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.
