Root Canals

We don’t know of anyone who gets excited at the thought of having a root canal. It’s true that root canals have a pretty bad reputation, but today, updated dental techniques make root canals efficient and stress-free.

Trust Experience and Friendly Care

When you’re facing a procedure like a root canal, it’s important to know that you’re being treated by skilled professionals who really care about you and your needs. At Hollywood Smile Dental, you are never “just another patient.” Every time you visit, we will welcome you like a member of our family and treat you with the respect and attentive care you deserve. 

A Comfortable Root Canal IS Possible!

A root canals is a necessary treatment that often makes the difference between saving a tooth and losing it to decay or infection. But you should know that dental technology and procedures have come a long way in recent years, and having a root canal may be a lot easier than you think.

In fact, many patients who have had root canal treatment at our Rego Park dental office describe it as being no more complicated than having a tooth filled. Dr. Yefim Khanimov and our team are highly trained in root canal therapy and will work carefully to make sure that you have a positive, comfortable experience.

In addition to updated technology and techniques, we care about your comfort. Before we begin your procedure, we will make sure you are comfortable in your chair and settled in with a pillow and warm blanket, if you like. We will numb the tooth to be treated with a local anesthetic, and you will feel immediate relief from pain. Plus, you won't feel anything during your procedure.

Why Root Canals Are Necessary

When a tooth is severely decayed, the inner core is likely to develop an infection. At this point, the only way to preserve the tooth is with root canal therapy. For many people, the first sign that a root canal is needed is a severe toothache that won’t go away. 

Root canal treatment involves removal of any infected material that exists inside the damaged tooth. This will relieve your pain and restore function to the affected tooth.

Our goal is to do everything possible to preserve your natural teeth by keeping them healthy. If you postpone having a root canal, you are putting your oral health in jeopardy because there’s a good chance you will lose the tooth. We want to do whatever we can to avoid this because a missing tooth can eventually lead to more serious oral health problems.

Emergency Treatment When You Need It

It is always best if we have the time to incorporate procedures like root canal therapy into a comprehensive treatment plan. But there are sometimes instances that require us to perform a root canal on an emergency basis.

We always allow time in our day to accommodate you if an emergency arises, especially if you are in pain. If it’s after hours, you can have peace of mind knowing that Dr. Khanimov is available 24/7 to provide the relief you so desperately need.
