Do you have a severe toothache that’s keeping you up at night? You may have an infection hidden deep below the surface of your tooth in the inner chamber. If this is the case, you’ll likely require root canal therapy in Long Beach, NY to treat and preserve your damaged tooth. Although this procedure has a daunting reputation, you don’t have to worry about it being painful, because we utilize the latest technology and techniques to make it as fast and comfortable as possible.
The procedure is relatively straightforward and typically takes place over the course of two appointments. During the first, Dr. Benny Tong will gain access to your tooth and remove the infected pulp that’s causing you pain. He will sanitize the area and rebuild the structure of the tooth using a substance called gutta percha. After collecting a digital impression of your tooth, your first appointment will be done. During your second appointment, Dr. Tong will place a custom-crafted dental crown over your treated tooth. This will allow you to use it like you normally would without worrying about sustaining additional damage or sensitivity.
