What happens when your tooth becomes infected? The answer depend on how fast you move to get the necessary care. Here at PresiDental Care, we make it a priority to have you seen right away because our goal is to remove the infected tissue and restore your tooth to its normal, pain-free state.
The infection occurs when the protective layers of your tooth are compromised, typically due to a cavity or the structure of the tooth becoming damaged. This also includes loose and lost fillings. Unfortunately, some people make the mistake of ignoring such problems if there is no pain attached to them. Eventually, you are likely to feel pain, especially when you touch the tooth or chew using it. Other common symptoms are sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, tooth discoloration, gum tenderness, and swelling. You may notice one or more of them, but the solution is our Rego Park root canal. When performed in a timely fashion, the success rate is over 90%. And that’s a good thing, because the only other way to deal with it is to extract the tooth, leaving you with empty space and the need to replace the tooth. That’s time and cost that you should not have to spend if you don’t have to. Our Rego Park root canal is much simpler. The infected tissue is removed, the canals are then cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. If more than one session is needed, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to keep the tooth shielded. A permanent crown is provided after full healing has taken place. Your tooth will be back to full size, function, and appearance, with the same durability as any other tooth.
Our Rego Park root canal is the way to regain a pain-free and healthy tooth. Just call us to book a timely appointment for this treatment.
