Root canal therapy is a non-surgical procedure that is used to repair a tooth whose pulp has sustained an infection or suffered damage. It has an impressive 90% success rate, and that’s good to know because without it, you would surely lose the tooth. And that would leave you with a less appealing smile and complications such as possibly shifting teeth. At Allstate Dental LLC, you can be confident in expert, effective, gentle care.
The most common and obvious sign of needing our Newark root canal is pain. At first, it may seem like a typical toothache, but most of the time it will become much worse, especially when you chew or apply pressure to the tooth. Of course, no toothache should be ignored. The other sign that you should look for is sensitivity when you drink or eat something that is either cold or hot. You might also have gum tenderness or tooth discoloration. The more quickly you seek treatment, the better the outcome is likely to be. If you’re nervous about the prospect of our Newark root canal, let us offer you reassurance. Today, with the many advancements in both equipment and technique, and with our dentist’s expertise, you will find the process to be smooth and comfortable. Most patients say that they noticed very little pain or even none at all. The injured pulp and nerve have to be removed, and to do that, the top half of your tooth is lost. There’s no need to worry, though. Later, you’ll be fitted with a crown to restore it to normal size. After the pulp and nerve come out, the canals are cleaned and disinfected before being sealed off.
With our Newark root canal, you can expect your tooth to be as strong and durable as any of your other teeth. Contact us right away to schedule a prompt appointment.
