Root Canal Therapy – Long Island City, NY
Preserve Infected Teeth For Many Years to Come
In order for teeth to remain alive and healthy, each one is supplied with nutrients by nerves located through a chamber called the root canal. As decay spreads downward and into a decayed tooth, the decay encroaches on the pulp chamber of that tooth, which contains the nerve. This is often what leads to a toothache. In order to remove all of the decay from the tooth, sometimes it is necessary to remove the nerve entirely and replace the empty canal with a root canal filling.

Unfortunately, root canals are not always entirely effective in removing all bacterial contents from the chamber of the tooth. Even if only a little bit of bacteria persists in the root of the tooth, it can sometimes lead to recurrent infection and pain. Our team is skilled in retreating the canal chamber by removing the previous root canal filling and intensely cleaning the chamber before filling it again and hoping for improved results.
