With a high success rate (typically over 90%), as well as the benefit of advanced technology that has made the procedure a comfortable and virtually pain-free one, we at Pelham Bay Dental Associates confidently stand behind our Westchester Square root canal. And with just a few simple guidelines for follow-up care, you can maximize the chances of having no problems or complications. With proper attention, there is no reason that your tooth that has had root canal cannot be just as durable and long-lasting as any other tooth you have.
Our Westchester Square root canal make take one or more sessions to complete. Some teeth have multiple canals, and so our deliberate and gentle treatment will take additional time to ensure that everything is done with thorough precision. Because it is necessary for the tooth to be drilled down from the top in order to gain access to the base, where the injured pulp and nerve are located, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to protect your tooth between visits. The first thing to do regarding follow-up care is to see your restorative dentist to have a permanent crown made. Impressions will be taken and sent to a dental lab so that your new crown will seamlessly fit and restore the healed tooth to full size and functionality. We highly recommend that you brush twice per day and floss before bed every day to keep that tooth clean, which will help avoid a secondary infection. If you, for any reason, notice visible swelling, an uneven bite, pain that lasts for more than a few days, or any of the same symptoms that led you to need our Westchester Square root canal in the first place, do not hesitate to reach out to us for guidance.
