COVID-19 Update

Pure Dental Health is dedicated to helping our community during this time. We are seeing patients for emergencies BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

We’ve made a decision based on ADA and CDC recommendations to postpone elective procedures for at least one week, however, we are still seeing patients depending on your need.

According to the association, emergency dental care include:

  • Any treatment for pain, swelling or infection
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Loose or displaced restorations

Refrain from coming in if you have:

  • A fever
  • A cough or shortness of breath
  • A history of significant chronic illness
  • A compromised immune system
  • Or if you or a family member:
    • Are considered high-risk
    • Have traveled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice
    • Have traveled in a airplane in the past two weeks
    • Have been previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
    • Have had close contact to an individual diagnosed with the COVID-19 infection

We are also scheduling virtual exams. You can meet with a dentist from your home. This service will allow you to have a virtual exam with your dentist via video call. This service should be available by 3/20/20. When calling, notify our scheduler if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment and they will take your name and number and get back with you with available times once this service is live.

We will be posting updates as we have them.

If you are experiencing pain from an infected or abscessed tooth, root canal therapy can stop the pain and restore your tooth to health. At Pure Dental Health, we offer effective root canals for our patients in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area. Our friendly, compassionate team will repair your tooth, stop the pain and ensure your comfort during the procedure in our beautiful, modern dental office in Buckhead.

When Is a root canal required?
If a tooth is damaged, severely decayed or has undergone multiple dental procedures, the interior of the tooth can become infected. The center, or root canal, contains the pulp and nerve root of the tooth. Trauma, decay, large fillings and other factors can irritate the nerve root, causing pain, infection and abscesses. This can endanger the health of the tooth and your health. Root canal therapy can remove the infected pulp and damaged nerve root to save the tooth and stop the pain.
What does a root canal entail?
When a tooth is infected or damaged within the interior root canal, it can be necessary to remove the infected pulp and nerve. During a root canal procedure, the endodontist removes the pulp and nerve within this interior chamber. Once disinfected, the tooth is repacked with sterile material and sealed. The tooth can be vulnerable to damage due to the weakened structure, so a dental crown is placed over the tooth for protection.
I heard root canals are painful. Is that true?
Root canal therapy has often been associated with pain, but it is not the procedure that is painful. The infection is what causes pain when it presses on the nerve in the center of the tooth. In truth, root canals are not painful; they stop the pain. The discomfort level is comparable to having a cavity filled. For those with dental anxiety during dental treatments, Pure Dental Health offers sedation dentistry options to help you relax while we perform your root canal.
What will happen if I choose not to have a root canal?
Unfortunately, if you have an infected tooth that does not get treatment, it could be in jeopardy of extraction. The infection could also spread, putting you at risk for other health issues. Root canals are often the only way to stop the pain of an infected tooth and save it from extraction or loss.
What can I expect when I come to Pure Dental Health for my treatment?
Our team, headed by Dr. Justin Scott, is one of the best dental teams in the greater Atlanta area. Not only do we provide excellent, quality oral care, we strive to make every one of our patients feel relaxed and comfortable when they come to us for dental treatment. Our office is full of amenities to make your visit enjoyable, starting with valet parking and a complimentary beverage bar.

We want you to leave our office feeling like you just went to a spa, not a dental office.
