If you have a tooth with damaged internal structures, you may experience symptoms ranging from: occasional sensitivity to hot and cold foods, to constant throbbing or a dull ache, to pain on chewing. In this cace you may benefit from root canal therapy. Also called endodontics, root canal therapy can restore your tooth to its state of health by treating the damaged part of your tooth.
Dr. Yelena Vaysman uses one of the most technologically advanced root canal systems. With this system, most of the time she can start and finish your root canal in one appointment! The rotary system and computerized apex locator, that she use makes your appointment a lot more relaxing and the outcomes more successful.
We highly recommend placing a crown on posterior teeth which have undergone root canal treatment as with the removal of pulp and blood supply, tooth becomes brittle and is more prone to cracking with heavy bite forces.
In some complicated cases Dr. Vaysman refers patients to the endodontic specialist.
In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
