Lake Success Root Canal
If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something hot or cold, you may indeed have an infected tooth that needs root canal therapy. Sensitivity to heat or cold and red or swollen gums surrounding the tooth are common symptoms of an infected tooth. When you come to our dental office with tooth pain, our dentist will be able to determine the exact cause of the pain and let you know which type of treatment is needed. If you need a Lake Success root canal
, you will be able to receive this important treatment at our dental practice, Alan S. Kuznick DMD.
At our dental office, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Alan S. Kuznick. If it is determined that you do indeed have an infected tooth, it is important to know that the only way this tooth can get better is with a Lake Success root canal
treatment. If this treatment is not performed, the dental pain will not go away until the tooth is either extracted or falls out on its own. It is also dangerous to leave an infected tooth in your mouth as the infection can spread to other teeth, or even through the bloodstream to other parts of your body. For all these reasons you will want to have a root canal treatment as soon as possible. Additionally, the sooner the root canal procedure is performed the more likely it is that it will be successful. When you have a root canal treatment at our office, our dentist will advise you as to the likelihood of the treatment being successful at the time that he first examines your tooth.
During the root canal procedure, you will remain perfectly comfortable, as our dentist will administer a local anesthetic. Our dentist will be able to let you know whether or not you need to have the procedure performed in one or two dental visits. During the procedure, the infected pulp is removed from the center of the tooth and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned. The tooth is then sealed so that bacteria will not reenter the tooth. At some point after the root canal procedure, your tooth will most likely need to be restored and protected by a porcelain crown. Root canal procedures are successful in saving the teeth in over 90% of cases. For an appointment to meet with our dentist regarding getting a Lake Success root canal
