If you have a tooth that is causing pain in your mouth you should see a dentist as soon as possible. This tooth may be harboring an infection that needs immediate dental care. If a tooth is infected it will need a root canal treatment that hopefully will save the life of the tooth. The sooner root canal therapy can be performed, the greater the chance of saving the tooth. Doctors who specialize in performing root canal treatments are called endodontists. If you need to find a great endodontist in Bergen County, come visit us at Mid-County endodontic Group P.A.

Root canal treatment is most likely to be more successful if it is performed early on in the course of the infection. If the first root canal therapy is not successful, our endodontist in Bergen County will perform a repeated treatment in the hope of saving the tooth. Generally our dentists are able to tell by looking at the tooth during the first procedure if the tooth is able to be saved or not. However, some cases may take more or extended care. Root canals are a very common dental procedure. Generally root canal treatments are successful in more than 95% of cases. During a root canal the infected pulp (the nerve of the tooth) is cleaned out. The tooth is then sealed. Your tooth will then be fitted with a temporary crown at our office. Your own dentist will provide the final restoration on the tooth – generally a porcelain crown to further protect the tooth.
