If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp at its center. When this is the case, you should visit us at Dental Specialty Associates because you may need to have a root canal procedure at our dental office in New York NY where Dr. Cho and Dr. Foroughi specialize in endodontics.
Our dentist will assess your individual situation and determine where exactly your tooth pain is coming from. Sometimes tooth pain is simply the result of a piece of food that is lodged between one tooth and another. Other times, tooth pain can be caused by a tooth that has a cavity in it, which can be easily filled. If you have any of these dental problems, we can help you with it. If at our dental office in New York NY it is determined that you have a tooth which needs to have a root canal procedure performed on it, this can be done, as well. When a tooth is damaged in its interior and does not receive a root canal treatment, the tooth will eventually fall out on its own. A root canal procedure is needed to save the tooth, in this case. Once a tooth falls out, it will need to be replaced with either a dental bridge or a dental implant in order to maintain the structural integrity of the rest of your teeth. It is always best to save the tooth whenever possible. Our dentist can perform a root canal procedure while you remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. During the root canal procedure, all infected pulp will be removed from the tooth, the entire tooth and root canal system will be cleaned and sealed, and the tooth may get a permanent crown at a later date.
If you are experiencing any type of tooth pain, we urge you to visit us at our dental office in New York NY for diagnosis and treatment.
