If you are experiencing any consistent tooth aches or pain, then schedule an appointment with one of our downtown NYC endodontists immediately. Diagnosing the problem is the first step to proper and effective treatment. Dr. Cho or Dr. Foroughi will see you for a preliminary examination in order to assess your overall oral health and to identify the cause of your active symptoms. Using the latest technology here at Dental Specialty Associates, our endodontists will be able to give you precise information and feedback regarding your condition and what steps need to be taken to rectify it. One of the more common endodontic treatments is for root canals. When the nerve of the tooth is affected by infection or decay, then endodontic treatment is necessary. The infected pulp of the tooth is removed using the latest rotary canal technology. Our use of such tools helps ensure the success rate of the procedure while also making the experience more comfortable for the patient. Once the infected pulp is removed, the area is cleaned and filled to prevent further infection or further decay. We also treat patients who exhibit tooth aches.

There are any number of causes for tooth aches and pains, and using the state of the art technology here at Dental Specialty Associates, our downtown NYC endodontists can better determine the cause and prescribe treatment. Tooth aches can result from dental cavities, dental abscess, an exposed tooth root, gum disease, spasms of the jaw muscles, disease of the jaw joint, or even a cracked or broken tooth. Additionally, severe tooth luxation injuries can also be treated here. This occurs when the tooth is displaced via injury from the alveolar bone, which is the bone that contains the tooth sockets.

Salvaging the tooth is always our goal here at Dental Specialty Associates and we are here to provide you with expert and gentle care needed to resolve any of your tooth pain.

Years and years ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. However, with Endodontic treatment performed at Dental Specialty Associates in Manhattan you can save that tooth. Endodontics is a specialist sub-field of dentistry that focuses on the pulp of the tooth and the tissue around it. This field focuses on the inside of the teeth, which is where the tooth is actually living and must be treated accordingly. Endodontists are familiar with how to stabilize and protect the sensitive and important innards of your teeth. Through root canals and other procedures, endodontists Dr. Cho and Dr. Foroughi at Dental Specialty Associates can extend the life of or heal hurt or decaying teeth, thus giving you a healthier mouth.

When you look at your teeth in the mirror, you see the crown. The remainder of your tooth, the portion beneath the gum line, is the root. The outer portion of the root is a hard tissue called dentin and the inside channel, or “root canal” is a pulp of soft tissue, blood vessels and nerves. The “root canal” is responsible for forming the surrounding dentin and enamel during tooth development.

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. This results most commonly from deep cavities called caries, repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips. If pulp inflammation or infection goes untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

You may need Endodontic treatment if you experience:

  • prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • discoloration of the tooth
  • swelling or tenderness of the tooth
  • swelling or tenderness of adjacent gums

Endodontic treatment helps save your tooth by removing the diseased portion of the tooth, in this case, the pulp. Additionally, it prevents further infection because an Endodontist will carefully clean and shape the canal system and then permanently sealing the prepared space. The outer surface is then sealed with a temporary restoration, however, a permanent restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and recontamination.

An Endodontist is a dentist that has undergone a minimum of two years of additional postgraduate training, which allows them to deal with dieases of the dental pulp and supporting structures, as well as diagnose facial pain and related problems. The Endodontic specialists, Dr. Cho and Dr. Foroughi at our multi-specialty dental practice on Broadway in Downtown Manhattan aim to save the patient’s natural teeth by restoring dental health and function.

We offer the following endodontic services:

  • Diagnostic Services: The initial differential diagnosis of a patient’s chief complaint is among the keys to successful treatment. Our endodontists use extensive experience and the most state-of-the-art tools available anywhere to diagnose your condition. Successful endodontic treatment is dependent on an accurate diagnosis. At Dental Specialty Associates, we take pride is our diagnostic prowess.
  • Root Canals: We perform root canals on anterior, premolar and molar teeth. We use the latest rotary root canal technology. This allows us to minimize office visits and makes the root canal experience much more comfortable and predictable.
  • Tooth Avulsion is the most severe of tooth luxation injuries. The tooth is completely displaced from the alveolar bone (the bone containing the tooth sockets). We will try to salvage the lost tooth.
  • Toothache: Common dental causes of toothache include dental cavities, dental abscess, gum disease or eruption. A comprehensive exam by our endodontist can help determine the cause of the toothache and the appropriate treatment.
