Our root canal therapy Marine Park may not be something you look forward to, but when you consider that it not only offers you relief for the unpleasant symptoms you’re experiencing, but also has a 90% success rate in saving your tooth, perhaps you should look forward to it. At the office of Michael I. Feinburg, it’s a comfortable procedure done with expert precision and gentle care by our dedicated endodontist, who specializes in root canal.
The most common cause of the problems that lead to our root canal therapy Marine Park is that your tooth has become infected. Ordinarily, your tooth’s protective layers shield it from the effects of bacteria, but that can change when you have a large cavity, deep filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth. Those layers become compromised. The pulp of the tooth is located inside, at the base, right next to the nerve. That’s where the infection is. Less often, the pulp can become damaged due to some kind of dental trauma. Among the symptoms that you may have, the most prominent is pain, especially when you chew or you apply pressure to the tooth. Other possible signs are sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, gum tenderness, and tooth discoloration. Our root canal therapy Marine Park is one treatment option, and the favored one. Otherwise, the tooth would have to be extracted. Doing so, however, means that your smile is incomplete, your other teeth can shift and cause discomfort and misaligned jaws, and your ability to chew might be hindered. Tooth replacements are available, but require time, effort, and money.
With most patients reporting very little or no discomfort at all during root canal, this non-surgical procedure is essential to restoring your dental health. Call us right away to arrange an appointment.
