Root Canal Therapy Fort Mill, SC

Permanent teeth are meant to remain permanently inside the mouth. Teeth are made up of a thick outer shell called enamel, and it is the hardest substance found in the human body. However, even with these characteristics, the teeth are not invincible. Trauma and injury occur to many people involved in sports and recreational activities, accidents, and random occurrences. Dental decay also occurs, causing a deep cavity or infection inside the tooth. When any of these occur and damage is done to the pulp (network of blood vessels and nerves) inside the tooth, root canal therapy is needed.

Root canal therapy is not painful – infected teeth are painful. Many, many people avoid having a root canal procedure done because they are afraid of how much it will hurt. However, what you need to understand is that it is not the procedure that hurts! An infected tooth is extremely painful because the infection is attacking the roots and nerves of your tooth. If left untreated, the pain will become unbearable and the damage too great to save your tooth.

Root canal therapy is done under local anesthesia (or complete sedation if needed). The procedure involves opening the tooth, removing the damaged pulp, cleaning out the infection, treating the tooth with antibiotics, filling the tooth, and then sealing it to protect against further damage.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, Dr. Kavi Sagunarthy and Dr. Jennifer Mokris are here to help promote your oral health. We understand how sensitive an infected tooth is and how painful it can seem to have any work done on it. However, treating an infected tooth is absolutely essential for it to remain inside your mouth. It is also essential to treat an infected tooth as soon as possible so that the infection does not spread to your neighboring teeth and gums. At Gold Hill Dentistry we are committed to providing the most compassionate care throughout all of your needed dental treatment. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment. Your oral health is our top priority, and we are here to provide you with excellent and comfortable care.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
