At North Bellmore Dental Associates P.C., we keep pace with the latest advances in care and strive to provide a stress-free dental healthcare experience at every visit. When you visit our office for a Merrick root canal procedure, you can expect gentle, precise and compassionate care from a skilled and experienced dentist.
Root canal therapy, also referred to as endodontic treatment, addresses damage that lies beneath the outermost biting surfaces of the teeth, within the core tissues, blood vessels and nerves, which comprise the dental pulp. When a tooth has been compromised by injury or decay, the pulp can become irritated and irreversible damage to the tooth’s nerve supply can occur. If left untreated, bacteria can also seep into the area to produce an infection, which can lead to further consequences to your health and well-being. Signs of an infection may include sensitivity to temperature, pain when biting down, persistent discomfort as well as fever and swelling. If you have a toothache, call our office immediately for care. Our dentist will promptly perform an examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed, to diagnose the cause of your symptoms and determine if you need a Merrick root canal procedure or other treatment as indicated. With a root canal procedure, we can successfully alleviate oral pain, resolve an infection and help to preserve your natural tooth in the dental arch. Once your root canal is complete, we often recommend restoring your tooth with a customized, natural looking dental crown.
If you need a Merrick root canal treatment, it’s important to find a dentist who will personalize treatment to accommodate your individual needs.
