Root canal infections can be difficult to deal with, and they can also be painful. In order to treat these specific oral conditions, root canal therapy and other procedures are implemented in order to resolve the problem and restore health. However, root canal procedures are not always successful. If you have a Lynbrook NY root canal or if you have recently undergone root canal surgery that has been unsuccessful, then our dental team here at Kenneth Berger, DDS & Associates can tell you more about treatment and can provide you with additional procedures and care.
A root canal infection is an infection that is located at the very center of a tooth. This makes the cavity much more difficult to deal with, plus since the nerve ending is located at the center of the tooth, these types of infections can also be incredibly painful. The main goal of treating cavities like these is to salvage as much of the tooth as possible, so the tooth does not need to be removed. However, because of the location of the infection, achieving this can be difficult. The first procedure implemented in treating an infected root canal is root canal therapy. If root canal therapy is not successful in removing all aspects of the infection, further surgeries and treatments can be applied. Our dentists at Kenneth Berger, DDS & Associates can perform other treatments like apicoectomies or root end resections to tackle the infection further without having to remove the entire tooth in order to get to the infection. Lynbrook NY root canal treatment can vary from person to person, but Dr. Berger is here to provide the best care around.
If you have a root canal infection, whether it has already undergone surgery or not, our dentists here at Kenneth Berger, DDS & Associates can provide you with a comprehensive care that you need in order to treat a Lynbrook NY root canal infection.
