Root Canal Treatment in the Upper West Side
Bring Your Damaged Teeth Back from the Brink with Exceptional Endodontic Work at Dental Passion
Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?
- Severe dental pain that occurs when applying pressure to a certain tooth or chewing food
- Gums that are red, swollen, or otherwise irritated
- Discoloration (usually darker) of a specific tooth
- Excessive sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, even when the source has been removed
If one or more of these accurately describes the current state of your oral health, you may have one or more teeth that are damaged and/or decayed to the point that they’re dangerously close to needing to be extracted. This can be a difficult time, but don’t despair just yet – at Dental Passion in the Upper West Side, we offer a transformative treatment method that may be able to restore these teeth to full form and function: root canal therapy. With a skilled endodontist on staff, you won’t even have to leave our office! Instead, we can help you retain your natural teeth and even improve their appearance right here in our friendly, warm office space. You’ll be smiling before you know it!
Over the years, root canal treatment has earned a nasty reputation; in fact, many patients still shy away from the procedure when dentists recommend it. The truth is, though, that it’s no more dangerous or painful than other common dental procedures. In fact, it’s a highly effective treatment with an outstanding success rate. During your regular check-up, Dr. Shick or another member of our team will inform you if you have a tooth in need of root canal treatment; sometimes, the symptoms can be mild or even invisible to an untrained eye, which is another reason why it’s important to visit our Upper West Side office regularly.
The process begins with our team of professionals creating a hole through which we can access the affected tooth’s inner chamber. Then, we’ll remove the diseased pulp and bacteria that are causing the infection, thoroughly cleaning the area before sealing it off so as to avoid further issues. Finally, we’ll cap off the area with a custom-made crown so as to restore its full structure. No more pain, no more difficulty – you’ll be amazed by how much better your smile feels once you’re finished!
At Dental Passion, we do our best to live up to our name by providing you with high-quality dental care that’s sure to leave your smile better and brighter than ever. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our team. Our office is located in the Upper West Side at 164 West 96th Street in between Amsterdam Ave and Columbus Ave.
