If you’ve ever experienced the pain that accompanies a tooth infection, you don’t need us to tell you that it’s something you want to get addressed immediately. Here at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A., we’re dedicated to ensuring that you never have to suffer needlessly. So our urgent dental office in Bergen County NJ provides root canals on an emergency basis.
You might fear the idea of the procedure, because it is sometimes talked about as an unpleasant experience. But while it’s a serious thing, the truth is that root canal is not the cause of pain, but the method for relieving it. The majority of patients agree that root canal done at our urgent dental office in Bergen County NJ results in very little or even no pain at all. You may require more than one session, since a tooth with multiple root canals takes more time to complete, but the good news is that your pain and difficulties will be over with after the first visit. That’s because the injured pulp and nerve are removed. After that, the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. In-between visits, if necessary, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to keep the tooth protected. When the root canal is done, you will later have impressions taken for the creation of a permanent crown, restoring the tooth back to full size. The success rate for root canal is very impressive, at over 90%. Not only will it stop the pain you’re feeling, but it will allow you to retain your natural tooth, which is always the best option.
Signs that you may need a root canal from our urgent dental office in Bergen County NJ included pain when you chew with the tooth or apply pressure to it, tooth discoloration, gum tenderness, and sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks. Don’t hesitate to call us. We will get you seen as quickly as possible.
