Have you received treatment recently for a root canal infection, and yet are experiencing an ache within your tooth in the very same place once again? Root canal infections can be painful ordeal for anyone to go through, and it can be dually painful to be forced to undergo the same ordeal once more. Root canal therapies can actually go awry for a whole host of reasons, as these procedures differ widely from case to case and patient to patient, depending on the cause and extent of the damage. General dentists often focus primarily on the care of the surface of your teeth, and as such are not often specially trained in the needs and intricacies of root canals. When it comes to pain from within, bring your root canal needs to a true professional in the inner-workings of your teeth at your local Monroe oral surgeon from the offices Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
Though root canal complications are uncommon, they do in fact still happen, especially when a case is very complex, or simply when a general dentist is not entirely knowledgeable of the situation they are undertaking. Root canal therapy sounds like a simple procedure, but this necessary treatment for eradicating infections occurring deep within the nerve endings and pulp of your teeth is in fact a form of surgery, and for this reason should be handled by no less than an expert Monroe oral surgeon in order to insure a maximum success rate.
If you are experiencing toothaches in the same site of your previous root canal infection, no matter how little or how much time has passed since this treatment, you should not hesitate to contact your professional Monroe oral surgeon for an appointment to determine if these pains are the sight of a returning or still present infection, to find out if an apicoectomy is right for you. This procedure, also known as root end surgery, works to treat what root canal therapy can in rare cases leave behind. By removing truly the entirety of infected matter, and replacing the infected matter with an artificial tooth root we work to insure that your infection is truly gone for good with no way to return, as artificial fillings cannot become infected.
We understand the anxiety that can accompany a trip to the dentist, let alone a repeated surgery to put a final end to a root canal infection. That’s why our team at your professional Monroe oral surgeon offices of Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial surgery strives to provide you with care that is both gentle and effective. With the latest technology we can keep you as comfortable as possible, and will prescribe the appropriate pain medication to allow your mouth to heal without the ache and pain of a root canal infection.
