If you are looking for an expert dental practice that will be able to provide you with a wide range of dental services you will want to become a member of our dental practice family at our practice, Dennis Block. We are very happy to have four expert dentists available to provide you with exemplary dental care. Our dentists are: Dr. Dennis S. Block; Dr. Alan Block; Dr. Tsevetelina Kauffman; and Dr. Iyman Elashmawy. Should you need endodontics care in the form of a Ridgewood root canal we hope you will contact our office for excellent treatment.
At our dental practice we offer exemplary care in the areas of preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We offer endodontic treatment in the form of root canals for many patients as well. A root canal treatment is performed for one reason and one reason only -- to save the life of a tooth. If a tooth becomes infected this is the treatment that can likely save the tooth. Root canal treatments are effective in well over 90% of the cases. However, sometimes root canal treatments do need to be redone. Once our dentist is able to assess your individual situation he or she will be able to give you a very good estimation as to what you can expect from your Ridgewood root canal therapy.
During a Ridgewood root canal our dentist will gain access to the center of your tooth. All of the infected pulp will be removed, the area will be thoroughly cleansed, and the tooth will be resealed to make sure no bacteria can enter the tooth. If you have an infected tooth but do not have a root canal treatment, you will definitely lose the tooth. Either the tooth will end up falling out on its own or will become so infected and painful that the dentist will have to extract the tooth. Unless an infected tooth is treated it will never get better by itself. This is why it is always wise to come in to our practice for root canal treatment as soon as possible. If you have a painful tooth, or a tooth that is very sensitive to heat or cold, you may well need a root canal treatment. A tooth can become infected when it has a crack in it, or a filling is damaged. Bacteria can enter the tooth in either of these two ways and create infection. The sooner a root canal is performed the more likelihood there is of the tooth making a full recovery. For an appointment with our dentist contact us today.
