Here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A., the top Ridgewood endodontic office, one of the most common services we provide for our patients is root canal therapy. Root canal therapy often has negative connotations, but the truth is that when you are in the hands of the capable professionals here at our Ridgewood endodontic office, root canal therapy is just another restorative procedure aimed to keep the health and structure of your smile in tact. We typically recommend root canal therapy here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. if you have a tooth in which the pulp has been infected. The pulp is the soft collection of tissue located at the center of each of your teeth. When a tooth is severely decayed, the declining integrity of the tooth’s structure can then expose the pulp of the tooth to the various bacteria present within your mouth at any given time. There are a few telltale signs typically associated with a tooth’s infection include: moderate to severe pain in the tooth, increased tooth pain while biting down or chewing, increased tooth sensitivity, and a gradual darkening or discoloration of the tooth in question. If you notice any or all of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment at our Ridgewood endodontic office as soon as possible. During your visit, we will examine the current state of your tooth, and will determine the best course of action to address and resolve your symptoms. If root canal therapy is needed, we will explain the process and how it will work for you. The main goals of root canal therapy are to remove the infected pulp, to carefully and thoroughly clean the entire area to remove excess bacteria, and then to seal up the tooth to prevent future infections.
