If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may have a tooth that is infected or damaged in its interior. When you have a toothache, you will want to visit us at our dental practice, Harvey L. Griesner, DDS, where you can be seen by our top-notch general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Harvey L. Griesner. Our dentist will examine your painful tooth and let you know if you will benefit from a Forest Hills root canal treatment.
If you have a tooth which has damaged pulp in the interior, you will need to have a Forest Hills root canal treatment or the tooth will never get better on its own. In fact, this tooth will simply fall, or need to be extracted due to infection and tooth pain. However, if you have a root canal treatment at our practice, your tooth stands a 90% chance of being saved. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed on a damaged tooth, the more likely it is that the treatment will be successful. For this reason, you will want to visit our dentist at the earliest sign of tooth pain. If it is determined that you need to have a root canal treatment, our dentist will be able to perform it for you while you remain perfectly comfortable. Our dentist uses state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to perform root canal therapy, and will provide you with modern anesthesia so you will remain in total comfort. During the root canal procedure, all affected and damaged pulp will be removed from the interior of the tooth. The tooth and root canal system will then be thoroughly cleansed and sealed to prevent additional reinfection. Generally, after a root canal treatment, the patient will need to make plans to get a permanent crown to keep the tooth healthy, infection-free, and strong.
