When most people hear that they will need a Root Canal, they automatically think they will be sitting through a painful procedure. Let the dentists of West Morris Dental, PC put those rumors aside when they perform your root canal in Northwestern NJ!
Root Canal treatment does not cause pain. The procedure itself relieves your toothache and treats the infection. Today's endodontic treatment uses state-of-the-art technology and, in most cases, our dentists will perform your root canal in Northwestern NJ safely and comfortably in one visit.
A tooth needing a root canal does not always present itself with discomfort or intense pain. The infected tooth would eventually abscess and if not treated could result in the loss of the tooth.
If you are in need of a root canal in Northwestern NJ, the great news is that your tooth can be saved. A tooth needing root canal treatment can stem from decay, a crack in the tooth or trauma. Your dentist will remove the infected pulp of the tooth, and the inside of the canal is cleaned then sealed.
A tooth that has had a root canal no longer has blood supply going to the tooth and can become brittle and break. It is important to follow your dentist's recommendation to restore the tooth with a filling or post and core or crown for support.
Following the procedure, your dentist will place a temporary filling in the tooth. It is normal for the tooth to feel "tender" for a few days afterward. During the healing process, biting and chewing on the other side of your mouth is helpful. Your dentist will decide on a case by case basis if an antibiotic is necessary.
