Root Canal Therapy in
Long Island City, NY

While many people find root canal therapy intimidating, it’s actually a fairly simple procedure. We’ll help to alleviate your tooth pain, completely disinfect your tooth, and stave off future infections. In fact, root canal therapy often saves your natural tooth and prevents you from needing an extraction. Think you may be in need of a root canal? Call to schedule your consultation with Queensboro Plaza Dental Care today!

Root Canal Process

The first step of your root canal procedure is to apply a local anesthetic to the affected area. This helps keep you comfortable throughout the process. Then, we will make a small hole in the crown of your tooth which gives us access to the infected pulp. Next, we’ll remove the infection and thoroughly clean your tooth’s canal. After your tooth is thoroughly cleaned, we’ll seal it off with a tooth-colored material to prevent future infections. If the structure of your natural tooth has been compromised, a dental crown may be placed over it to restore its functionality.

Root Canal Therapy FAQs

Why do I need a root canal?

Root canals are necessary when decay has impacted the pulp of your tooth. Chips or cracks in your teeth may also cause decay to spread past the outer layers of your teeth as well.

Will a root canal save my tooth?

In many cases, yes. It’s possible that a dental crown may need to be placed over your natural tooth, but our goal is to avoid an extraction whenever possible.

How can root canals be prevented?

Root canals are best avoided by keeping up with your routine preventive care. Visiting our office every six months allows us to detect problem areas before they progress to needing a root canal. Additionally, ensure your at-home routine includes brushing at least twice-per-day and flossing daily.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
