Root Canal Therapy in Floral Park

Root Canal Therapy in Floral Park, NY.

A root canal is a dental procedure that saves a severely decayed or infected tooth from extraction. It involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, which is the soft tissue inside the tooth, and cleaning and disinfecting the root canals before filling and sealing them.

Root canals are crucial for relieving severe tooth pain caused by tooth decay, infection, or trauma. They also prevent the spread of infection to other teeth and the jawbone, which can lead to more serious oral health problems. With advancements in dental technology and techniques, root canals are now relatively painless and highly effective, with a high success rate in saving teeth.

After a root canal, a dental crown is usually placed over the treated tooth to protect it and restore its functionality and aesthetics. Proper oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups, and healthy lifestyle habits can help ensure the long-term success of a root canal treatment.
