You will learn that your tooth’s nerve and pulp can become inflamed, irritated, and infected because of deep decay, repeated dental procedures, large fillings, a chip or crack in the tooth, large fillings or trauma to your face. It’s possible to have no obvious symptoms, but when they are present, some root canal symptoms may include severe toothache pain upon chewing, persistent sensitivity or pain to heat or cold temperatures, darkening of your tooth, swelling in the nearby gums, or a persistent pimple on your gums. Our Chestnut Ridge root canal specialist incorporates state-of-the-art equipment and the most modern techniques to make your root canal therapy as painless and anxiety-free as possible.
Specifically, a root canal is a treatment performed to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. This common treatment is needed in order to save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental bridges or implants. Our Chestnut Ridge root canal specialist is well educated in all phases of anesthesia and sedation and will discuss all options with you to help choose what will work best. During your root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp is removed and the inside of your tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without proper treatment, the tissue surrounding your tooth will become infected and abscesses can form. An abscess occurs when the infection spreads all the way past the ends of the roots of your tooth. In addition to an abscess, an infection in the root canal of a tooth can cause swelling that may spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head. At Rockland Endodontics, we will make sure you are aware of any risk factors and put your mind at ease regarding all aspects of your therapy.
