When getting root canal therapy, or either surgical or non-surgical re-treatment, you are far better off if you get the expert attention that we provide here at Apex Endodontics. Root canal and all treatment related to it represent what we specialize in. These are procedures performed all day, every day. So you can feel confident when it comes to comfort, precision, and successful results.
It’s unfortunate that just the words “root canal” can cause people to become nervous. Our Haverstraw endodontist assures you that the process is nothing to be anxious about. It is done under sufficient local anesthesia to make certain that the area is numb. And with the advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment that we utilize, you can relax. Most of our patients report back that they experienced either no pain at all, or very little. And it is an important treatment, because when put into action to address an infected tooth or one that has suffered trauma, it is the only opportunity available to save the tooth. At least 90% of root canals have a positive outcome. For the rare ones that don’t, there are one of two treatments that our Haverstraw endodontist offers to correct them. Depending on the situation, you may benefit from endodontic re-treatment, which is like doing the root canal over again (though easier). There is also a surgical procedure called an apicoectomy or root end resection. It is crucial to make every reasonable attempt to help you keep your natural teeth. Losing them is cosmetically problematic, and creates functional difficulties, too.
When you have tooth pain, sensitivity to hot or cold drinks, swelling, tooth discoloration, or gum tenderness, you should contact our office to arrange an appointment to come in and see our Haverstraw endodontist. Don’t settle for any less than the best care you can get.
