If you have a tooth that is damaged in its interior, you will need to have root canal therapy to save the tooth. At our general dentistry practice, Abraham Esses, DDS, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Abraham Esses, can provide you with a Brooklyn NY root canal if necessary.
It used to be that patients were very fearful of having root canal treatments. This is because they were known to be painful. However, today, due to the use of modern dental anesthesia and advanced technology and techniques, patients are now able to have this dental service performed while they remain in total comfort at our dental practice. Today, root canal therapy has actually been renamed by the American Association of Endodontist as non-surgical endodontic therapy. It is the same process, using the same materials. When the pulp at the interior of the tooth becomes infected or damaged, it is important to have root canal therapy in order to save the tooth. Thankfully, root canal therapy is effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. Our dentist will be able to determine whether or not you need to have root canal therapy, and if so, he will be able to let you know how likely it is that the root canal treatment will be successful. The sooner a tooth receives root canal treatment, the more likely it is that the tooth will be saved. So it is always recommended that you contact our dental practice as soon as you begin to experience tooth pain. Tooth pain when you eat something hot or cold, or when the tooth is pressed upon, is generally a clear sign that you need to have a Brooklyn NY root canal treatment. During the root canal treatment, all infected or damaged tooth pulp is removed from the center of the tooth, the tooth and root canal systems are cleaned, and the tooth is resealed.
