A number of patients report having a bit of worry or anxiety when they are told they need a root canal. Unfortunately, the bad reputation of root canals being painful is one that has been difficult to overcome though the procedure actually relieves the pain caused by the tooth’s damaged nerve and pulp. Throbbing pain as well as sensitivity to hot or cold may be symptoms of an infected dental nerve that requires a root canal, which is required and designed to retain the integrity of your natural tooth while address the cause of your pain. Today’s modern methodologies have also reduced the amount of time and visits required to complete the process in some cases. Stacey P. Blau, DDS has extensive experience in administering Eastchester root canals and helping patients find immediately relief from their discomfort.
During your preliminary examination, Stacey P. Blau, DDS will confirm the necessity for any Eastchester root canals and thoroughly explain the process before beginning. The information presented here is only an overview and the details of your specific root canal may vary. Typically, your root canal will begin with Dr. Blau isolating the tooth receiving the procedure. Once the area has responded to local anesthesia, your tooth will be cleaned out of debris as well as the problematic root and dental pulp. Following the thorough cleansing of this area, the tooth will need to be sealed and next steps may differ by patient. If any follow up appointments, medication or other course of action is required, Dr. Blau will provide detailed instructions.
Patients usually report almost immediate relief from their symptoms upon completion of Eastchester root canals performed by Stacey P. Blau, DDS. Frequently patients are able to resume their normal activities with perhaps the exception of biting or chewing on the treated tooth for 24 hours. However, we will review any special circumstances with you at the conclusion of your root canal and will encourage your continued twice daily brushing and flossing as soon as you are healed as well as regular dental examination appointments with professional cleanings. We look forward to meeting with you soon to provide you with the root canal and pain relief you need.
