While regular dental visits help monitor your dental and oral health, it is vital that you make an appointment with one of our Chestnut Ridge endodontists as soon as you feel any sudden or unusual symptoms. If you are experiencing erratic pain when chewing or biting down or aching when you eat or drink relatively hot or considerably cool foods, then you may be suffering from a chipped tooth.

Sometimes a chipped tooth can occur due to an injury but it can also occur while eating something particularly hard or in any other way that is not as obvious. No matter what the cause, it is important that you make an appointment to see either Dr. Bey or Dr. Juneja right away. A chipped tooth can not only cause severe pain and discomfort, but can irritate the pulp of the affected tooth and even lead to serious infection of the pulp tissue, even spreading to the jaw and the gums. As soon as you sustain an injury that you believe may have created a chipped tooth or experience any of the symptoms, make an appointment with us here at Rockland Endodontists. Our Chestnut Ridge endodontists are here to provide the comprehensive and thorough care you and your mouth need.

Don’t let symptoms get worse. Make an appointment at the first sign of any discomfort. Even if you do not have a chipped tooth, treating the ailment properly will help save your natural teeth and will relieve you of any and all discomfort. Here at Rockland Endodontics, our dentists know just how important it is that you receive the care you desire and deserve. Our Chestnut Ridge endodontists are here to help save your teeth and your smile.

Root canals are simple treatments that can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for tooth extraction and expensive tooth restorations like dental bridges. However, this general dental procedure should always be performed by a Chestnut Ridge endodontist like those at Rockland Endodontics. Though many general dentists offer endodontic services, they do not have the high level of expertise and extensive training that a licensed endodontist has.

Root Canal Therapy in Chestnut Ridge

Many people don’t know much about root canals, except that they are supposedly extremely painful procedures. The Chestnut Ridge root canal specialists at Rockland Endodontics are here to tell you that a root canal is an extremely useful, highly successful, and generally painless treatment, aimed at saving your natural teeth. At the center of your tooth exists the pulp, a collection of blood vessels that helps build the surrounding tooth. An infection to the pulp, caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks or repeated dental procedures can cause pain and sensitivity in the tooth and gums. This infection will need to be treated with root canal therapy to remove the diseased pulp before the entire structure of the tooth is compromised. The root canal system, which leads to the pulp, will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent re-infection. Root canal therapy at Rockland Endodontics is over 90% successful in normal cases and performed under local anesthesia to eliminate any discomfort.

Still not convinced that root canals are a better alternative to tooth extraction? In the end, a root canal will cause less discomfort, cost less money, and require less visits to the dentist!

With the highest tech equipment available, such as microscope endodontics and digital radiography, the endodontists at Rockland Endodontics are able to efficiently treat patients with a high success rate. With more sophisticated endodontic procedures, dentists are helping people keep their teeth longer. However, bad habits, such as clenching, grinding or chewing on hard objects make your teeth more susceptible to cracks. There are many different varieties of cracked teeth. Rockland cracked tooth treatment will vary depending on the type, location and extent of the crack.

Pearl River Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Pearl River Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Two common cracked teeth are craze lines and fractured cusps. A craze line is a tiny crack that affects only the outer enamel. Because it is a very shallow crack is usually does not cause any pain and is usually treated for aesthetic reasons. This type of cracked tooth is extremely common in adults. Fractured cusps occur when the pointed part on the crown of your tooth becomes weakened and either breaks off by itself or may have to be removed by a dentist. Fractured cusps rarely damage the pulp of the tooth, avoiding the need for root canal treatment at Rockland Endodontics in Pearl River, however, the tooth will usually be restored by a full dental crown.

A more extreme case of cracked tooth is when the crack extends from the chewing surface of the tooth towards the root. It may not be completely separated into two distinct segments, but it does cause damage to the pulp. Your Pearl River endodontist can restore your tooth with a crown to hold the pieces together and protect the cracked tooth. However, if the crack extends bellow the gum tissue, it may need to be removed. Seek treatment immediately at Rockland Endodontics, because cracks can lead to infections in the pulp tissue which can spread to the gum and bone surrounding the cracked tooth.

A cracked tooth usually shows a variety of symptoms, including pain when chewing, release of biting pressure, or pain when tooth is exposed to temperature extremes. In most cases of cracked tooth, the pain may come and go. While cracked teeth are not completely preventable, there are ways to make your teeth less susceptible to cracks. If you find that you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, contact your dentist at Rockland Endodontics about wearing a mouthguard or retainer.
