Endodontics (Root Canals)

A Root Canal removes infections that cause toothaches.

Endodontics (root canals) (removes bacteria from inside ieeth) comes from the Greek words for inside (endo) and tooth (dontics). Our Flushing Queens NY endodontist performs comfortable root canal therapy to remove bacteria from inside the tooth, alleviating pain and preventing the need for extraction. Modern technology and comfort amenities allow our endodontist to complete root canal therapy in a single visit to our Flushing dental office.

Infected Teeth

The inside of the tooth can become infected due to injury (crack or break) or a large cavity or faulty filling. Although a root canal may not sound like fun, it will actually relieve the pain caused by the disease-ridden tooth. During a root canal, the endodontists cleans out the inside of the tooth and fills it with a biologically inert substance. If necessary, we may recommend topping the tooth with a crown for maximum strength and beauty.

Root Canals vs. Extractions

Some people think that extraction is a viable alternative to root canal treatment. If the tooth is extracted, it will have to be replaced with a prosthetic. Although we provide lifelike solutions to missing teeth, nothing compares to the real thing. Saving your natural tooth is always the best option. Ninety-five percent of root canalsare performed successfully, so there’s nothing to fear!
