Root Canal Treatment in Newburgh, NY

All The Facts About Root Canal

Sometimes, an infection, damage, or extensive exposure can affect a tooth’s inner soft pulp to such an extent that it causes persistent severe pain. In order to stop the pain and save the tooth, the unhealthy pulp must be removed by a dental professional through a procedure called a root canal. Today, it’s become a very common way to relieve this type of problem and prevent further pain or suffering.

When Is a Root Canal Recommended?

If a tooth’s pulp is damaged, it’s not capable of repairing itself and must be removed by this procedure. It’s the only way to rescue the tooth. Luckily, the signs that you need the treatment are usually very clear. These are the most common symptoms you may experience:

  • Continual moderate to major tooth pain.
  • Sudden sensitivity to extremes in temperature and touch.
  • Deep tooth pain that prevents you from sleeping.
  • Discomfort when biting on affected tooth.
  • Tooth discoloration.
  • Advanced case of cavities.
  • Red, sore, and swollen gum tissue surrounding the affected tooth.

What Types of Dentists Perform Root Canal in Newburgh?

The pain-relieving procedure can be performed by a general dentist, but more advanced cases may require a specialist known as an endodontist. It is best to consult with an endodontist if the problem is very complex or prior treatment was not successful. You don’t need to look far to find an outstanding root canal dentist near you because they’re at our practice. Call our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our experts.

What Can I Expect During the Root Canal Procedure?

Though it sound like a major procedure, the treatment is rather straightforward and can be completed in around an hour or two. The following eight steps are performed in most cases:

  1. The affected tooth will be numbed by your root canal dentist to prevent any pain.
  2. The tooth will be kept clean and away from debris with a tiny shield.
  3. In the tooth’s crown, an opening will be made to allow your dentist to have complete access to the pulp.
  4. Your dentist will remove the infected pulp and the tooth’s root canals will be cleaned and shaped.
  5. The canals will be cleaned to eliminate any debris any remaining debris.
  6. Your dentist will fill the canals with a special material.
  7. The canals will be sealed.
  8. Then, the dentist will place a root canal crown over the tooth to prevent it from breaking or chipping.

What’s the Average Root Canal Cost?

When it comes to cost, this can vary by a few important factors. These include the extent of the damage to the tooth, as well as the materials required for the procedure, and the site of the tooth in the mouth because its location determines its number of roots that may need repair. The less complex the procedure, the less it will cost. A final factor in the price is whether it requires a general dentist or a specialized endodontist for treatment. Your dental insurance may be able to contribute the cost if the treatment is covered by your plan. To get an idea of what your treatment will cost and whether your insurance offers any coverage, schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists for a thorough examination and an estimate of your cost. Call us for an appointment today.

Are There Different Kinds of Root Canals?

The treatment has proven to be effective on any tooth at any age, but it is most often needed on the molars. While the standard treatment is usually performed, there are some alternatives available for specialized cases. One of these alternatives is called apicoectomy and it involves removing the tip of the root of the tooth if the standard treatment was not successful. Another alternative is a pediatric pulpotomy that just removes the inner infected pulp of the tooth but doesn’t touch the nerve.

Is Dental Root Canal Treatment Painful?

While root canal is widely assumed to be a painful procedure, it is actually virtually pain free. This is because your dentist will use local anesthesia throughout the surgery to keep you completely comfortable. Afterward, if you experience any degree of soreness or pain, contact our office immediately so we can provide a remedy for your discomfort and treat any other problems before they become worse.
