Our Rockland dentist specializes in endodontic treatment, which encompasses root canals, endodontic retreatment of failed root canals, apexifcation, and addressing urgent matters like cracked teeth, dislodged teeth, and avulsed teeth. Our practice is centered on the repair of teeth that would otherwise be lost. At Rockland Endodontics, our priority is have you keep your natural teeth whenever possible.
Root canal is a misunderstood procedure. It is associated with fear and pain, and that is not at all what it is about, particularly here at our office where it is something done with such frequency as to be routine. We have performed over 20,000 root canals, so you can feel completely confident. And while there are some that will need to be done in two sessions, we can do the majority of them in one visit. Root canal as performed by our Rockland dentist does not cause pain. It relieve the pain you are already in. Over 90% of root canals are successful. But when they are not, endodontic retreatment is an option that can increase the odds of keeping the tooth. It is basically a re-do of the root canal, but since the pulp has already been removed, the focus is on replacing the filling material and then following the same process as a standard root canal. For cracked teeth, and dislodged or avulsed teeth (ones that have been knocked free of their socket entirely), root canal is often needed to repair pulp damage. You can depend on our Rockland dentist. If the tooth is not treated promptly and with expert care, it is likely that it would have to be extracted. After a traumatic injury, the last thing you should have to deal with is the loss of the tooth as well. We do everything we can to avoid that. And with apexifcation, a tooth that has unhealthy pulp tissue and incomplete root formation can be addressed to correct those problems.
You can be assured that for vital endodontic care, we are here to help. Call us to set up an appointment.
