Toothaches and pains are often associated with cavities, but a toothache may also signify the presence of an infected root canal. Root canal infections can be quite painful and they can also cause the loss of a tooth if they are not treated as soon as possible. If you need treatment for a Brooklyn NY root canal, then you can receive the root canal therapy that you need here with our endodontic expert, Abraham Esses, DDS.
Root canals and cavities tend to share some of the same symptoms. Toothaches and other instances of oral pain may occur when eating or drinking, specifically hot or cold foods, or when open air hits the affected tooth. Root canal infections tend to have a more lasting and persistent pain because The infection is located at the center of the tooth, which is also where the nerve ending is located as well. Because of this reason, root canals tend to be more painful than your average cavity. No matter what though, root canal infection should be treated as soon as possible, and the first treatment implemented to take care of this condition is root canal therapy. Abraham Esses, DDS can provide patients with treatment for Brooklyn NY route canals, first considering root canal therapy which aims to eliminate diseased tissue and tooth mass. Sometimes, the nerve ending is also removed. If root canal therapy is unsuccessful, there are a number of other procedures that can be considered such as root end resections or apicoectomies.
It’s important that route canals are treated as soon as possible, otherwise you may end up losing your tooth completely. The goal of root canal therapy, or even dental fillings to treat a cavity, is to salvage as much of the tooth as possible without having to remove the tooth at all. The sooner you have a root canal treated, the better. If you need treatment for a Brooklyn NY root canal, then please visit us here at the offices of Abraham Esses, DDS.
