What is Root Canal Therapy?
Broken and deteriorating teeth are often corrected utilizing a filling or other type of restoration if they are discovered and managed in time. However, if the decay extends to the center of the tooth (also called the pulp), root canal treatment is occasionally required to restore dental function and save the tooth from removal. A root canal is a specialized procedure performed at Concerned Dental Care to remove diseased inner tooth tissue and strengthen the affected tooth to regain dental wellness. Our dental team treats infected or internally decayed teeth with gentle root canal treatment and provides sedation solutions to further increase patient comfort. If you have an extremely painful or abscessed tooth, get in touch with one of our New York City, NY offices today to discover if root canal treatment is right for you.
Are You a Candidate for a Root Canal?
Abscessed tooth pulp may be a result of extreme cavities, a major break, or an accident. We can provide an x-ray and perform an oral assessment to decide if a root canal or other procedure is necessary to relieve tooth discomfort and regain your dental wellness.
Common signs that can indicate the need for a root canal include:
- Sharp or dull toothaches
- Lasting dental discomfort
- Aching while chewing
- Sensitivity to elevated and cold temperatures
- Puffiness around the face or gums
- A large lump on the gum tissues
- Change in the color of a tooth after damage
Concerned Dental Care Reviews
Alexandra was a friendly and efficient receptionist. She made me feel comfortable during the registration process, and I am looking forwarding to finally getting my root canal done after avoiding it.
Was very happy with the root canal, cap and front office Jen everyone and everything was very professionally done. Thank you all Raj
Alexandria at the Mosholu office was so helpful. She was able to book my appointment for me after me calling more then a dozen dentist and even told me she would call me if anyone would cancel there appointment so that I can be seen earlier. I had a situation at my dentist where he wasn’t able to finish my root canal and so I had to get a Endodontist to finish the work that they botched. Thanks again Alexandria for making my day !!

For over twelve years I've been a patient of Concerned Dental's offices. Several accidents and poor care from the VA left my smile broken and crooked but Concerned always saw to my needs and worked diligently with my employer's insurance, even when it changed, to get me the best care and cosmetics. Once, my sinuses were so congested it felt like I needed a root canal. It was a Saturday and they were past closing time but they took me in for x-rays. The DDS reassured and relieved me. Their hygienists are the most meticulous and professional, especially Kristy whose own bright, straight smile reveals she takes her work home with her. She does her best to make sure your smile is just as perfect.

What is The Root Canal Process?
At our New York area offices, we employ innovative methods to enhance your comfort throughout your root canal procedure. Root canals are conducted with local anesthesia and are occasionally offered jointly with sedation to produce further relaxation. Once the tooth is numb, a shield is positioned to block the patient's mouth. The impacted region will then be accessed through a small hole made in the top of the tooth. The pulp, which comprises the nerve center and blood storage inside of every tooth, is then extracted, and the inner canal will be reshaped utilizing special endodontic tools prior to being entirely sanitized. We will then seal the restored tooth with an effective substance and finish it off with an anesthetic filling to promote the recovery process.
What Can I Expect After My Root Canal?
All of the tooth pain you were dealing with before your endodontic therapy should start to ebb away once the root canal is done. Over-the-counter pain medication can be used to minimize any aches or swelling that occurs after your session. We will schedule a check-in session about a month after your treatment so we can assess your recovery. Teeth restored with endodontic therapy are more susceptible to deterioration and may require the shielding properties of a personalized crown as soon as they're entirely recovered. A ceramic crown might then be designed to return the wellness and natural look to the tooth.
