Getting to the Root of the Problem

Root canals have a bad reputation, but they are actually very beneficial to those who need them. The process itself is not nearly as painful as it’s made out to be. In fact, the most painful part is usually the infected root itself, and a root canal relieves the pain.

Our dentist may suggest a root canal because:

  • An infection of the tooth has or is on the verge of infecting the jawbone
  • There is significant swelling around the infected tooth
  • You have extreme hot or cold sensitivity
  • There is infected, dead, or decaying tooth matter

Our knowledgeable Bethpage dentist will be able to examine the specifics of your dental health and suggest the most appropriate treatment to solve the problem, whether that may be a root canal, crown, filling, or something else. Dr. Jay Augenstein’s years of experience have taught him to think outside the box and tailor treatment to each individual, rather than using a cookie-cutter approach to dentistry.

If you have any pain or sign of an infection, we encourage you contact Augenstein Family Dentistry.
