At Chittenango Family Dental, our highest priority is making sure you keep your natural teeth whenever possible. Dr. Badawy is an expert in performing root canal therapy, a straightforward procedure designed to give your natural tooth a second chance. Since most people would prefer to avoid a tooth extraction when they can, we’ll make sure that your treatment is as comfortable and successful as possible. Our dental office also provides same-day crowns, so you can get your tooth restored the same day as your root canal treatment. To give your tooth a second chance, contact our dental office to schedule an appointment!
Root canal therapy is intended to remove decay, bacteria and infected tissue from teeth and the root canal. If a patient doesn’t practice proper oral hygiene and decay develops past the enamel and dentin layers of teeth, it can reach the vulnerable pulp and nerve tissue located at the center.
Contrary to popular belief, the treatment itself does not cause discomfort. In reality, allowing the infection to spread and develop results in more pain if left untreated. Dr. Badawy numbs the tooth and surrounding tissue with a local anesthetic to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
