The word “root canal” strikes fear in the hearts of men and women, but here at Complete Healthy Dentistry of West New York, we have a specialist in that field. His name is Dr. Michael Altman. Dr. Michael Altman is a board certified endodontist.
He has been doing this for decades. He’s gentle, he’s kind, and what we find is this: That people, when they hear the word “root canal,” they don’t understand what it’s about.
Most people don’t understand that they came in in pain, and they left being relieved of this pain. And people get that confused. They think that they came in without pain, they had the root canal, and they left with pain.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, they came in with pain, and they left without. And here at Complete Healthy Dentistry of Western New York, we are very proud of Dr. Michael Altman and his years of service, and relieving the pain that people have with infected teeth.

We Can Save Your Diseased Tooth With a Root Canal
Saying the word “root canal” instantly creates a negative image in the minds of those around you. Regardless of how this treatment became so feared, getting a root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled.
On the contrary, if you have a diseased tooth that is causing you a great deal of pain, a root canal will stop that pain and, in most cases, preserve your tooth from needing extraction.
Root canal treatment is usually needed when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected. This infection can be caused by an untreated cavity or some type of trauma to the tooth that lets bacteria into it. When a tooth becomes diseased, you can be miserable.
Your dentist here at Complete Health Dentistry of WNY can help. Dr. Altman will:
- Use special tools to remove the infected pulp
- Sterilize the inner part of the tooth with medication
- Fill the tooth with a rubber-like material that helps prevent reinfection
To finish off your tooth repair, we can make you a new crown to cap the tooth. Using the CAD/CAM technology of either our CEREC or E4D system, we can custom craft the crown while you wait. It will strengthen the tooth and restore virtually 100 percent of your biting and chewing power.
Buffalo root canals will help you feel better, not worse! Call us today to schedule your appointment: 716-272-1257.
