While tooth loss is a dental problem that many patients fear, the thought of undergoing root canal treatment to save the affected pearly white is often scarier. The truth is, while the procedure may have once been incredibly painful and uncomfortable one, today’s modern technology, anesthesia and advanced tools have made the panic many patients undergo about it completely unnecessary. In fact, root canal therapy has an incredibly high success rate; it can help rescue injured or decayed teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted! At Resnick and Rosenfeld DDS, our team wants nothing more than to help you maintain a perfectly healthy and whole smile for years to come. That’s why we’re happy to offer root canal treatment right here at our Edison, NJ practice!
What exactly is a root canal?
When a tooth is seriously injured or decayed, it can allow damaging bacteria access into its inner canals, which then infects the nerves (often referred to as ‘pulp) as well. This disease can even spread to other healthy teeth if left untreated! Thankfully, with the help of root canal treatment, Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld can create an opening in the affected tooth, clean out the bacteria and infected pulp, and thoroughly seal the area so that further bacteria can’t find a way in. In order to restore full functionality to the tooth, we usually also create a custom-made crown as a finishing touch.
Our Edison, NJ practice is committed to providing maximum comfort and relaxation to patients during root canal treatments by combining the most modern techniques with a biomedical perspective. In fact, most root canal treatments can now be completed in a single visit!
Don’t let infection destroy your hard-earned smile – with Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld’s help, our team can use root canal treatment to keep your teeth healthy and happy! Contact our Edison office today with any questions you may have root canal treatment, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment. We also serve the areas of Clark, Plainfield, Scotch Plains, Westfield, and Colonia.
