Simply put, root canal therapy is performed to save teeth. Your root canal dentist in Jackson Heights Queens
at Best Care Family Dental, is expert at performing this procedure for his patients. Root canal therapy is needed when the inner portion of a tooth, the pulp, becomes infected. The tooth pulp then needs to be removed and the tooth needs to be cleared of any remaining bacteria. If an infected tooth is left untreated, the bone around the tooth may become damaged, and you will experience pain and swelling in the immediate area.
Your root canal dentist in Jackson Heights Queens
will explain that teeth can become infected in several different ways. Sometimes bacteria can enter a tooth through a crack in a tooth or dental filling. Other times a tooth may become infected when a deep cavity is left untreated. Whatever the cause, the tooth will need endodontic treatment (root canal therapy) in order to be saved. Many people become nervous when they hear the words “root canal,” but the truth is that with today’s medical advances, root canal treatment can occur with the patient only receiving a local anesthetic. The patient remains comfortable during the entire process, and is able to return to work or daily activity once they leave the dentist’s office. During the root canal, all bacteria and debris is removed from the tooth, the interior of the tooth is cleaned, and a filling is made for the tooth. If a tooth is left in a weakened state after root canal, that is, much of the tooth is missing, a temporary crown may be put in place until a permanent one, exactly matching the patient’s needs, is made. Once the permanent crown is in place, you will have a healthy, fully functioning tooth. Your tooth has been saved, and you will feel much better with the pain in your mouth gone. If you have a tooth in need of root canal therapy, make an appointment today to visit us at Best Care Family Dental.
