NYC Root Canal for Tooth Pain



Root canal therapy is not painful when properly performed. Our Root Canal team includes 16 cosmetic dentists, specialists (including two Endodontists) and lab ceramists in one high-end midtown Manhattan office. Our NY Endodontist works to high standards to keep you comfortable and to do it right the first time. We usually complete our NYC root canal therapy in one office visit in about one hour. In short, we have endodontists, root canal specialists, on staff who are experienced with many times of tooth pain.

Many of our patients prefer nitrous oxide laughing gas to make the time pass more quickly. In addition an MD-anesthesiologist offers several options for dental sedation. It is your choice when scheduled in advance. As a result of all the above we are able to offer quick and comfortable root canal therapy.

  • Root canal therapy without pain? Who heard of such a thing? I can tell you that I visited Jeff with a really bad toothache and his Endodontist got rid of that pain in one visit. It is not inexpensive but worth it. I love this NYC dental office and go for cosmetic dentistry too! -- T. Connolly, Manhattan
  • Three root canals were performed by the NY root canal specialist in one day & I was fine. I went back to treat two two other teeth that had bad root canals performed elsewhere. The sensitivity I had was finally gone! Good music & laughing gas. -- Hiram, New York
  • A friend referred me to The Center for Special Dentistry in New York NY for a lot of porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers and root canal therapy. I must say it was a very good experience. I recommend this dental office and Professor Dorfman quite highly. It is a very professional group. -- Ian, Zurich
  • Best root canal specialist in New York or shall I now say Endodontist? I've learned more about dentistry in the past six months at The Center for Special Dentistry than in the past thirty years living in Manhattan and visiting other New York dentists. Go for good dentistry. -- Debbie, New York NY

Our NYC Root Canal for Tooth Pain patients also have access to top medical care

Moreover our patients have access to our affiliated team of 12 medical doctors in our building. This is because of the known relationship between dental disease and other medical diseases like heart disease and diabetes. We hope to improve your overall health one step at a time.

Our NYC Root Canal treatment is comfortable

Root canal therapy has a bad reputation for two reasons:  1) People frequently wait too long after tooth pain begins before they seek treatment and 2) Many general dentists, and high-volume endodontists, don’t perform root canal therapy particularly well. Patients should ask to see the final x-ray following root canal therapy. They should learn to differentiate good root canal therapy from one that will likely need root canal retreatment or extraction later. Sadly, that happens a lot.

This x-ray below is an example of really bad root canal therapy. The root canal filling (arrows 3, 4 & 10) does not extend to the end of the tooth root (arrows 5, 6 & 11). 7) & 8) Radiographic evidence of an active root canal infection in the jaw. Pain in this tooth was the reason for this new patient visit. 9) A poor-fitting prefabricated post. The molar tooth on the left will likely need extraction and replacement with a dental implant and new crown because the three posts appear to block access to all three canals. The premolar tooth on the right will need root canal retreatment, a new post, possible gum surgery and a new crown.
