Root canal therapy is a crucial treatment for saving teeth that are severely decayed or infected. At Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, Dr. Brian Hirschfield specializes in pain-free root canal treatments designed to preserve your natural teeth and eliminate dental pain. Our advanced techniques and compassionate approach ensure a comfortable and effective treatment experience.

A root canal is often necessary when the pulp, the soft inner tissue of a tooth, becomes inflamed or infected. This can result from deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. During the procedure, Dr. Hirschfield will remove the infected or inflamed pulp, carefully clean and shape the inside of the canal (the space inside the root), and then fill and seal the space to prevent re-infection. Our use of local anesthesia and optional sedation ensures that the procedure is as painless as possible.

Benefits of Choosing Root Canal Therapy

  • Pain Relief: Effectively removes the source of tooth pain associated with pulp infection or inflammation.
  • Tooth Preservation: Allows for the saving of a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.
  • Prevention of Infection Spread: Stops the infection from spreading to other teeth or areas of the mouth.
  • Restorative Solutions: Following the root canal, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and to restore its function and appearance.

Dr. Hirschfield utilizes the latest in dental technology and techniques to perform root canal therapy with precision and minimal discomfort. We offer sedation dentistry options to help ease any anxieties and ensure you are relaxed throughout your treatment. Our goal is to make your root canal procedure as stress-free and painless as possible.
