Experiencing any kind of tooth pain can be difficult enough in and of itself, but if you want to alleviate your pain you will need to do more than just wait it out. If you are experiencing toothaches and pains, it is more than likely that you have a cavity. The more severe the pain, the more intense the issue is and if you are feeling sharp, nerve-like pain then you may have an infected tooth root. Here at Dental Specialty Associates, we can provide you with the Downtown Manhattan root canal treatment that you need in order to get better. With specially attuned endodontics tailored to meet your needs, our endodontist can effectively treat the infection and have you feeling better in no time.
A root canal infection is when the pulp or root of a tooth becomes infected with decay. This can happen if the root of the tooth develops a cavity or if a cavity elsewhere in the tooth worsens and eventually spreads to infect the tooth root. This can be extremely painful, and you may experience aches and pains both while you are using your mouth as well as when you are not. Typically, you may feel sharp pains whenever pressure is applied or removed, which usually happens when biting or chewing. You may also experience increased sensitivity while eating certain foods and you may also have a dull ache or pain resonating from the area of the infection. The sooner an infected root canal is taken care of, the more likely you will be able to prevent more widespread damage. If left untreated, the decay can spread to compromise the entire tooth or even spread to adjacent, nearby teeth, too. Here at Dental Specialty Associates, our endodontist will perform a Downtown Manhattan root canal that will alleviate the issue. First, inflamed and infected tissue will be removed, including the infected pulp. The remaining cavity is cleaned of any decay and smoothed out. It may then be filled, but the tooth is not usually fully restored until this therapy has proven to be successful.
If you are experiencing any kind of tooth pain, do not let it go ignored. Call us here at Dental Specialty Associates to schedule a Downtown Manhattan root canal treatment that will restore your dental health.
