Why Choose NU Dental Eatontown for Root Canal Therapy?

Why Do I Need a Root Canal?

The center of the tooth is home to a dense collection of blood vessels, tissues, nerve endings, and other organic materials. This collection, known as the pulp, is protected by a thick layer of enamel. As a result, bacteria cannot reach it unless the enamel layer is compromised, either by decay or injury that cracks or erodes it. If the pulp becomes infected, you’ll quickly notice a high level of discomfort that is so unbearable you won’t be able to ignore it. Without professional care, your dental infection will not get better on its own. Additionally, it can spread to other teeth if not treated right away.

The Root Canal Process

This procedure is meant to relieve discomfort and preserve as much of your healthy natural tooth as possible. During your treatment, we’ll first ensure you feel comfortable and safe by using a local anesthetic to numb that area of your mouth. Our team can also offer various sedation options to help you stay relaxed if you’re feeling a bit anxious about your procedure. Once you’re settled and your dentist has assessed your oral health, we’ll begin the treatment.

We’ll make a tiny hole in your enamel, making sure to take out any damaged or infected tissue from within your tooth. Our team will then clean and sanitize the area to make it bacteria-free before we fill the tooth with a biocompatible substance. After we’ve filled it, we’ll typically cap it with a durable dental crown to provide its natural function and appearance.
