Dear Doctors and Patients,
Everyone's safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to City Endodontics. As our country and the world continue to deal with
the effects of COVID-19, we write to inform you about the AAE’s and American Dental Association’s (ADA) newest guidelines and
recommendations for seeking dental care. The ADA has recommended limiting non-emergency dental treatment and we intend to
practice within these recommendations while remaining available to any patient who seeks emergency care. Please be advised that our
hours may change on the basis of demand for our services. We will only be seeing patients who are in need of emergency root canal
treatments. If you or your patients are in pain and need care immediately, call our office (212) 725-2573.
or email us [email protected] as we work to provide our community with safe treatment options. In addition to following the
guidance from the CDC, City Endodontics has updated our sanitation policies to prevent the spread of the virus. We are disinfecting our
offices’ common areas like patient waiting rooms and check-in desks more frequently, limiting interpersonal interactions (social
distancing, and we are providing pre-operative mouth rinse with enhanced vigilance. For scheduled patients that are feeling ill or have
been in contact with someone that has tested positive for the virus, their appointment will be rescheduled 14 days later. We are here to
support you and will play our part to fight the spread of coronavirus. If you need more support or clarification, please do not hesitate to
contact our office.
Please stay safe and take steps to exercise extreme caution.

Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment at our Manhattan endodontic office, please visit our treatment page.
Root Canal Surgery
Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
