Tribeca Periodontist

Periodontics is a specialty in dentistry that involves the supportive structures around the teeth. Periodontal (gum) disease is not uncommon but can be serious. It is very important that you are aware of the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease because if you notice anything unusual about the state of your gums or teeth, you’ll need to be evaluated by a gum disease specialist at Dental Specialty Associates. Our Tribeca periodonist has the expertise to evaluate and to treat periodontal disease.

Some of the symptoms of gum disease include: red, tender, or swollen gums, bleeding while brushing your teeth, eating or eating hard foods, teeth that appear longer (this can occur because they are pulling away from the gums), loose teeth, puss between your gums and your teeth, soars in your mouth, and bad breath that won’t go away.

Endodontist in Tribeca

The crown and the roots are the two basic parts of a tooth. The crown is generally above your gum, while the roots are below the gum and attach your tooth to your jawbone. Inside the crown and the root is pulp which is made of soft tissue and keeps your tooth nourished. Endodontic therapy, carried out in the pulp of the tooth, is a root canal treatment, intended to clear infection and protect the tooth from any further infections. Our Tribeca Endodontist carries out the endodontic therapy by completely removing everything that lies in the root canal. The hollow area is then cleaned, shaped and decontaminated. After endodontic therapy the patient will no longer feel any pain from that tooth because the nerve tissue has been taken out and the infection has been removed. We understand that some patients are often afraid of undergoing endodontic therapy but when the procedure is done by our well-trained and educated dental surgeon at Dental Specialty Associates, it’s relatively painless.

We do all we can to help our patients feel comfortable entering into this procedure because it’s necessary to have when the dental pulp, or root canal area, is diseased. When diseased, the pulp cannot repair itself and it dies. Pulp death can happen due to a deep cavity or even a cracked tooth. Through that deep cavity or crack, bacteria can get in and eventually destroy the pulp. If the bacteria penetrate through the root openings the bone will become infected, eventually weaken it and break it down, and the tooth will become loose. Our Tribeca Endodontist is an expert in the field and uses the most state-of-the-art tools available to diagnose your condition. We know that successful endodontic treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis so we take time with your initial consultation and diagnostic testing.

If you do have pulp damage that requires endodontic therapy, you may find your tooth very sensitive to high and low temperatures, feel discomfort when chewing, and there may be a constant throbbing pain. Without treatment by our Tribeca root canal specialist, the infection will spread and the tooth will eventually fall out. If severe pain is an issue, some patients prefer to have the tooth pulled out. Extracting a tooth, however, may cause the surrounding teeth to shift and become crooked and if your teeth are crooked you usually can’t manage a good bite. Endodontic therapy at Dental Specialty Associates will usually stop the tooth from falling out and eliminate the pain.
