Illustration Of Root Canal TreatmentGetting a root canal in White Plains, NY or Mt. Kisco, NY has a reputation. But having a reputation doesn’t mean you’ve earned it. Many patients report that a toothache before the procedure is much worse than the actual root canal treatment. During a root canal, your endodontists, Dr. Kolnick, Dr. Diamond, Dr. Hope, and Dr. Svetcov have options that allow you to relax and experience little to no discomfort during the procedure.

Why Save Your Tooth With A Root Canal?

Although a tooth extraction might be quicker in the short-term, you have to think long-term when it comes to your teeth. Your natural teeth function more effectively than implants. Missing teeth can make your other teeth shift and ruin your smile. Your ability to chew may be affected by missing teeth. Saving your natural tooth is always the best option.

If you do have the tooth extracted with a bridge or implant, you will be required to make more appointments. These procedures will take time and money. Other teeth in your mouth may need treatment and support when you have implants or bridges. Long-term, it’s much better to save your tooth both for aesthetic reasons and for your budget. Once the procedure is completed, no one should ever notice that you had a root canal. A missing tooth is quite noticeable.

Signs that You Might Need Root Canal Treatment

When you have severe tooth pain during chewing or when pressure is applied, you should talk to an endodontist in White Plains, NY or Mt. Kisco, NY about treatment. An X-ray will be required to determine if there is damage to the surrounding bone and any infection in your mouth. You may also experience:

  • Prolonged sensitivity to cold or hot
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums
  • Persistent pimple on the gums
