If you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something hot or cold, you will want to come to see our dentist regarding your tooth problem. This tooth sensitivity to temperatures is generally a sign that you have an infected tooth. When a tooth is infected, or decay has reached the center of the tooth, you will need to have root canal therapy to save the life of the tooth. Our endodontist will be able to provide this therapy for you, which is effective in saving teeth in about 90% of cases. If you would like to meet with our Baltimore dentist, simply come and see us at our dental practice, Allan D. Schulman DDS & Associates.
Dr. Allan D. Schulman has been providing exemplary dental care to our Glen Burnie community for over 22 years. Whenever you have dental pain, it is important that you come in to see our dentist for a checkup. Dental pain can be a sign of a serious tooth problem. If your tooth is infected, the sooner it is treated the more likely it will be that the root canal treatment will be successful. Once our Baltimore dentist has a chance to examine your particular situation, he will be able to tell you the exact cause of the problem and let you know the chances of the root canal therapy being a success. If a tooth needs root canal treatment and it does not receive it, the tooth will either eventually fall out, or need to be extracted. Leaving an infected tooth in the mouth is not only extremely painful, but it can be very threatening to the good health of your other teeth, or even your body.
The root canal therapy that you receive at our office will be done while you remain in total comfort. Our office is state-of-the-art in terms of equipment and procedures used. The comfort and safety of our patients is always our number one priority. During a root canal treatment the injured pulp is removed from the center of the tooth, and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed to keep out any new bacteria. Root canal treatments generally take one visit, however you may need more than one visit depending on your individual situation. Some patients will require a dental crown after the treatment, depending upon how much of the tooth enamel needed to be removed.
