Root Canal Treatments (Endodontics) Bronx

Contained within a tooth you will find a very fine space called the root canal. This canal holds dental pulp which is made up of blood vessels and nerves. The pulp can become diseased and or die causing a toothache or even an abscess. The normal reaction to this problem in the past was to simply remove the tooth. Times sure have changed and now your trusted dentist can offer you root canal therapy to care for these teeth.

Is root canal therapy painful?

Root canal therapy will reduce the painful symptoms associated with a toothache or an abscess almost immediately and the use of local anesthetic and modern painkillers is prescribed to help reduce pain as well.

How is a tooth restored following root canal therapy?

Bacteria from the mouth can be a big problem once root canal therapy has been performed and it is essential that any restoration sufficiently seals the root filling. Teeth that require root canal therapy commonly have widespread damage and require a crown to restore them accurately. These teeth have been weakened and the added fortification of a crown is recommended.

How successful is root canal therapy?

If the root canal is fully cleaned, sealed and the tooth properly restored then root canal therapy has a very high success rate. Depending on the severity of the infection it may take more than one visit to complete the procedure while antibiotics are administered to help reduce infection.

With root canal therapy a dead tooth can be saved and can last a lifetime with its roots receiving nourishment from the surrounding teeth.
