Root canal therapy provides relief for the pain of a tooth infection. If the procedure is successful, which is about 90% of the time), your tooth will remain viable and strong, and be as durable as any other tooth. At Dental Specialty Associates, you need not have any anxiety about having it done, either. It is performed with the benefit of advanced technology and instruments, and most patients say that there was little to no discomfort.
Our root canal Downtown NYC is the solution when bacteria has sneaked past the natural protective layers of your tooth to inflame or infect the pulp, which is inside at the base, right next to the nerve. The most obvious symptom that you’re likely to experience is pain when you chew or when you apply pressure to the tooth. The degree of pain can be anywhere from mild to excruciating, but do not be lulled into a false sense of security if it’s not that bad. It can get worse, and it can happen without any warning. Consider that pain an alert from your tooth that you need prompt attention. Another indication that you could need a root canal Downtown NYC is sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks. Sometimes, there may be some gum tenderness or tooth discoloration, as well. Before starting the procedure, our dentist will examine you and take x-rays to reach a conclusive diagnosis. The process involves removal of the pulp and nerve, cleaning and disinfecting of the canals, and then sealing the canals. Some teeth can be done in one session, while others, especially if they have more than one canal, might require more than one.
There’s no reason to let tooth pain cause you to suffer. Our root canal Downtown NYC rescues you from that and restores your tooth to an optimal state of wellness. Call us right away to arrange a timely appointment.
