At Ralph W. Besho, DMD, PA, we will do everything we can to save your teeth in cases of infection or injury. That is why we offer root canal treatment to our patients in East Brunswick. If you are suffering from a toothache, schedule an appointment right away to learn if root canal treatment is necessary.
Our dentist performs root canal treatment to restore a damaged or infected tooth. Inside each of your teeth is a soft tissue called dental pulp. Dental pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues, creating the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during its development. The pulp extends from the crown (the visible part of your tooth above the gumline) to the tip of the roots (where the root canals are located).
Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp can become damaged, inflamed or infected. The infection or damage can occur due to dental injuries or severe decay.
If the infected pulp is left untreated, it can cause an abscess. Signs that you have a tooth abscess include toothache, sensitivity to cold or heat, pain when chewing, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or drainage.
If you experience any symptoms of a tooth abscess, call our office right away. We offer same-day emergency appointments and will try to see you as soon as possible.
While some patients try to have the tooth pulled to alleviate their symptoms, our dentist recommends performing root canal treatment to save the tooth. We will perform root canal treatment to clear out the infected pulp and thoroughly clean the tooth. Then we will repair the tooth in most cases with a dental crown.
If you need a crown, we can usually place it in one to two appointments. Our crowns are made from high-quality porcelain to restore the natural look, strength and function of your tooth.
Saving your natural tooth with root canal treatment will spare you a painful and expensive tooth extraction. Preserving your tooth also has other benefits, such as maintaining your natural bite and protecting your other teeth from excessive strain due to tooth loss.
