ROOT CANALS

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT IN PLANTATION, FL

Toothaches provide a vivid reminder that teeth aren’t just inert pieces of hard tissue floating in the gums. Instead, they’re intricately formed parts with layers of hard substances overlaying a delicate core. Coursing through the tooth’s center, this vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels provides nutrients and sensation to each tooth. As long as the tooth stays healthy, you’re rarely aware of the systems at work.

But pain rapidly changes your awareness in any part of the body. Tooth pain can be especially alarming, and it’s meant to warn you that something’s not right. Pain tells us that the bundle of nerves and vessels inside your tooth is irritated, damaged, or under attack.

A deep cavity can give bacteria access to the inner nerve

A deep cavity can give bacteria access to the inner nerve bundle. A crack extending into the same region can create stress that will need additional care to relieve. In some cases, a significant infection may develop in your jaw without any symptoms at all. If Dr. Rizvi determines that the nerve won’t recover or infection is present, then root canal treatment may be suggested.

Modern anesthetics provide powerful numbing for gentle removal of the inflamed nerve inside the tooth. The nerve canal undergoes disinfection and careful shaping, and a sealer fills the internal space. A filling or crown over the tooth helps return the tooth to its original condition.

BUT ARE THEY SAFE?

Internet articles continue to circulate claiming adverse health effects from root canals, despite years of research proving otherwise. Many of these claims rest on unsubstantiated theories put forward decades ago without any scientific basis. They’ve been thoroughly debunked by the most credible sources, supported by unbiased research projects. In fact, one popular Facebook article sounding a false alarm shakily rests on a 100-year-old study tossed aside long ago.

Professional organizations routinely review a broad range of research projects throughout the world. The American Association of Endodontists stays abreast of all the current and past research and can clearly support the safety of this vital service. In fact, new techniques and materials make root canal treatment more successful than ever. However, even older methods still hold a proven track record, allowing millions of damaged teeth to continue functioning.

What a wonderful group of professionals! The office is fully equipped with advance technology. The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, very kind and friendly. It made me felt comfortable and at ease. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Karen is super kind and caring, explaining during the the cleaning process - super gentle and pain free. . Dr. Rizvi is really friendly. She took her time to exam, review and explaining in detail when going through 3D with me and just in time a treatment list in detail along with what insurance covers/not cover. They orchestrate the procedure really well - making the visit an extra outstanding and special. Excellent team of doctor and staff. I just recommended my family member for their upcoming visit.

Wonderful group of professionals! The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, and friendly. I felt more comfortable than I ever have at a dentist’s office. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Lisandra and Karen made me feel at ease as they examined and cleaned my teeth. They did such a thorough and amazing job cleaning my teeth and taking care of my gums during each visit. I’m 9 months pregnant and the doctor and staff did an outstanding job making each cleaning and procedure as pain and stress free as possible. They were extremely knowledgeable on what they could or couldn’t do as well. The office manager Roxie made sure to explain in detail what our insurance covered (after finding out my husbands insurance didn’t cover the first cleaning, she still graciously waived the fee). Roxie was very informative when explaining the breakdown of costs of each visit, and other options that we could consider when coordinating our treatments to meet our financial and medical needs. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had a cleaning this morning with Giselle. She is a great, and I think our Spanglish works well to communicate with each other. Haha. I had a wonderful experience, and I also thought, my kid will like their cleaning here because of My Dentist for Life’s new tool. Great technology, no pain and quick!
