Have you ever had root canal therapy? Here at Rockland Endodontics, our Rockland County root canal specialist has helped endless patients preserve their teeth using our high quality root canal therapy treatments. Root canal therapy is used to preserve a tooth that is suffering from an infected pulp, in order to avoid having to extract and replace the tooth. The pulp is a collection of soft tissue located at the center of each of your teeth.
If you have a tooth that is significantly decayed, the pulp of the tooth can then be easily exposed and vulnerable to infection. If you have a tooth with an infected pulp, you will likely experience some uncomfortable symptoms like moderate to severe toothache, increased tooth sensitivity, and even a darkening or discoloration of the tooth in question. If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Rockland County root canal specialist right away. During this first appointment, we will discuss you symptoms with you and examine the current state of your teeth in order to better understand the extent of the problem and determine if root canal therapy is needed. During root canal therapy, our Rockland County root canal specialist will remove the infected pulp from the tooth, and then carefully clean out the area in order to remove any built up bacteria. From there, our Rockland County root canal specialist will seal up the tooth in order to keep it from getting infected again in the future.
