You don’t have to be nervous about needing root canal therapy. As a specialist in performing this non-surgical treatment, our endodontist, Michael I. Feinberg can assure you that your experience will be a smooth one. In fact, most of our patients tell us that hey have very little or even no discomfort at all during the course of our root canal in Marine Park. That’s because state-of-the-art methods and equipment are put to use at our office.
The reason why the treatment is necessary at all is that your tooth’s pulp, which is next to the nerve inside the tooth, has been either infected or it has been damaged as the result of dental trauma. This injury results in pain, which is typically most acute when you chew food or you apply pressure to the tooth. Don’t be misled if you have minimal pain at first. If you ignore the problem and don’t get our root canal in Marine Park, you can be pretty certain that more noticeable pain is on the way. Other symptoms that may be indicative of your need for treatment are sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, tooth discoloration, and gum tenderness. Our root canal in Marine Park is done under local anesthesia, to keep you numb and comfortable during it. The pulp and nerve are removed. The the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. It’s all very simple, and the outcome is that you get to keep your natural tooth, which should remain as strong and viable as any of your other teeth. And the success rate for the treatment is 90% or better, meaning you can be.
