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.

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

What to Expect After a Root Canal

After undergoing a root canal procedure, it's essential to understand what to expect during the recovery process. Initially, you may experience some discomfort, but this should gradually improve. Here's what you can anticipate:

  • Immediate Post-Procedure: Mild discomfort or numbness may persist for a few hours due to local anesthesia.
  • Pain Management: Over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage any post-operative pain.
  • Swelling and Discomfort: Some swelling and discomfort around the treated tooth are normal but should subside within a few days.
  • Dietary Considerations: Stick to soft foods initially and gradually reintroduce a regular diet.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Attend scheduled follow-up appointments.

By following post-operative care instructions provided by our East Rockaway dentist, you can ensure a smoother recovery and optimal oral health.
