Health is what matters most
If one of your teeth is sensitive to hot or cold food or drinks, there is a good chance that there is a deep cavity existing either in contact with or close to a nerve. In situations like this a normal filling may not be enough to stop the pain. Instead, the nerve will have to be eliminated for purpose of reducing sensitivity and to allow for the treatment of the tooth. Without treatment, that cavity can create more significant damage to the tooth, the gums, and the surrounding teeth, so it’s important to reach out for endodontic help immediately.
Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on identifying the cause, diagnosing the treatment and also preventing decay of the dental pulp within the tooth structure. This often involves the removal of the nerve and other tissues of the cavity and their replacement with a filler material.
If you are experiencing pain, sensitivity to cold or heat, or have any other indications that a tooth is in disrepair, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Call our office today for endodontics NYC.
