keep up the great work!!

Patient Review by Kim M
Dental work is not my favorite thing! I was terrified of having this root canal because I was in so much pain. Dr. Morgan and his staff made me feel at ease at the first visit. When I went back to have the root canal done I was not as nervous. I actually feel asleep and he had to wake me to tell me that I was biting his finger. LOL I would/WILL recommend Dr. Morgan to anyone that I hear is needing a dentist/endodontist.

Patient Review by Michael H
I cannot express my gratitude enough for the excellent job the Doctor and his staff performed. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff and doctor made the root canal and enjoyable experience. No pain and the procedure took less than an hour. The Doctor and assistants work well together almost to the point that it seem like they where reading each others minds. I was amazed to see how seamless the work being performed was done. It was almost like watching an orchestra playing a melody. Simply amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Morgan. Hands down the best experience you will ever have at an Endodontist. Thank You again. Mike H.

Patient Review by Chris C
Dr. Morgan and his staff are excellent in what they do. Everyone in the office is very kind and generous to everyone who walks in. Dr. Morgan's anesthetic technique is very quick and very efficient. While I hope to never have to require their services again, if I do, Dr. Morgan and his team will be seeing me again.
