Our goal is to preserve your smile and use as much prevention dentistry as possible before treatment is needed. If at all possible, we will preserve your tooth and help strengthen it to last for years to come. A root canal is very effective in saving a tooth from extraction. When a cavity is found, and the decay has spread into the pulp of the tooth, a root canal is needed to rid all decay and infection so that the tooth doesn’t get any worse.
For a root canal treatment, your dentist will ensure that you are comfortable and the area around the tooth is numbed and ready before beginning. Your dentist will then carefully remove all decay from the tooth and the pulp of the tooth. Once the root canal treatment is complete, your dentist will seal the tooth with a filling or dental crown giving you a fully functioning restored tooth. Root canal treatment is a great way to preserve your tooth and avoid extraction. If you are in need of a root canal in New York City, call our office today to set up a consultation!
