Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches provide a vivid reminder that teeth aren’t just inert pieces of hard tissue floating in the gums. Instead, they’re intricately formed parts with layers of hard substances overlaying a delicate core. Coursing through the tooth’s center, this vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels provides nutrients and sensation to each tooth. As long as the tooth stays healthy, you’re rarely aware of the systems at work.

A deep cavity can give bacteria access to the inner nerve bundle. A crack extending into the same region can create stress that will need additional care to relieve. In some cases, a significant infection may develop in your jaw without any symptoms at all. In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. Today, with root canal treatment your tooth can be saved. Our dentists in Aberdeen NJ will determine that if the nerve won’t recover or infection is present, then root canal treatment is the best course of treatment. 

Do Root Canals Hurt?

Modern anesthetics provide powerful numbing for gentle removal of the inflamed nerve inside the tooth. The root canal works to relieve you of your tooth pain! Contact our dentist office today to schedule your root canal treatment.

How Does a Root Canal Work?

First, the nerve canal undergoes disinfection and careful shaping, and a sealer fills the internal space. A filling or crown over the tooth helps return the tooth to its original condition.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Root canal treatment involves one to three visits, depending on if you need a dental crown or sealant in your internal space. Consult with your Aberdeen NJ Dentist to learn more.
