If you have a painful tooth in your mouth, you should make an appointment to immediately come in to see us at Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts. Our expert dentist, Dr. Ilya Sapozhnik, will assess your tooth problem and determine whether or not you need to have a Croton-on-Hudson root canal.

When a tooth has infected or damaged pulp in its center, it often causes tooth pain, especially when you eat something that is hot or cold. A tooth in this condition can also be painful when pressure is placed upon it. Our dentist will be able to determine whether or not your tooth has damaged or infected pulp, and if so, he will provide your tooth with an effective Croton-on-Hudson root canal treatment. It is common for a tooth to have damaged or infected pulp and this can develop from tooth decay or tooth trauma. If your tooth has this problem, unless it receives root canal treatment, it will only proceed to have its condition worsen; there is no way to fix a tooth with damaged pulp except with a root canal procedure. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is to be successful. So, it is wise for you to contact our dental office at the earliest sign of tooth pain. During a root canal procedure, all infected or damaged pulp is removed from the center of the tooth, and the root canal system and teeth are thoroughly cleaned and sealed. Happily, root canal procedures are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. And, root canal procedures are performed while our patients remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair. This is due to our use of state-of-the-art dental equipment, modern dental procedures, and the very best dental anesthesia.

When a tooth has become damaged in some manner, it can break or become decayed, resulting in infection. If the infection progresses without treatment, the tooth may need to be extracted. An endodontic procedure, or root canal, can save the tooth and alleviate the need of having to perform an extraction. Oftentimes, when teeth become infected it can cause an abscess or result in periodontal disease, which may damage the tooth’s sensitive inner pulp. A Croton-on-Hudson root canal is a necessary procedure to save the tooth if this is the case. Natural teeth should be saved if possible, as there is currently no way to re-implant a natural tooth.

Deep inside the tooth lays a soft inner tissue called pulp. If the pulp opens, it becomes exposed to bacteria and other things that can cause it to decay. If a cavity forms, it can destroy the protective layers of enamel and leave the area open to infection. If left untreated for too long an abscess can form, which is a pus filled area of tissue that can spread quickly to become a dangerous infection. If you believe you have an abscess, you should schedule an appointment immediately for a checkup and a subsequent Croton-on-Hudson root canal if needed.

Other causes of pulp damage include periodontal disease, cracks or breakage. Even if the pulp has been damaged, it is not always necessary to pull the tooth. A Croton-on-Hudson root canal can remove the damaged pulp and return the tooth to a healthier state. After a root canal, patients usually experience no side effects except for slight pain. We may prescribe antibiotics if there was an infection preceding the root canal, which is a quick and procedure. Healing may take slightly longer if an abscess has formed. In some cases, healing may take up to two years.
