    Dr. Don Jones Reviewed by Kimberly M. Facebook User
    Dr. Jones and his staff are awesome!! I am so thankful I found a dentist that is concerned for the welfare of his patients and willing to take mercury out of fillings with the correct protocol recommended by many. The knowledge and High Tech State of the Art Dentistry is comforting as well as the relaxed friendly atmosphere. Thanks so much worth the drive for my entire family.
  • Dentist Social Circle - Five Star Reviews by Anonymous This was my second visit to your office and I was skeptical at first because I have been through a lot of not so good dentists, so after my current insurance provider dropped my last dentist I was seriously considering not going to the dentist anymore( I know bad idea!!) But then my wife found social circle dental. She went first to get a crown and really loved the whole staff. Dr. Jones is a perfectionist and will get your teeth looking and feeling good. He does not employ pressure sales like so many of my former dentists have done. He will simply tell you what needs to be done and will let you the patient decide. All of the office staff and the girls are great!! So far I love it and would highly recommend social circle dental!!

  • Dentist Social Circle - Five Star Reviews by Julie C. Dr. Jones is a dentist that cares about his clients. He believes in saving your teeth. Sometimes that is a job. He believes a dentist should put the child first and not the insurance company. With agencies, they dont believe that you should do a root canal and put a crown on a tooth instead, pull the tooth and get a false tooth to replace it. That should have gone out with the horse and buggy. Nevertheless, thank goodness, there are still good dentist like Dr. Jones, who work with his patience. Making sure, he gives them the best possible care he can. ~ Julie C.

Root Canals

Dr Jones and his staff are wonderful! I drive over 4 hrs just to have them take care of me and the family. He is great!
Contrary to popular myths, the root canal procedure is similar in many ways to a standard dental filling. When we place a dental filling, we begin by removing the decayed tooth material, and then we use a biocompatible filling to replace it. When we perform a root canal, we remove decayed tooth structure as well as infected or damaged pulp (soft tissue in the tooth's center). Then we sterilize the canal and use biocompatible materials to fill it and restore the tooth. This procedure takes a little longer than a filling, because there is more damaged material to be removed, and more space to be filled.

Depending on the situation, Dr. Jones may treat your tooth here in our office, or refer you to a specialist. Sometimes the canals are difficult to see, making it hard to tell if all of the infection has been removed. Dr. Jones will not risk your health by using "guesswork." He works with an experienced specialist who has special tools and magnification, for reliable results in these complex cases.

Whether your root canal procedure is done here or at our specialist's office, the area will be thoroughly numbed for your comfort. Most patients feel nothing at all. Some say that they can feel the doctor working on their tooth, but it is not painful. Actually, a root canal procedure can stop the pain of chronic toothaches, abscessed teeth, and sensitivity.

We provide prescription antibiotics as a precaution and give you pain medication in case there is any soreness. After the root canal, we'll need to put a crown on that tooth, to make sure it doesn't fracture. Most patients tell us they were surprised to find out it really is like getting a filling.

Even though we make sure the procedure is comfortable, we understand that nobody wants a root canal. That is one of the reasons to come in for regular checkups. We watch for any signs of problems, so we can get them taken care of before you are in pain, and before you need a root canal.

You might think you would know if your tooth was decayed enough for the nerve in the middle to become damaged. However, sometimes the decay is behind an old crown or filling, where you don't even see it. Sometimes decay isn't the problem at all. You can have fractures in your teeth, from things like metal fillings or old injuries, and never even know it.

If your teeth are causing you pain (or if they don't hurt, and you want to keep it that way) call Social Circle Dental at (770) 464-1900 and schedule an appointment.
