Root Canals in East Rockaway

Experienced Endodontist in Nassau County

Root canal procedures have a bad reputation for being painful and uncomfortable. In fact, many patients put off seeing a dentist or receiving treatment for as long as they can. Doing so can actually lead to increased damage to your dental health and result in more expensive and painful surgery down the line.

Your Comfort is Our Top Priority

Fortunately, our experienced East Rockaway endodontist at Suri Dental Group strives to provide root canal treatments with as little pain and stress as possible. We work to make you feel comfortable from the time you first visit our office all the way until the procedure is complete.

Reasons Why You May Need a Root Canal

Here are three common reasons someone may need a root canal:

  • Deep Decay or Infection: The most common reason for a root canal is deep decay or infection that has spread to the pulp of the tooth. When a tooth is decayed or damaged, bacteria can enter the pulp chamber and cause infection. The infection can spread to the root of the tooth and result in an abscess or swelling around the tooth.
  1. Trauma or Injury: Trauma or injury to a tooth can also lead to the need for a root canal. When a tooth is cracked, chipped, or broken, the pulp of the tooth may be exposed, making it vulnerable to infection. Even if there is no visible damage, trauma to a tooth can cause the blood vessels and nerves inside the tooth to become damaged or inflamed, leading to the need for a root canal.

  2. Deep Dental Restoration: Sometimes a deep dental restoration, such as a filling or crown, can lead to the need for a root canal. If a dental restoration is placed too close to the pulp of the tooth, it can cause irritation or inflammation of the pulp tissue. Over time, this can lead to infection and the need for a root canal. Additionally, the procedure of placing a deep restoration can sometimes cause trauma to the tooth and result in the need for a root canal.

It's important to note that these are just a few of the reasons a patient may need a root canal. The symptoms of tooth decay or infection can vary, and it's important to see our qualified East Rockaway endodontist if you're experiencing any dental pain or discomfort.

A thorough evaluation at our East Rockaway dental practice will help determine if a root canal is necessary to save the tooth and restore dental health.

Do I Really Need a Root Canal?

If you have a tooth that has become decayed or infected and it's too late for a filling, a root canal may be necessary. Root canals, despite the scary-sounding name, are fairly simple procedures that can help save a tooth that has an infected nerve. A root canal simply cleans out the infected root and then seals the tooth from further decay. If you are experiencing pain or the hurting tooth is progressively getting worse, our dentists can examine your tooth to determine if a root canal is necessary.

You may need a root canal if you are experiencing:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Persistent gum pain
  • Prolonged sensitivity
  • Sensitivity to cold/hot temperatures

Rave Reviews from
Happy Patients

  • My experience with Suri Dental Group was extremely positive.

    “My experience with Suri Dental Group was extremely positive. I knew that I needed work done on several teeth but I am a nervous patient. Dr. Suri examined the areas that needed attention. He then carefully explained my preferred treatment which made me feel much more relaxed. I am returning next week to begin my treatment and I feel very confident that he will take good care of me. I am very happy that I chose Suri Dental Group.”

    “Everyone on his staff is friendly and courteous. Let's face it, having to go to the dentist is never an exciting realization and could be terrifying for some. Dr. Suri and his amazing team make the whole ordeal as painless as possible. Dr. Suri explains his findings clearly and thoroughly, he then presents your options (if applicable) and patiently/objectively helps guide you to the decision that's best tailored for your situation. I'll be a patient for life, as will my family. Thanks Dr. Suri and team!!!!!”

    “By far one of the best dental experiences I have ever had the cleaning was very thorough. The hygienist is very personable. The office staff is so pleasant, welcoming, warm and friendly the dentist himself extremely gentle. I cannot believe that I walked in, got an implant and walked out in less than an hour and a half.
