It is absolutely important that you address any sensations or instances or oral pain and discomfort. Sometimes, these sorts of symptoms can be attributed to things like sensitivity but if your pain and discomfort is persistent then you may very well be suffering from some form of tooth decay. If your pain is particularly strong and bothersome then you may even have an infected root canal. In this case, you may need to see an endodontist for treatment. Here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. our endodontic treatment in Ridgewood can help provide you with all of the treatment and care that you need in order to recover and resolve the issue.
Dental care is important. It is generally recommended that you see your dentist about twice a year or roughly once every six months so that you can get the regular exams and routine preventative care necessary to prevent the likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease. Root canal infections share a lot of symptoms with cavities but tend to be a bit worse. Both conditions are caused by plaque and bacteria buildup that eats away at the tooth enamel and eventually infects it, creating decay and gradual damage. A root canal infection occurs when this decay affects the root of the tooth, infecting the root pulp where the nerve ending is located. This is what causes the generally more intense associated with root canals versus that experienced with cavities. Here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. our endodontic treatment in Ridgewood can treat the issue and alleviate this pain. You will be given an anesthetic prior to the procedure so as to ensure your comfort. From there, our endodontist will remove all inflamed tissue, including the root pulp and nerve ending. Once all decayed parts of the tooth are removed, you may need to return at a later date to ensure the procedure was successful and to have a dental crown put in place.
Root canal infections are serious and if they are not treated the infection will get worse and may spread. If you are in the market for an endodontic treatment in Ridgewood then please call us here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. to book your appointment as soon as possible.
