Root Canal Treatments

root canal treatment

Have you been told you need a root canal? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Millions of teeth are treated each year with endodontic treatments and root canals. Root Canal treatment is necessary when the pulp or the nerve of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This can be caused from repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, a chip or crack in the tooth, a deep cavity, deep decay or injury to the tooth. Infected pulp tissue can cause pain to the mouth or lead to an abscess, which is a collection of pus that has built up within the gum tissue.

What Happens During A Root Canal Procedure?

Most of the time, root canals are very simple procedures with little to no discomfort and are completed in a single visit. During a root canal treatment, our endodontist, Dr. Pastan, removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not completely removed, it can result in pain, swelling and infection.

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
