The idea of root canal therapy often evokes feelings of fear, anxiety, and concern, but if you are in need of a root canal – don’t worry! Schedule an appointment with our Suffern endodontists at Rockland Endodontics and we’ll have you fixed up in no time, without any pain or feeling afraid. Root canal therapy is used to save a tooth in a state of decay that is damaging the pulp inside, or that has been infected. There are several symptoms that may signal a need for root canal therapy, which include ongoing tooth sensitivity to different temperatures, a darkening of a tooth, pain when chewing, and gum tenderness or swollenness. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important that you schedule an appointment to see one of our Suffern endodontists immediately. The root canal process is an intricate one that can make a world of difference for not only your physical comfort but for your overall oral health. The procedure involves several steps; first, the crown of your tooth is opened in order to give the endodontist access to the affected tooth. After the crown has been opened, the pulp is removed from the root canals, and the root canals are carefully cleaned. The final step involves the filling and sealing of the tooth. An additional step is required if a temporary filling is used: you will need to return to one of our expert Suffern endodontists to have it replaced with a permanent one.
