Endodontics Q & A

Why would I need endodontic care?

An endodontist studies for two years after dental school, learning the process of performing root canals. A root canal from a dental professional like the doctors at Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC is often the best treatment if you have tooth pain. A deep cavity, dental trauma, fracture, a previously poorly treated root canal, or repeated dental procedures over many years on the same tooth can lead to a tooth that needs a root canal. Sometimes this can lead to infections in your gums or facial swelling.

The Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC office uses state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose and treat all types of tooth pain, so you can feel confident that your dental issue will be resolved the first time around.

What should I expect at an endodontic appointment?

First of all, please relax. Anticipating a tooth canal can be frightening, but the doctors at Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC are experts. That’s evident even in their thorough check-up procedure.

At Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC, the staff takes your full medical history, your dental history, consults with your dentist, and listens to your concerns. Then, you’ll undergo a thorough exam. The staff at Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC use imaging and various modalities that might be needed to illuminate the cause of your problem. their diagnostic tools include state-of-the-art instruments, including:

  • Dental 3D imaging (this cutting edge technology isn’t usually available in other endodontic practices)
  • Dental surgical microscope (this tool gives the doctors a better view because it enlarges the tooth’s image tremendously)
  • Electronic apex locator (this equipment reduces the need for X-rays)
  • Endodontic ultrasonics (the process helps find hidden root canals and remove old posts)

The Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC team takes pride in being experts in particularly difficult cases, which may include calcified canals -- or very small canals -- curved roots, broken instruments lodged in canals, internal or external resorption, and previously failed root canal treatments.

Are endodontic procedures painful?

Many men and women who need endodontic treatment are already in so much pain that they just want relief. While you may be apprehensive about dental treatment, the caring team at Compassionate Endodontists New York/NYC does everything possible to make your procedure painless. They use local anesthetics in addition to nitrous oxide (laughing gas), if needed, so there should be no discomfort.

In fact, many of our patients fall asleep during their procedures. Nevertheless, if you’re feeling any pain or unwanted discomfort during a procedure, you’re encouraged to let them know so they can rectify the problem.
