Dr. Benjamin and his team provide root canal therapy at our offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn. This treatment addresses problems with the root canal – the inner part of the tooth. The root canal contains tissue, known as the "pulp," that extends from the crown of the tooth down through the root to the tip of the tooth. When this tissue becomes damaged or diseased, this can cause pain, swelling, and even damage to the jawbone. When the pulp becomes infected, the tooth can be saved with root canal therapy. This treatment involves replacing the damaged pulp with an artificial material, which prolongs the use of the tooth and, often, eliminates the need for extraction.
Root canal treatment is performed in a manner that is both painless as well as relaxing. Care is given to assure maximum comfort to the patient. To begin the treatment, the dentist administers an anesthetic. When the mouth is fully numb, he removes the damaged pulp and cleans the root canal. Next, he fills the canal with a strong dental material. Finally, he covers the tooth with a temporary crown, which the patient will wear until the permanent version is ready.
If you have a toothache or other problem with your teeth, it is best to get it taken care of immediately, before the problem can worsen. To restore unhealthy teeth, Dr. Benjamin and the team at All American Smile Dental Studios offer a full range of restorative dentistry treatments at our Manhattan and Brooklyn offices, from dental fillings to bridges.
The best way to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile is to take great care of your teeth. At All American Smile Dental Studios, we provide regular checkups and cleanings to meet your preventive care needs. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, keeping your teeth clean prevents plaque buildup that can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Coupled with checkups, these cleanings will help us prevent and identify any potential problems in their earliest stages.
