Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

When your teeth are damaged the inside of the tooth can become infected. This can then have a bad effect upon the pulp of the tooth, i.e., the blood vessels and nerves inside. If you do nothing about this the infection can begin to damage the bone, causing pain and swelling. If this happens to one of your teeth, come see our dentist or Endodontist to determine the best endodontic treatment (Root Canal Therapy) to save the tooth.


Tooth pain can be debilitating, especially if it originates in the root of your tooth. It can be a throbbing or a stabbing pain. But pain that comes from the root of your tooth often means that the pulp has become infected and needs treatment.

Don’t ignore tooth nerve pain or control the pain with medication. If the cause is an infection, it can turn dangerous if left untreated. Call the professionals at Astoria, NY dental clinic, your Astoria, NY family dentists. A root canal procedure can save the tooth, permanently resolving your pain.

Your New York restorative dentists have the skills and knowledge to painlessly perform root canal therapy. Their goal is to maintain your dental health. A root canal procedure is just another technique to keep your teeth healthy.

Causes of Tooth Nerve Pain

Most often, a toothache is caused by a cavity that just needs a filling. But if the damage is more severe or if the tooth is already weakened, a filling may not be adequate.

Only your dentist in Astoria, NY can determine if you need a root canal procedure, but some of the symptoms that may lead to a root canal include:

  • Untreated and extensive tooth decay
  • Intense tooth nerve pain
  • A tooth abscess A tooth that looks darker than your other teeth, which indicates a dying pulp
  • A dental crown that’s become loose or faulty
  • A tooth that’s been broken, cracked or chipped, exposing its pulp

What Does Root Canal Therapy Involve?

A root canal procedure requires one or more appointments and can be performed by a dentist or endodontist (a root canal specialist).

While the tooth is numb, a rubber dam (a sheet of rubber) will be placed around the tooth to keep it dry and free of saliva. An access opening is made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, one at a time, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria. If tooth decay is present, it will also be removed with special dental instruments.
