NYC Smile Spa - Root Canal Therapy Done Right

What your tooth pain could be telling you

Are you experiencing tooth pain that won’t go away? Have you noticed a change in the color of a tooth or has one of your teeth become very sensitive to hot and cold? If so, you may have an infection deep in your tooth that needs immediate treatment.

What is root canal therapy and why would I need it?

In the roots of a tooth are small canals that contain the dental pulp—the nerves and blood vessels that keep the tooth alive—which sometimes becomes infected and inflamed. This type of infection is usually due to tooth decay or tooth fractures that give bacteria and other microorganisms access to the pulp inside the root canals. In these cases, the infected tissue must be removed by a procedure known as endodontic therapy, commonly called a root canal.

No need to fear

Root canal therapy has been unfairly characterized as an agonizing procedure. The fact is that, with today’s advanced dental techniques, undergoing a root canal is much like getting a large filling. The procedure is normally completed in a single appointment, and recovery is quick. Drs. Krochak and Perlman are committed to making root canal therapy completely painless during and after the procedure.

Save the tooth!

The biggest benefit of root canal therapy is that it saves your natural tooth, which is always our priority. We do our best not to extract a tooth if there is an alternative solution. Often, root canal therapy can make the difference between losing or keeping your tooth.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or suspect that you may need root canal therapy, contact us right away to schedule an examination.
