Manhattan Dentist NYCWhen Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha performs a root canal, the first step in the dental procedure is to take an x-ray of the tooth and determine if the tooth is infected. If Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha determines that a root canal procedure is necessary after the x-ray, then Dr. Simkha will perform the procedure.

In order to remove decayed or infected material from the tooth, Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha must first drill a hole into the tooth. Dr. Simkha then cleans decayed and infected material from the tooth. Dr. Simkha cleans the ooth throughout the procedure to ensure that all infected and decayed materials are removed.

After completely cleaning the infected tooth, Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha will seal the tooth. Dependign on how severe the infection was, Dr. Simkha may be able to seal the tooth the same day, or you may have to visit Dr Yelena Simkha at her Midtown Manhattan dental office at a later date to complete the procedure.

After filling sealing the tooth, Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha can also fill the tooth and further restore the tooth cosmetically. Teeth requiring root canal are usually heavily infected and decayed, so the infected teeth may need extra protection after a root canal for protection.
