Root Canal

Root Canal treatment in Yonkers, NY

Root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful. In reality, most patients report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to dental care is truly the painful period of time, not the root canal procedure itself.
A root canal is a treatment used to save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Nerve and pulp, the soft area within the center of the tooth, can become irritated, inflamed, and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma to the face. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

Signs you may need a root canal:

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the nearby gums
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present
