Dental Root Canal Treatment West
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures
performed, with well over 14 million performed every year. This
simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the
need for dental implants
At the center of your tooth is pulp, a collection of blood
vessels that helps build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the
pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks
and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the
infection include visible injury or swelling of the tooth,
sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, Dr. Cohen may recommend
non-surgical removal of the injured pulp, followed by thorough
cleaning and sealing of the pulp chamber. Dr. Cohen uses local
anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. We can also provide nitrous
oxide to relax you for the procedure.
After your root canal is done, a crown or other restoration
protects your tooth. Contact Dr. Cohen today to determine if
root canal therapy is appropriate for your dental health.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the
Dr. Cohen works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of
teamwork. One of the ways he brings this about is through the
use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera. This amazing
device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup
picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself
what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You
then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love
how this works!
Defeat Gum Disease Painlessly
Gum Disease Treatment West Palm
The main cause for tooth loss is not decay – it's periodontal
(gum) disease! Dr. Cohen is pleased to offer his patients a
powerful weapon in the fight against gum disease. It's called
ARESTIN™. It comes in powder form and contains very tiny
microspheres that are not visible to the eye. These microspheres
deliver a time-released antibiotic directly to the site of the
infection (the spaces between the gums and teeth). ARESTIN kills
the bacteria that cause gum disease. The best part is that it's

Headaches and Jaw Pains!
TMJ/TMD Dentistry West Palm Beach
Did you know that dental occlusion (i.e. your bite) is sometimes
the cause of frequent headaches, aching or popping jaws,
shoulder pain, and neck pain? If your teeth have been ground
down over the years or lost due to accident or dental disease,
your jaw is not able to settle into a naturally relaxed
position. This causes tension in the muscles in the jaw, and can
lead to a variety of pain that you may have already grown
accustomed to living with. By restoring your dental occlusion,
the jaw can be returned to the position that nature intended.
This highly technical procedure, known as a full mouth
rehabilitation, is available in our office. If you have been
