When a tooth suffers an accidental blow from a household fall or an athletic injury, the damage can sometimes extend deeper than the tooth’s enamel layer. In a case where the dentin, pulp or root of the tooth is traumatized you will likely experience severe toothache pain and sensitivity.
In a moment like this you will need to seek emergency care from a qualified endodontist like Dr. Kirti Tewari. The specialist training and experience he has received can quickly assess the severity of the damage to the tooth to help you understand the most effective treatment plan.
Many of these cases of severe dental trauma call for him to perform a root canal. This mode of endodontic therapy is designed to excise the compromised dental structures of the tooth, as well as the enamel layer.
At this point Dr. Kirti Tewari will prepare a dental abutment. This small post will have the structural integrity necessary to support a dental crown. The corresponding dental work will need to be created at an off-site dental lab. Once it has been cemented in place it will fully restore the essential function of the tooth.
If you are in the Bronx, New York, area and you have just suffered a severe dental trauma, you should call 718-547-7570 to seek emergency endodontic treatment at Kirti Tewari Dental PC.
