Endodontics - Root Canals in Our Manhattan Dental Office
To most, endodontics sounds as scary as going to the dentist. But in fact, the word simply stands for one of the dental specialties dealing with tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Endodontics involves many procedures such as root canal therapy, treating cracked teeth and dental trauma. Perhaps, all reasons for us to not like going to the dentist. A damaged root canal can be more than a pain, though. It can ruin your day or even your week. The signs of root canal problems are well familiar: severe pain, swelling, sensitivity to hot or cold water or a darkening tooth. In the past root canal therapy was unpleasant. Gladly, thanks to modern dentistry you don’t have to fear root canals anymore. At Fred Stange and our Midtown Manhattan dental office you will be surprised how comfortable modern root canal therapy can be.
Each tooth is like a small organism. It has canals running through a pulp that provides nourishment to your teeth. Naturally, canals can get damaged either by a cavity or a tooth fracture, and the pulp may get infected and die. Caught early the dentists at our Midtown Manhattan office can perform root canal and prevent damage on time. The procedure at Fred Stange is simple: cleaning out the canals, filling them in and putting a custom crown atop to give you that perfect smile. Worrying about pain is pointless because root canal can be done under sedation if uncomfortable. You can discuss your comfort level with our experienced dentists and ensure quick and painless procedure. Also, our Midtown Manhattan dental office will work with you to discuss and give you the best root canal treatment you deserve. Root canal procedures can be done in a day.
