Root canals are an important restorative procedure that can save your teeth and avoid painful extractions. The team at Ardsley Dental Spa offer gentle root canal treatment to keep your smile healthy.

A Root Canal?
Root canals help to fix damaged teeth before they endanger other teeth or become so far damaged that they need to be removed. Root canal treatment is performed when a cavity gets too big to support traditional fillings. Following treatment, the tooth is capped with a permanent crown to restore its function and appearance.
Do Root Canals Hurt?
Today, getting a root canal is just as comfortable as getting a filling. Once your permanent crown is set, you may experience a little abnormal jolt when you bite until your mouth completely heals. Like any surgical procedure, you may experience some minor pain after.
During a root canal treatment, we will do everything we can to help make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure. We offer a selection of soothing, spa-like amenities and comfort aids to make your time with us as rewarding as possible.
What Can I Expect During A Root Canal?
To start, our team will take digital X-rays. Then our dentist will prep the tooth by removing all of the decay or damage. When the tooth is ready to house the crown, we will create an impression. From this, we will make your crown. Made from beautiful, durable porcelain, your crown will also match the color and aesthetics of your smile.
During your first exam, our dentist will place a temporary crown that will protect your tooth until the permanent crown can be set on your next visit. Setting the crown is an easy and relatively quick procedure. We use a bonding agent that cements the crown in place. The permanent crown will look and feel natural.

Do I Need A Root Canal?
Do you think you might need a root canal? Here are signs and symptoms to look for:
- If you have darkened teeth, it could be a sign that a cavity is growing deep.
- Typically, if you have shooting pain from drinking cold beverages, it could be a sign that your nerves are starting to flare.
- Excessive damage or disease eats away at the tooth and exposes the nerve. Tenderness when chewing is another sign that your teeth should be looked at.
Instead Of Getting A Root Canal, Can We Pull The Tooth?
We can, but at Ardsley Dental Spa, our first priority is to save the tooth. Having a full healthy smile not only helps you continue to chew normally but maintains your confidence. Getting root canal treatment can also keep you from having to receive a costlier implant, bridge or denture to replace that tooth later.
Can I Eat Normal Foods?
Absolutely. A root canal will not get in the way of eating your favorite foods. But you may want to stay away from sticky foods that could dislodge the crown.
Do You Accept Insurance?
Yes, our practice accepts insurance. We will do everything we can to help you maximize your benefits. Are you uninsured? We also offer simple and affordable financing options for those who qualify.
