If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something hot or cold, you may have a tooth that is infected in its interior. If this is the case, your tooth will need to have a root canal treatment. If an infected tooth does not have root canal therapy, the tooth will get worse until it eventually falls out on its own. However, since it is dangerous to leave an infected tooth in your mouth, it is most likely that the tooth will need to be extracted. If you have a tooth that is causing you pain, you will want to come to our dental practice, Mark D. Orenshein DDS. If it is determined that you need to have a Chelsea root canal, our dentist will be able to perform this procedure for you.

A root canal procedure is performed for one reason only – to save the life of the tooth. Our dentist is able to provide this important service if it is determined that you have a tooth that is severely infected, or has damaged pulp. The pulp are the nerves that are found in the center of the tooth. During a root canal procedure, the affected pulp is removed, and the tooth and root canal system are cleaned and then sealed. This should hopefully keep any new bacteria out after the Chelsea root canal is completed. Once our dentist has had a chance to review your particular situation, he will be able to let you know whether the root canal treatment can be completed in one or two visits.

A Chelsea root canal is effective in saving the life of the tooth in about 90% of cases. Once your individual cases assessed, our dentist will probably know what the odds are of a root canal being effective in saving your tooth. At our practice, we perform root canals on anterior, premolar, and molar teeth. We use state-of-the-art rotary root canal technology. This technology allows our doctor to minimize the number of office visits needed. It also allows the patient to have a more comfortable and predictable root canal experience. At our practice, the safety and comfort of our patient is always our number one concern. If you would like an appointment to meet with our dentist because you have a painful tooth, or for another dental need, contact us today.
