Endodontics | Root Canal Therapy in Long Island City, NY.

Endodontics, also known as root canal therapy, is needed when the dental pulp of your tooth becomes infected or damaged. If the infected dental pulp is not removed, it can harm the well-being of your entire tooth. A root canal removes the inner dental pulp and seals it with gutta percha, which is a rubber-like substance. Today’s dental technology allows root canals to be performed safely and free of discomfort. You’ll be given an anesthetic to ensure you’re completely comfortable during your procedure.
Common symptoms that indicate you may require a root canal include:

  • Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures

  • Chewing or biting pain

  • Puss

  • Infection of the tooth

  • An untreated abscess
