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.
