Relieve Pain and Save Your Natural Teeth with Root Canal Treatment

All City Cosmetic Dental Care saves badly damaged or decayed teeth with root canals. A deep cavity or crack may lead to infection at the tooth’s centermost part (pulp chamber). Root canal treatment (RCT) removes this infection to save your tooth from extraction.

If you have unexplained toothaches or your tooth is sensitive to touch, you may need a root canal in South Huntington, New York. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Boris Yusupov and the team to experience our safe, gentle, and effective root canals.

What are the signs of a root canal?

Sometimes, when a tooth suffers damage or decay, unwanted bacteria can seep through the cracks in the enamel and into the pulp chamber. This part houses the nerves, blood vessels, and other connective tissues susceptible to infection. If a tooth is infected or considered ‘dead,’ it requires a root canal.

The signs of a tooth that needs root canal treatment include:

  • An excruciating toothache, especially when chewing or biting into food
  • Increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold drinks
  • Tooth discoloration as the pulp dies off
  • Swollen face or gums
  • A pimple-like swelling on your gums

Sometimes, your tooth may be infected but doesn’t show typical symptoms. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular appointments with your dentist. Dentists are trained to spot problems even before you notice them!

What is the procedure for root canal treatment?

We use advanced techniques and materials to provide a seamless and painless experience. While the procedure can typically be completed in one visit, more complex cases may require two or more visits.

Although we may customize your treatment, the typical root canal procedure follows these steps:

  • Consultation: The dentist will examine your tooth with dental X-rays to build an accurate assessment of the damage.
  • Removing the dental pulp: First, we’ll isolate your tooth with a rubber dam to prevent saliva contamination. Then, we’ll create a small opening at the top of the tooth and use this access hole to remove the infected pulp tissues.
  • Cleaning and filling: We’ll thoroughly clean and sanitize the tooth to remove all traces of harmful bacteria. Then, we’ll file the root canals to create space for the filling material (gutta-percha). This biocompatible, rubber-like material seals the tooth to prevent future infections.
  • Tooth restoration: The dentist will seal the access hole with a tooth filling. However, if your tooth is significantly weakened, it may need a dental crown.
  • Aftercare: After your treatment, we’ll give you medications and home remedies to ensure your tooth heals smoothly. Furthermore, we’ll give you tips to maintain your treated tooth to last a lifetime.

Have you heard that root canals cause pain? Contrary to popular belief, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality is that root canals relieve toothaches. Tooth pain doesn’t happen because of a root canal—it occurs when you put off a root canal when you really need it.
