Woman receiving endodontic therapy from dentist.Endodontists are dentists who have received a postgraduate degree in the area of endodontic therapy; that is, directing their care toward the treatment and management of diseases which involve the nerves inside of the tooth. Root canals are perhaps the most widely known procedure that endodontists are known for.

At Preferred Dental Care, we have an on-staff endodontist who provides critical procedures that prevent our patients from having to go all over town for their care. That means our Queens, NY patients can have the best root canal treatments available, without having to drive all over the city.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are essential in preserving teeth that have suffered:

  • Periodontal abscesses
  • Trauma
  • Deep tooth decay
  • Significant damage to tooth structure
  • Severe sensitivity or pain
  • Fractured roots

During a root canal, we remove the diseased nerve tissue and seal off the nerve chamber. This prevents reinfection of the tooth and allows the tooth to function for several more years.

Root Canals Don’t Have to Hurt
