Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Staten Island Dental Care, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Staten Island dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort. Staten Island root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling from your Staten Island Dental Care general dentistry professional.
At Staten Island Dental Care, our goal is to help our root canal patients avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment by providing skilled dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth for one of our Staten Island patients, we provide the most advanced endodontics in the area.
How do you know if you need a root canal? See your Staten Island Dental Care dental professional immediately if you experience tenderness or tooth pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage. However, for some Staten Island endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is crucial to visit your local Staten Island family dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination.
