Root Canals Q & A

What are root canals?

Root canals, or root canal therapy, is a dental procedure that involves removing the tooth's pulp and replacing it with a protective filling. The purpose of root canals is to save teeth by removing infection while repairing the structure.

What are the symptoms of root canals?

Root canal infection causes severe toothache pain, leading to more serious problems. The hallmark signs that patients will need root canals soon include:

  • Swelling of the cheek or gums near the infected tooth
  • Uncontrollable pain
  • A temperature higher than 99 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • A tooth that is sensitive to cold or heat
  • A tooth that feels loose when biting down

If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment with your reputable and trustworthy dentist as soon as possible. The staff at Creative Dental of Syosset can diagnose and treat your condition quickly and efficiently.

If you're unsure that you need a root canal, call the Creative Dental of Syosset office to speak with friendly staff members who will happily answer your questions.


What can I expect from a root canal procedure?

The root canal procedure begins by numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic injected into your gums. The tooth is then thoroughly cleaned and shaped to remove infection and repair damage to the teeth's pulp and root canals. 

Removing all bacteria from the inside of your tooth is a critical process. If infectious material is left behind, it can cause severe damage to the inner chamber. Once all infection is removed from the tooth, the tooth is prepared for restoration. Your dentist will fit a crown or filling to seal off your root canal.


Are root canals done in one visit?

Root canal treatments are usually completed in a few visits, especially if you have multiple root canals. Endodontists who are specialists in performing root canals complete the procedure in one visit.

When it comes to root canals, time is of the essence. Creative Dental of Syosset understands this and works hard to provide the highest quality of service and care. The practice accepts checks, cash, Discover, American Express, and CareCredit as payment methods.
