Do you have a tooth that has become severely decayed, or infected in its root? If so, you will probably need one of our highly effective Midwood root canals with Dr. Abraham Esses. A root canal is necessary when the nerve of the root of a tooth is damaged, or when the pulp becomes infected. A complete root canal procedure with Dr. Esses can repair these issues and in turn save your tooth. At our Midwood dental practice, we have noticed that patients are often fearful about getting root canals, because they have heard that they are extremely painful and uncomfortable procedures, but we assure you that that is not so.
The symptoms that indicate that you need a Midwood root canal are typically more painful than the procedure itself. Some common symptoms that typically indicate the need for a root canal are severe pain in the tooth while chewing or biting down, extended tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, discoloration or darkening of the tooth, tenderness or swollen gums, and or a constant pimple appearing on the gums. In some cases, no outward symptoms are exhibited, which is why it is important to get regular dental exams. There are several different ways that the pulp of your tooth might get infected or the nerve damaged. It can occur as a result of decay, chips or cracks in the tooth, trauma to the mouth and teeth, or repeated dental work occurring in the same area over and over (like a dental filling).
Our Midwood root canals have helped many patients gain relief from their painful symptoms and return to their daily lives. If monetary concerns are holding you back from getting a root canal procedure, we encourage you to note that we work with many different insurance plans, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, CIGNA, Guardian, Health First, Met Life, Sun Life, United Healthcare, and many others. We also accept most major credit cards for payment.
