Tooth root infections can disrupt your life. They are painful and can cause unsightly swelling. Fortunately, root canal treatment in Northport, NY, gets rid of the pain and eliminates the swelling. Root canal treatment is also painless.
The alternative to not getting a root canal treatment is losing your tooth and spreading infection, so getting the therapy is worth it.
If you choose extraction over treatment, it’s important to consider tooth replacement to keep your smile healthy. A missing tooth can lead to tooth shifting, bite misalignment, and enamel wear and tear. We offer various tooth replacement options, including dental implants.
Root canal therapy involves extracting the infected material from your tooth root canal, flushing to disinfect, and a temporary filling. This is later replaced with a dental crown or a tooth-colored filling. We perform the procedure under anesthesia. Patients report feeling better immediately following their treatment.
Root infection is a dental emergency. If you have pain and swelling around a tooth, it’s essential to contact our dental office. A team member can book you an emergency visit with the dentist as soon as possible.
