IF YOU’VE BEEN TOLD THAT YOU NEED A TOOTH EXTRACTION OR ROOT CANAL, you may want to get a second opinion.
A tooth extraction should only be performed if it’s the best option for your overall oral health because when teeth are lost, the bite can be negatively affected.
In some cases, a root canal, or endodontics, can save a tooth from extraction. Staten Island general dentist Dr. Hecht uses advanced technology for precision and patient comfort during root canal therapy. The endodontics procedure involves removing damaged pulp in a tooth and replacing it with manmade substance to reduce the risk of infection.
