If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may have a tooth which is infected or damaged in its interior, where the tooth pulp is found. If this is the case, you will want to visit our endodontic practice, Rockland Endodontics, where our endodontist can perform a root canal and stop your Rockland oral pain; our top-notch endodontists are Dr. Garry L. Bey and Dr. Monica Juneja.
If a tooth is damaged in this manner, it will never get better unless a root canal procedure is performed. If this procedure does not occur, the tooth will only get worse until it falls out on its own. Additionally, the Rockland oral pain and infection will continue, putting your health at risk. The good news is that a root canal procedure is effective in saving the tooth in over 90% of cases. And, today patients can remain perfectly comfortable while they have a root canal procedure at our office due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. Our endodontist will let you know what the likelihood is of your tooth being saved by the root canal treatment. The sooner a root canal treatment is performed, the more likely it is to be successful. During a root canal procedure, our endodontist will gain access to the center of the tooth and remove all infected and damaged tooth pulp. The entire tooth and root canal system will then be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent further reinfection. At our endodontic practice, the entire procedure is performed using state-of-the-art nickel-titanium rotary instruments. We also use silent electric handpieces that work with minimum vibration to help our patients remain comfortable and relaxed. We also have equipment that has diamond-coated tips which are extremely small and will help to preserve as much structure of your tooth as possible. Most root canal procedures can be performed at our office in one visit.
