Root canals are recommended to restore teeth that have significant damage, decay, or infection. At the office of Dr. Esperanza A. Rodriguez, we can typically perform a gentle, pain-free root canal in just two appointments. Following the root canal, our dentist will place a dental crown over the treated tooth for additional protection and aesthetics. We recommend visiting our office as soon as possible if you or your child is experiencing any pain or discomfort in the gums or teeth to receive the necessary care. Please feel free to contact us for more information about a root canal in Bronx, New York.
