No More Pain

Atlantic Avenue Dental uses an advanced computerized technique which allows us to complete your root canal treatment in just one visit and makes your root canal experience much more comfortable- often pain free.

Teeth contain a pulp that provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth. This runs like a thread down through the root. And when diseased or injured, pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth becomes abscessed (infected), and you could lose it. After Dr. Coscia removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned out then sealed off to protect the inside of the tooth from further damage or infection. 

Signs & Symptoms

You may need a root canal if one or more of the following symptoms are present:

  • Tooth pain or tooth ache
  • Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Swelling and the tenderness of the surrounding gums
  • No symptoms – through digital X-rays, we are able to see the need for a root canal before the pain starts
Regular check-ups and good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing will help to reduce plaque and bacteria and prevent the need for a root canal.  If you are experiencing pain or symptoms, call Atlantic Avenue Dental at 516-792-6952 to schedule an emergency appointment.
