Our dentist may recommend root canal therapy when a dental fracture or decay have irreversibly compromised your tooth’s dental pulp. The dental pulp lies underneath the tooth’s outermost biting surface, and contains the tooth’s nerves, blood vessels and core tissues. When a tooth grows and develops, the dental pulp plays the important role of supplying it with blood and nutrients, however, once a tooth has fully matured, it no longer requires the dental pulp to remain functional. By removing the damaged pulp, cleaning the area, then sealing the tooth with inert materials to prevent re-infection a root canal procedure can successfully resolve infection, alleviate oral pain and help preserve your natural tooth for many years to come. While our skilled and experienced professional team provides precise and gentle care, we understand that some patients experience dental anxiety, and offer safe and controlled nitrous oxide sedation to mitigate any apprehension and discomfort. With today’s advanced treatment methods, your West Islip root canal can be as worry-free as a routine dental filling. Following treatment, our dentist may recommend placing a crown to strengthen and protect your tooth and to restore its function and appearance.
