Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy may be recommended when a tooth is significantly damaged or decayed. If the decay or damage reaches the pulp of a tooth, that tooth will not be able to heal on its own, making root canal therapy a necessity. Those who require root canal therapy often exhibit a sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, and/or a bad taste in the mouth; however, in some cases there are no apparent symptoms when the pulp is infected. It is essential to regularly visit the dentist in order to avoid this situation and maintain optimal oral health.

At the office of Dr. DeRosa in Saugerties, we use the latest dental technology to perform your root canal therapy. Typically performed over the course of one appointment, your root canal treatment will be a gentle, pain-free experience. Following the completion of the root canal therapy, Dr. DeRosa will place a dental crown over the tooth for additional protection and aesthetics. If you are experiencing any dental pain, please call or visit our office as soon as possible to receive the care you need. We look forward to restoring your oral health and comfort!
