When you don’t take proper care of your teeth, gums, and mouth, diseases and infections can cause pain and even decay of the teeth. If the decay becomes too advanced, the best treatment option may be a root canal in Glendale NY. And the best place to receive that therapy is at Implant and Cosmetic Dental Care, PLLC.
Many people cringe when they hear the words “root canal”. But what was once a painful, invasive procedure is now relatively pain-free, with non-surgical treatments available. However, the best option is still to practice proper, preventative oral hygiene habits so that a root canal can be avoided completely. The reasons for a tooth needing our root canal in Glendale NY can vary, but usually it's because of an infection that was made possible by a severely decayed tooth, a deep filling, or a tooth that is chipped or cracked. Symptoms of the infection are generally acute dental pain or sensitivity to hot, cold or percussion. During root canal therapy, the injured or diseased pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. The procedure will begin by Dr. Demirdjan making an opening in the crown of the tooth or teeth. Then he will gently remove the infected or inflamed pulp from your tooth. After carefully shaping, sterilizing, and cleaning the inside of the canal, the opening is filled and sealed with a rubber-like compound. At the next appointment, usually a week later, the roots and the inside cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with special dental materials. A filling will be placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed. This will protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking, and restore it to its full function.
Teeth treated by Dr. Demirdjan can last just as long as natural teeth, but a re-treatment may be required in some cases due to improper healing or other complications. You will be given care instructions after each appointment. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your root canal treatment. With the expertise of Dr. Demirdjan, receiving a root canal in Glendale NY no longer has to be an uncomfortable, frightening experience. You’ll leave our office smiling, showing off your beautiful, well cared-for teeth!
