Restore the Integrity of Your Smile
At 81st Street Dental, we work to preserve as much natural tooth with root canal therapy. By combining our continued enthusiasm for helping others and our innovative, in-office dental technology, Kathryn E. Beller, DDS, and her team ensure patients receive the best possible treatment.
If you’re experiencing persistent tooth pain or sensitivity, decay and infection may have entered the inner soft tissues of your tooth, and root canal therapy will be necessary to treat it. Contact us to receive a professional diagnosis and resolution.
Root Canal Prevents Tooth Loss
The primary goal of root canal therapy is to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible while preventing extraction. Decay eats away at enamel and creates cavities, which are easily corrected when detected early. If left untreated, the decay can spread to the inner structure, known as the root canal and infect the connective tissues and nerves. Root canal therapy is designed to remove the infection effectively, significantly reducing the need for extraction, and saving the natural tooth. Although many believe this treatment to be invasive and uncomfortable, it’s no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling.
There’s Nothing to Fear with Root Canal Therapy
Dr. Beller and her team understand that dental anxiety and fear can be debilitating, that’s why we take the time to discuss with you the necessary benefits of restorative dentistry and the essential role it plays in long-term oral health. We believe the more educated you are about procedures, the more confident you will be about receiving dental care.
We begin your procedure only when you are numbed and comfortable. Decay and infected pulp are gently removed, then the empty canals are sanitized and filled with an anti-bacterial material that supports inner tooth structure. The treated tooth is then prepared for a custom restoration.
Teeth Restored with Customized Crowns
We provide the highest quality of porcelain crowns to replace any lost dental structure. We can even craft crowns in a single visit with our CEREC machine. This technology eliminates the need for an unreliable, temporary restoration and allows you to obtain a beautiful, natural-looking smile quickly and discreetly. Our crowns are custom designed and made from durable materials like porcelain. With proper care, these crowns can last for many years. Resistant to staining and crafted to be the same shade as existing teeth, crowns provide renewed aesthetics and bite function. Our team takes the time to make sure every crown is as beautiful as possible.
