Here at Tiba Dental, one of the most common services that our Bay Ridge endodontist provides for our patients is root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is typically used if you have a tooth with an infected pulp. Each of your teeth has a collection of soft tissue at its center called the pulp. If a tooth is severely decayed and damaged, the pulp can then easily be exposed to any bacteria or other harmful substances within your mouth at any given time. As a result, the tooth can be come painfully infected. Some symptoms of an infected pulp include, as previously mentioned, moderate to severe toothache, increased pain when biting down or chewing, increased tooth sensitivity, and in some cases, a discoloration or darkening of the tooth. If you are experiencing any or all of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Bay Ridge endodontist as soon as possible so that we can give you the treatment you need. First, we will discuss your symptoms with you, and examine the current state of your teeth in order to fully understand the situation at hand. The likely treatment in this situation would be root canal therapy. During root canal therapy, our Bay Ridge endodontist will remove the infected pulp, and then carefully clean out the tooth so that there are no lingering bacteria in the area. Then, the tooth will be sealed up in order to prevent any more infections in the future. When you choose Tiba Dental, you can rest assured that you will receive only the highest level of care.
