If you are suffering with tooth pain, you should make an appointment to immediately come in to see our dentist so that he can determine the exact reason for this problem.

After assessing your situation, our dentist will let you know if you will need to have a root canal treatment, and if so, whether it can be performed in one or two office visits. Root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. Additionally, patients at our office are able to have a root canal treatment while they remain perfectly comfortable due to our use of modern local anesthetics.

Root canals are synonymous with pain. This condition can lead to a lot of discomfort and many people believe that a root canal procedure is painful, but living with the condition is even more so. A root canal infection can have dire consequences, affecting your gums, surrounding teeth and even the jawbone. Since this condition is an infection of the nerve end of the tooth, any contact is painful and makes eating and drinking incredibly difficult and excruciating. If you have any tooth pain, or sudden unusual symptoms, it is important that you make an appointment at our Foxboro dental office right away. Dr. Arkady Naiman is here at Advanced Dental Care to address any of your dental needs, pinpoint the cause of any pain or discomfort, and treat it with the utmost care.

There are plenty of symptoms that may indicate you have an infected tooth root. You may begin to experience a constant headache and/or aching from the area of the infection that comes and goes or persists. You may also feel pain when eating or drinking hot or cold foods or drinks at the site of the infection. Additionally, you may notice an increased sensitivity in general, whether it is while eating, when air hits the spot in your mouth, or throughout the day. It is extremely important that you schedule an appointment with us here at Advanced Dental Care at the first signs of any of these symptoms. The sooner your root canal infection is treated, the better. If this is left untreated, you will undoubtedly experience more, persistent and increased pain and risk the spread of infection to other areas of the mouth. Upon your visit here at our Foxboro dental office, Dr. Naiman will thoroughly examine your mouth to assess the situation. Upon executing the procedure, you will be given a local anesthesia to help numb the pain and lessen discomfort. Dr. Naiman will then remove the infected pulp and inflamed tissue. He will then begin smoothing the cavity in the center of the tooth before filling. This filling will prevent any future decay.

Each situation is different and depends on the patient. Here at Advanced Dental Care, Dr. Naiman is dedicated to treating each patient with individual attention and care in order to bring the best dental care possible. Visit our Foxboro dental office at the first sign of any painful or unusual symptoms to preserve your health and wellbeing today.

In life, there are cavities, and then there are cavities. While much of the time cavity-causing bacteria are only able to penetrate the harder outer layers of your teeth (the enamel and dentin), and therefore only need a simple filling, if decay is allowed to get out of control, germs can make it all the way to the soft insides of your teeth, which in professional dental parlance is called the “pulp”. When this happens, our Mansfield dentist, Dr. Naiman will likely have to perform what’s known as root canal therapy to alleviate pain and avoid having to extract effected teeth.

If you end up coming into Advanced Dental Care located in Plainville, MA, you can expect an experience similar to getting a filling; only it will probably take a little longer. First off, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Next, our expert Mansfield dentist Dr. Naiman will use a drill to open an access port in your enamel and dentin that will enable him to reach the pulp with another set of tools. Once the access port is open, the actual root canal begins. Using a set of progressively larger files, Dr. Naiman will scrape out the inside of your damaged tooth, all the way down to the insides of the roots that hold the tooth in your jawbone. Finally, once everything is clean, he’ll finish up by filling up the space and, if necessary, installing a crown for added strength. Soon enough, you’ll be out of the chair and on your way out of the door. (In a week or so, you’ll come in again for a follow-up appointment to make sure nothing’s infected.)

The dental team at Advanced Dental Care understand that it’s not all that fun to get a root canal. That being said, as inconvenient as getting a root canal might seem, living with the pain of a severely damaged tooth is no picnic and can cause more extensive dental problems in the future. Having a tooth pulled is less fun still and only performed by our Mansfield dentist in worst-cased scenarios. Call or use our website to schedule a dental exam posthaste.

When a cavity reaches all the way to the pulp, often due to neglect, root canal treatment or endodontic therapy will be necessary. However, if you schedule regular cleanings and checkups at Advanced Dental Care, our general dentists can often prevent and detect problems early, potentially before decay reaches the nerve of the tooth. In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably have that tooth extracted to avoid it infecting other teeth or causing gum damage. However, with root canal treatment performed by the North Attleboro endodontists at Advanced Dental Care, you can now save your natural teeth even from extreme decay and infection.

When a tooth is weakened from a crack or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp, causing an infection inside the tooth. When left without treatment, the infection can extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone. This is called an abscess, which causes pulp tissue to die. In these cases, the tooth often becomes sensitive to temperature changes, causes pain and gum swelling. Over time, this infection can injure your jawbone and negatively affect your overall health.

Treatment for an infected pulp will require you to visit our endodontist, a dentist who specializes in problems of the pulp. During root canal therapy with our North Attleboro dentists, the disease pulp will be removed and the root canals will be cleaned and sealed to avoid reinfection. A dental crown will be placed over the treated tooth to add support to the remaining tooth structure. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups at Advanced Dental Care, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

If you’re experiencing any of the common symptoms associated with a root canal as mentioned above, please contact Advanced Dental Care in North Attleborough for an appointment.
