Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld Can Help Bring Back Infected Teeth from the Brink with Root Canal Therapy
November 4, 2013
Out of all the dental procedures a person can undergo, “root canal” always seems to be the phrase that sends potential patients running for the door. It seems that over time, the procedure has developed a bad reputation for being a needlessly invasive and painful procedure. While this may have been true in the past when more rudimentary tools and procedures were relied on, our team at Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS, is happy to be the first to let you know that today, root canal therapy is a perfectly smooth and simple procedure when supplemented with advanced anesthesia and technology options. In fact, the procedure can rescue severely injured or decayed teeth that are facing extraction and restore them to full health! Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld understand how important it for patients to retain their natural pearly whites; that’s why they’re happy to offer root canal therapy at their Edison, NJ office as way to keep patients’ smiles safe and whole for years to come!
What happens during root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy takes only one appointment to complete, and the process is simple enough. We’ll create an opening in the affected tooth so as to thoroughly clean out the bacteria and diseased pulp within the canals that have been causing the problem. Then, we’ll seal off the area to protect it from further infection. Finally, we’ll create a customized crown that will fully restore the tooth’s form and function. When we’re finished, it’ll be difficult to tell there was ever anything wrong with the tooth in the first place!
Okay, but will it hurt?
Thankfully, most people who undergo root canal therapy say that the procedure hurts no more than receiving a common filling does. In fact, we think root canal therapy’s benefits far outweigh any momentary discomfort – it has an incredibly high success rate, and many teeth that are treated go on to last a lifetime. Isn’t that something to smile about?
Contact our Edison office today to schedule an appointment! Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld are also happy to welcome patients from Clark, Plainfield, Scotch Plains, Westfield, Colonia, and beyond.

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!
