We have been providing dental care to the Eastchester and surrounding Westchester communities for more than 25 years. At our practice you will received exemplary patient care, and enjoy outstanding aesthetic results from the treatments of our Eastchester oral surgeon. If you are told by Dr. Blau, that you do indeed need a root canal, let us assure you that you do not need to have any worries! Today, root canal treatment is painless and highly-effective. The only reason our dentist will perform a root canal treatment is to save the life of a tooth. If your tooth becomes infected due to bacteria entering the tooth through a crack in the tooth or filling, the root canal procedure will keep the tooth from getting worse. If left untreated, the tooth can become so overtaken by infection that it needs to be removed as it can no longer be saved; tooth removal will also need to be done to keep gums and jaw bone healthy.
Our Eastchester oral surgeon will need to access the pulp in the center of the tooth, and remove all infected pulp and bacteria. This is done using only local anesthesia. You will not feel any discomfort due to the great advances in dental medicines and procedures. Once the pulp and bacteria are removed, the area in the tooth is then sealed to keep any decay from reentering the tooth. Finally, our dentist will most likely need to fit you for a beautiful new porcelain crown; the crown will restore the tooth to its full function. In fact, your tooth will be as strong as it was before, and you will be able to eat anything you desire. Also, the dental crown will be made to exactly match the color of the surrounding teeth, so no one will be able to detect that you have a dental crown in your mouth. And, of course, you will feel much better as your tooth pain will be completely gone. If you have been having tooth pain, make an appointment today to visit our practice soon. Dr. Blau and our staff look forward to welcoming you into our dental care family.
