There are different reasons why a patient may have a toothache. Sometimes the exact cause of the toothache can be difficult to determine. Our top-notch endodontists are experts at determining the exact cause of your tooth pain. Sometimes a tooth has infected or damaged pulp in the center, in which case you will need to have a root canal procedure. Sometimes a tooth may be cracked, and this is causing your toothache problem. Cracked teeth can be difficult to diagnose since the problem may not be evident upon initial examination. Whatever type of tooth problem you have, our expert Ridgewood NJ dentist will quickly discover it and let you know what precise treatment is needed to solve your toothache problem. If you have a tooth which has infected or damaged pulp in the center, you will need to have a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. If the tooth is damaged in this manner and it does not receive this treatment, the tooth will not be able to be saved, and will need to be extracted or will eventually fall out on its own. Not all teeth are good candidates for root canal treatment because the damage may be so extensive that a root canal treatment will not be effective. Our endodontist will examine your individual situation and let you know whether or not a root canal procedure will work in your particular case. The good news is that most teeth with damaged or infected pulp can be saved by having a root canal; in fact, root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases.
