If you have pain in your tooth when you eat something that is hot or cold, or when pressure is placed upon it, you may have a tooth that needs to have root canal therapy. At our dental practice, Mark Heller DMD, our expert dentist can provide you with a Great Neck root canal to solve your tooth problem.
If the tooth has damaged or infected pulp in its center, the only way the tooth can be saved is with a root canal treatment by one of our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Mark Heller. Our dentist will be able to assess your individual dental situation to determine whether or not you need to have a root canal treatment. During a root canal treatment, all damaged and infected pulp is removed from the center of the tooth. The good news about root canal treatments is that they are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. And our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable and our dentist’s chair due to our use of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and modern dental anesthesia. If a tooth needs to have a root canal treatment but does not receive it, the condition of the tooth will only worsen and the tooth will eventually fall out on its own, and need to be replaced with a dental bridge or dental implant. After the root canal treatment is performed, you will most likely need to get a porcelain crown to protect and strengthen the tooth. You will also want to make sure that you practice excellent oral hygiene to help your tooth to remain healthy and intact in your mouth. Once our dentist examines your particular situation, you will be advised as to whether or not the Great Neck root canal treatment can be completed in one or two office visits.
