If you are in need of root canal therapy, there is no better place to visit than our downtown Brooklyn dental practice, Hanson Place Dental. At our office, we use the latest techniques and equipment to provide rotary root canal therapy procedures on anterior, premolar, and molar teeth. Because of our helpful rotary root canal system, our procedures are even more effective and less of a hassle for you as the patient. If you are unsure if a root canal procedure is necessary, we are here to inform you about the basic symptoms associated with a need for root canal therapy and how our treatment can relieve those symptoms.
Firstly, the main reason that a root canal treatment is needed is if the pulp of one of your teeth has become infected. The pulp is a grouping of soft tissue right at the center of your tooth. If your tooth is decayed, the pulp can start to become to bacteria and food debris in your mouth, and then the pulp can get infected. The symptoms associated with an infected pulp are usually a mild to moderate feeling of toothache, increased tooth sensitivity in the affected tooth, and in come cases discoloration or darkening of the tooth as its infection grows. If you have noticed any of these symptoms with any of your teeth, you should schedule an appointment with the experts at our downtown Brooklyn dental practice so that we can assess your situation and determine if a root canal treatment is necessary. The treatment has a few simple goals: to gain access to the infected pulp, to remove it, to thoroughly clean the area and rid it of the offending bacteria, and then seal it up to prevent any similar issues from occurring in future. At Hanson Place Dental, we have performed many successful root canal therapies and would be glad to do the same for you.
