Root Canal Therapy Brooklyn
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures, with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
Endodontic Specialist in Brooklyn
An endodontist is a specialist in the area of soft tissue inside the tooth. Endodontists, who perform root canals, receive advanced education after graduating from dental school and typically only deal with endodontic-related problems. A common misconception is that a root canal is a painful procedure. Actually, root canals are similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal pain. Common causes for the need of endodontic treatment:
Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
Chipped or broken tooth
Blow to the tooth
Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
Repeated dental procedures on a tooth
Endodontists may use any of the following procedures to do so:
Endodontic Therapy Brooklyn
Commonly known as root canal treatment, endodontic therapy is used to remove the infected pulp and nerves from the tooth’s root canals. During endodontic treatment, your root canal dentist uses small files to clean the pulp from the chamber and shape the canals. The canals are then filled to seal the chamber off from infection. A dental crown is usually placed to restore and protect your tooth from further damage. After your visit to your dental endodontist is complete, you may return to your general dentist to for your restoration.
Endodontic Retreatment Brooklyn
Endodontic therapy has over a 95 percent success rate. But in the cases where a root canal fails, endodontic retreatment is often necessary. A tooth can become re-infected at any time — sometimes months or years after the original treatment. Retreatment is often referred to dental endodontists due to the complexity of their nature. During retreatment, endodontists remove the crown and dental filling material to regain access to the root canals. Your endodontist will thoroughly clean the canals and remove any infection left behind.
Endodontic Surgery Brooklyn
If endodontic retreatment fails or is not an option, endodontic surgery may be used to save the tooth. Types of endodontic surgery include:
Apicoectomy Brooklyn NY
The most common type of endodontic surgery is an apicoectomy, or root-end resection. An apicoectomy removes the tip of the root and relieves the infection surrounding the end of your tooth’s root. During the procedure, your dental endodontist will access the area via the gums to remove the infection, then fill the area and stitch the gums to help them heal.
Exploratory Surgery Brooklyn
When the source of your pain can’t be detected on an X-ray, your endodontist can use surgery to detect the problem and provide treatment. Exploratory surgery is often used to detect root fractures and problems in the bone.
Intentional Replantation Brooklyn
During intentional replantation, the tooth is extracted, given endodontic treatment and re-implanted back into its socket.
