No one wants to deal with tooth pain, so why wouldn’t you want to get that sort of pain treated? It is imperative that you visit a dentist as soon as you experience any kind of tooth aches or pains, as this is often the first sign of a serious dental condition such as tooth decay or an infected tooth root. Root canal infections can be treated with several different treatments, but which one you need will depend on the severity of your infection. If the infection is not too widespread, we here at Michael J Weiss & Associates can perform root canal therapy, but if too much of the tooth has been compromised then you may need Queens teeth extractions.
Here at Michael J Weiss & Associates, we can provide treatment for a variety of different dental ailments. Usually, the presence of a tooth ache or experiencing any kind of tooth pain means that there is decay. As a tooth decays, it eats away at the tooth itself. If this infection gets far into the tooth, it can cause a root canal infection which can cause the nerve ending located there to radiate sharp pain and immense discomfort. If you want to alleviate this pain and if you want to improve your dental health, then you should visit us here at Michael J Weiss & Associates if you are experiencing any such symptoms. Here at Michael J Weiss & Associates, we can provide you with root canals or Queens tooth extractions. If the issue is caught early on enough, we can perform root canal therapy, which can salvage the tooth but still treat the problem. Inflamed tissue, portions of decayed tooth and the infected root pulp will all be surgically removed. From there, the cavity left behind can be filled in and you may additionally require a dental crown. If too much of the tooth has suffered from decay, however, the entire tooth will need to be removed.
If you have any tooth pain, it is imperative that you see a dentist right away. Call us here at Michael J Weiss & Associates to schedule a root canal or a tooth extraction that you may need in order to turn your dental health around and alleviate your pain.
