Root canal therapy may be one of the most dreaded treatments in dentistry, but the procedure itself is painless compared to the discomfort of an aching tooth. So, the next time you are experiencing a terrible toothache, do not delay the treatment you need out of fear — schedule an appointment for root canal therapy in Bohemia, NY as soon as possible.
Dr. Makadia has been performing Root Canal Treatments for more than 30 years. To begin root canal therapy, Dr. Makadia will evaluate the damage to plan the best treatment possible. After a local anesthetic has been applied for your complete comfort, he will open the tooth and remove the decayed pulp and infection. Then, he will complete the procedure by sealing the tooth with a filling or topping it with a sturdy post and dental crown. Dr. Makadia believes in clearing the infection to the tip of the root and filling it to avoid further decay and seepage of bacteria. This helps to preserve the root canalled tooth for many years.
Once your root canal therapy is complete, you will need to maintain excellent oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Brush for two minutes twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist as recommended to maintain your oral health now and for years to come!
