Have you been having pain in your tooth every time you eat something that is hot or cold? If so, it may be that you have an infected tooth that needs a root canal treatment? Whenever you are experiencing tooth pain, you will want to come in and see us at Dental Specialty Associates. When a tooth is infected, or there is another reason for tooth pain, it is important that the problem is diagnosed and treated early by our endodontists, Dr. Cho and Dr. Foroughi. This way you will not have to deal with infection traveling to other parts of your mouth, or even to other parts of your body. When you come to our practice with a complaint of dental pain, our dentist will make sure to thoroughly assess the specific reason for your oral pain. If you do indeed have a tooth that is seriously infected or decayed, you may need to have a Downtown Manhattan root canal to save the life of the tooth.
When a tooth has decay or infection in the pulp of the tooth, the only way the tooth can be saved is with a root canal treatment. If a root canal treatment is not performed, the tooth will either need to be extracted or will fall out eventually on its own. However, whenever there is infection in the mouth, it is very dangerous to leave it untreated. This is because infection in a tooth can lead to a more general oral infection, and even lead to infection in other parts of the body. Infection from the mouth can easily travel through the bloodstream and affect other parts of your body. Additionally, the sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the greater chance it has of saving the tooth. For these reasons, you will want to have a Downtown Manhattan root canal at the earliest possible time.
At our dental practice, our dental specialist will perform your Downtown Manhattan root canal. Our office is totally state-of-the-art, and you can be sure that you will receive a root canal treatment that is performed using the very latest equipment and procedures. The safety and comfort of our patients is always our number one priority. You can be sure that you will be able to remain perfectly comfortable during the entire root canal procedure. Root canal treatment is generally effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. During the root canal procedure, the pulp of the tooth will be removed and the entire tooth and root canal system will be cleaned and sealed. Our dentist will be able to give you specific information on your individual case, once you are seen at our dental practice.
