Welcome to Midtown Endodontics

For years, "root canal therapy" has been thought of as a painful and time-consuming procedure. Those erroneous thoughts have been perpetuated in the media ("...the only thing worse could be having a root canal...") and the public in general.

The specialty of Endodontics has been recognized for decades and in that time, great advances have been made, to the point where it is the accepted norm that root canal therapy is a quick and painless procedure. Specialists trained in the practice of endodontics have acquired special skills in diagnosis and treatment techniques. Improvements in anesthesia, instrumentation, x-ray technology (now rapid and very low-dose radiation digital), illumination, magnification and visibility, as well as sedation techniques (when rarely required), have made for quick, painless and highly successful root canal treatment.
