Root Canal for Tooth Pain

Root canal therapy is not painful when properly performed. Our Root Canal team includes 16 cosmetic dentists, specialists (including two Endodontists) and lab ceramists in one high-end midtown Manhattan office. Our  Endodontist works to high standards to keep you comfortable and to do it right the first time. We usually complete our root canal therapy in one office visit in about one hour. In short, we have endodontists, root canal specialists, on staff who are experienced with many times of tooth pain.

Many of our patients prefer nitrous oxide laughing gas to make the time pass more quickly. In addition an MD-anesthesiologist offers several options for dental sedation. It is your choice when scheduled in advance. As a result of all the above we are able to offer quick and comfortable root canal therapy.

Our Root Canal for Tooth Pain patients also have access to top medical care

Moreover our patients have access to our affiliated team of 12 medical doctors in our building. This is because of the known relationship between dental disease and other medical diseases like heart disease and diabetes. We hope to improve your overall health one step at a time.

Our Root Canal treatment is comfortable

Root canal therapy has a bad reputation for two reasons:  1) People frequently wait too long after tooth pain begins before they seek treatment and 2) Many general dentists, and high-volume endodontists, don’t perform root canal therapy particularly well. Patients should ask to see the final x-ray following root canal therapy. They should learn to differentiate good root canal therapy from one that will likely need root canal retreatment or extraction later. Sadly, that happens a lot.

This x-ray below is an example of really bad root canal therapy. The root canal filling (arrows 3, 4 & 10) does not extend to the end of the tooth root (arrows 5, 6 & 11). 7) & 8) Radiographic evidence of an active root canal infection in the jaw. Pain in this tooth was the reason for this new patient visit. 9) A poor-fitting prefabricated post. The molar tooth on the left will likely need extraction and replacement with a dental implant and new crown because the three posts appear to block access to all three canals. The premolar tooth on the right will need root canal retreatment, a new post, possible gum surgery and a new crown.
