If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something hot or cold, you may well have a tooth that is infected. If you have an infected tooth, it needs to be treated by a root canal treatment. When a tooth is infected or decayed in its pulp, the tooth will be lost unless the infection is treated. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth. If you have a tooth that is painful, we hope you will come in to see us at Rockland Endodontics, where our endodontist in Rockland will be able to definitively determine the cause of your tooth pain, and provide you with the necessary expert treatment.
At our endodontic practice, our highly skilled endodontists are Dr. Garry L. Bey and Dr. Monica Juneja. If you come to us with a painful tooth, and it is determined that the tooth needs a root canal treatment, our endodontist in Rockland can expertly perform that procedure for you. In fact, our endodontists have performed over 20,000 successful root canals! At our endodontic practice, the safety and comfort of our patients is our top priority. You can be sure that when you receive a root canal treatment at our practice that you will be treated with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques which will ensure that your experience will be both stress-free and pain-free.
During root canal therapy, our endodontist will remove the infected or inflamed pulp from the center of the tooth. The inside of the canal will be carefully shaped and sterilized with nickel-titanium rotary instruments. The canal will then be filled and sealed with a biocompatible material. The handpieces that we use are virtually silent, and provide very minimal vibration. Our ultrasonic equipment has diamond-coated tips which allow us to provide the most precise treatment resulting in minimal damage to the healthy parts of the tooth. At our practice, most of our root canal treatments can be performed in just one visit. When you come to our practice, our endodontist will let you know about your individual case; if your case requires more involved treatment, you may need to return for a second appointment. We will provide you with a written report as well as post-treatment x-ray images for your regular dentist. If a restorative crown is necessary, this will be provided by your own restorative dentist.
