Do you think you may be in need of a root canal procedure? It is a common misconception that root canal therapy is an especially painful and uncomfortable dental procedure, but if you go to an experienced professional such as our Borough Park root canal specialist, Dr. Michael Feinberg, it does not need to be a scary experience at all. Root canal therapy is typically turned to if you have a tooth with an infected pulp. You have a pulp at the center of each of your teeth. It is made up of soft tissues. If the pulp becomes exposed to the bacteria and debris in your mouth, in can become inflamed and infected. The pulp can become exposed to these bacteria as a result of tooth decay, if the tooth becomes cracked or broken, or from injury to the mouth and tooth.
There are certain symptoms that can indicate if your tooth is infected. There is usually mild to moderate pain in that specific tooth, especially when chewing or biting down. You may also notice an increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods, drinks, and temperatures in general. An infected tooth often becomes discolored and darkens if it is not treated. If you have noticed any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Borough Park root canal specialist so that Dr. Feinberg can evaluate your symptoms and recommend treatment. Root canal therapy is often chosen in situations such as these. The main goals of root canal therapy are to gain access to the infected pulp, remove it, thoroughly clean the area, and re-fill it and seal it using safe dental materials. Root canal procedures performed by Dr. Feinberg are never especially painful or uncomfortable, and are always highly effective.
