ROOT CANALS

Susie Shin Dental Care

Often if a tooth is broken, injured, or has a large cavity that has reached the nerve, a root canal in needed to treat the affected tooth.

Even teeth that have been injured years ago can eventually require a root canal due to the nerve slowly dying over time, ultimately causing an infection.

During a root canal, the infected or damaged nerve is cleaned out of the tooth. The area cleaned and sterilized, and the canal is filled with a plastic material. This removes dead tissues, bacteria, infection, and alleviates tooth pain. Over time, a tooth treated with a root canal can become brittle. It is strongly advised to place a crown immediately after a root canal to help prevent the tooth from breaking in the future.

Broken teeth and toothaches are inconvenient and can be extremely painful. Conveniently located in Union Square, Dr. Susie Shin D.D.S., M.A.G.D. offers evening and weekend appointments for unexpected dental emergencies, including root canal treatment.
