Root Canal Therapy - Brick, NJ
Saves Ailing Teeth
Root canal therapy enables us to relieve the most severe dental pain and save extremely damaged teeth at the same time. It is typically needed when a tooth’s innermost chamber, known as the dental pulp, has become damaged or infected.
Some signs that you might need a root canal are:
- Severe dental pain in one tooth
- Pain when biting down on a particular tooth
- Swelling or redness of the gums near one tooth
- A bump on the gum tissue next to a tooth
For a root canal, your dentist will gently remove the infected tissue, clean the interior of the tooth, fill it with a biocompatible material, and then fully restore the tooth with a dental crown. Most root canals can be completed in just one visit, and thanks to modern-day dental techniques, most patients experience very little discomfort during or after their procedure.
If you have a painful tooth that has been bothering you, a root canal could be exactly what you need, so contact us today for an appointment.
