No one looks forward to getting root canal, but when you consider the level of pain that can be present from the underlying infection, and that fact that our root canal treatment in Bergen County NJ will relieve it, then there is actually a good reason to feel positive about coming in to see us at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A.
The reason why root canals become needed in the first place is that your tooth’s natural protective layers have developed an opening that allowed bacteria to get inside your tooth. This can be due to a large cavity, a deep filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth. But what is most concerning is that you will likely experience symptoms beginning with pain when you chew or apply pressure to the tooth. The pain can be mild to excruciating, but it will be noticeable. Other signs include sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, gum tenderness, and tooth discoloration, but not everyone will have those indications. When you come in for our root canal treatment in Bergen County NJ, you will be given sufficient local anesthesia to numb you during the procedure. Sedation is also available. The process involves drilling the tooth to gain access to where the pulp is (down at the bottom). The injured pulp and nerve are removed. Then the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed off. The entirety of our root canal treatment in Bergen County NJ may take one or more sessions, depending on how many canals the tooth has. A temporary crown is fitted between sessions, so that the tooth will be protected. At the conclusion of the procedure, and after healing has taken place, you will be given a permanent crown to restore the tooth to full size and functionality.
There is no reason to suffer with pain when you can be rid of it simply and effectively. Call our office to arrange a prompt appointment.
