Treating an Abscessed Tooth

A tooth abscess is nothing to take lightly. It is literally an infection inside of a tooth, and it can lead to a multitude of complications if it is not treated. As you’ll learn from this video, the treatment for an abscessed tooth is a root canal.

Despite their reputation, root canals are generally painless and only require one to three visits to your dentist, depending on the severity and complexity of the infection. Teeth restored by a root canal can last just as long as the rest of your teeth, but untreated teeth will inevitably be lost.

For more information about treating damaged teeth or for cosmetic dentistry services such as teeth whitening in Manhattan, contact the office of Dr. Charles Marks, D.D.S. and Associates. Call (212) 279-1232 to schedule an appointment, or visit our website for more information today.
