Root Canal Therapy in Roselle Park, NJ
A root canal is the space inside the hard layers of each tooth, with the soft area called the pulp or pulp chamber and the nerve of the tooth. As a tiny passageway root canal branches off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing its way vertically downward until it reaches the tip of the root.
Problems with root canals are nothing unusual and in the past, teeth with diseased nerves often had to be removed. Fortunately, thanks to modern technologies and advances in dentistry we are now able to save the affected teeth through root canal therapy. If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed, come to Garden State Dental in Roselle Park to have your root canal treated and regain flawless oral health!
What is the course of root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected instead of removing it. Many tooth problems involve irritation, inflammation and infection that spread to the pulp, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems. An abscessed tooth is a tooth with an infection in the pulp. If left untreated, all root canal issues can lead to serious oral health problems.
Root canal therapy usually involves a few stages at the dentist office:
- Injecting anesthetics into the affected area to numb the tooth
- Isolating the tooth with a rubber dam
- Creating an access cavity in the tooth
- Cleaning the root canal system
- Filling and sealing the canal
