Root Canals at Cincinnati, OH

Toothaches are a vivid reminder that teeth aren't just pieces of hard tissue floating around in the gums. They are intricately formed sensory organs with layers of dentin and enamel protecting a living pulp. Coursing through the tooth's pulp is a vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels, providing nutrients and sensation to each tooth. As long as the pulp stays healthy, you're rarely aware of the systems at work.

   

Tooth pain can be especially alarming, but 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 bundle. In some cases, a significant infection, called an abscess, may develop in your jaw without any symptoms at all. If Dr. Manju R. Kejriwal determines that the nerve won't recover or if an infection is present, then root canal therapy may be suggested.

Modern anesthetics provide powerful numbing for the 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 function.

Are Root Canals 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 false theories put forward decades ago without any scientific basis. One popular Facebook article sounding a false alarm shakily rests on a 100-year-old study tossed aside long ago.

The American Association of Endodontists stays abreast of all research and can support the safety of this vital service. New techniques and materials make root canal treatment more successful than ever.

As far as Dentists and Doctors Go- I'm not a big fan, but I have to admit when I chose Mk Dentistry for my situation it was one of the best decisions I've ever made I visited MK and two other dental Facilities and after discussing my situation (I had lost about half my teeth) with all three, I chose MK Dental Excellence. I needed extraction, Fillings, A crown, Bone grafts and Implants. Dr. Kejriwal, Tina and Dawn and the entire staff are all proffessionals that I completely trust. Now I can eat without pain and discomfort and people tell me I don't look half bad, Thanks for the Great Job, MK

I have been a patient for over 2 years after trying to find a local dentist who takes my insurance. I found them through 1-800-Dentist. The people working there are professional yet kind and truly concerned about the care given me. They are the finest group of professionals it has been my pleasure to be their client., The doctor is most pleasant and takes her time with me and takes personal care of my dental issues and she does not hurt you, which is also important. The procedure they did for me on my gums was done with patience and professionalism and they "truly care" about this patient. It is truly the best dental experience I have had and I will continue to let them take care of me! The people working there that I have had the pleasure of being their patient are the "BEST".
