Endodontics

Endodontics in Howard Beach, NY

Endodontics focuses on issues that affect the interior of a tooth. When an infection on a tooth is left untreated, it can advance to get inside the tooth, causing more harm. Howard Beach Dental Associates helps save teeth that have suffered pulp damage, infection, or injury. Our endodontists in Howard Beach, NY, are well-trained to perform various endodontic treatments to re-establish a tooth’s function, health, and strength.

When Might an Endodontic Treatment be Performed?

Early treatment makes endodontic treatment to be more successful. It also prevents the danger of losing a tooth completely. People with these symptoms may need endodontic treatment:

  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Pain in the tooth, including the gums
  • Swelling of the tooth
  • Visible injury of a tooth

The kind of treatment our endodontists near you offer, by and large, depends on the cause of pulp damage. There could be an infection, or it may be a case of pulp injury. At Howard Beach Dental Associates, we offer these endodontic services:

Root Canal Treatment – We clean the pulp canals and fill and seal them for enhanced protection. Root canal treatment removes the infection or affected pulp tissues to reinstate the tooth’s health and function.

Managing Traumatic Injuries – Accidents, sports, and other things can cause traumatic dental injuries. In knocked-out teeth, the dentist tries to re-insert them back into the sockets. Crowing the teeth helps put together the fractured pieces. For chipped teeth, a tooth-colored filling may be provided.

Root Canal Retreatment – After receiving your root canal, you expect that the tooth will heal and there will be no more infection or inflammation in the pulp. The infection may arise if bacteria find their way inside the tooth again. Retreatment may thus be needed.

Endodontic Surgery – When a nonsurgical root canal treatment doesn’t save a tooth, our endodontists may recommend surgery. You don’t need to fret about the surgery because today’s advances in dentistry allow the procedure to be done comfortably, quickly, and successfully.
