Root Canal Dentist – White Plains: Save Your Tooth and Your Smile!

Got a toothache?

Don’t worry, root canal treatment can save your tooth and your smile! If you experience intense pain when biting down, sensitivity to temperature, tooth discoloration, or tenderness in the gum, you might need a root canal. Contact your dentist ASAP to avoid pain getting worse.

But don’t take pain medication before going to the dentist – let them identify the problem first. Treatment can be completed within 1-3 appointments, depending on the level of infection or decay.

During treatment, you’ll be numbed with anesthetic and a dental dam will be placed to prevent infection from spreading. Then the infected pulp and nerve will be removed and replaced with a rubber-like filling. After the procedure, you can usually resume normal activities, but be careful when eating and avoid hot or cold foods.

Root canal treatment isn’t as scary as it sounds – it’s usually painless and can preserve your tooth for a lifetime. So don’t be afraid to get the treatment you need to save your tooth and your smile!

White Plains Family Dental Arts: Saving Your Tooth and Your Smile with Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment can save your tooth and your smile! In the past, a tooth with a diseased nerve would often be lost. However, thanks to modern dentistry, root canals are a relatively simple procedure involving one to three office visits.

How do you know if you need a root canal treatment?

A tooth that’s in need of root canal treatment doesn’t always cause pain, but if you experience intense toothache, pain when biting down, sensitivity to extremes of temperature, discoloration of the tooth, or tenderness in the gum, you may need root canal treatment. Get in touch with White Plains Family Dentistry without delay as pain can often intensify if symptoms are untreated.

Endodontic ‘root canal’ treatment preserves the tooth when the soft tissue inside becomes inflamed or infected, often caused by a cracked or broken tooth or decay. A dental x-ray may also be required to determine if a root canal is required.

During your root canal

During root canal treatment and root canal retreatment, the tooth and surrounding gum tissue will be numbed with anesthetic. A dental dam is put in place to isolate the area, and an opening is created in the top of the tooth. Once all of the infected pulp and nerve from within the tooth’s root is removed, and the area cleaned and medicated, the empty root canal is shaped to accommodate dental composite filling, called ‘gutta percha’. After treatment is completed, a temporary filling is applied to seal the tooth, ready for the next stage of treatment from your dentist.

How long does it take to complete root canal treatment? Treatment is usually completed within two visits to the office, though you can generally anticipate between 1-3 appointments, depending on the level of infection, or degree of decay. With good oral maintenance, root canal treatment will restore the tooth and can preserve it for a lifetime.

Does root canal treatment hurt? 

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being painful, but patients can be reassured that while symptoms creating the necessity of a root canal procedure can hurt, the procedure itself is unlikely to cause discomfort. White Plains Family Dental Arts uses the most advanced dental technologies and techniques to provide a relaxing environment, promoting comfort and confidence in your treatment, no matter how nervous you feel as a patient.

After receiving root canal treatment, be very careful when eating. 

Recommended foods are those that are neither too hot nor too cold, and require minimal chewing. Soft fruits with no seeds, such as banana and mango, especially in a smoothie are good.

Don’t wait until it’s too late! If you are experiencing toothache, sensitivity to temperature, or other symptoms, contact White Plains Family Dental Arts immediately to schedule a consultation with a root canal dentist. Our team of dental practitioners will identify what treatment is required to restore your oral health and your beautiful smile.
