Root Canals:

Save and repair your teeth with root canal treatments at Gramercy Dental Suite. Our gentle, anxiety-free treatments are performed in a comfortable, serene setting. The process involves carefully removing the infected pulp from the affected tooth, cleaning and shaping the root canal, and sealing it to prevent future infection.

The Process:

Anesthesia Administration: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.

Pulp Removal: Our dental professionals carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp from the inside of the tooth, eliminating bacteria and preventing further infection.

Root Canal Cleaning: The root canal is thoroughly cleaned and shaped using specialized instruments to remove any remaining debris and bacteria.

Sealing: Once the root canal is clean, it is sealed with a biocompatible material to prevent bacteria from re-entering and causing reinfection.

Restoration: Depending on the extent of damage, a dental crown may be placed over the treated tooth to restore its strength, function, and appearance.

The duration of a root canal treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the tooth being treated. Generally, a root canal treatment takes one to two appointments, with each appointment lasting 60 to 90 minutes.

After a root canal treatment, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Avoid chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools. Attend routine dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure the health and longevity of your treated tooth and overall oral health.

Some common signs that you may need a root canal include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling around the affected tooth, and darkening of the tooth. However, some cases may not exhibit any symptoms. Regular dental check-ups at Gramercy Dental Suite can help detect and address any dental issues before they progress and require more extensive treatments.
