When a tooth has been severely compromised by injury or decay, bacteria can seep in and infect the center layer of core tissues, blood vessels and nerves, which comprise the dental pulp. When the dental pulp becomes damaged or dies, you may experience the unpleasant sensations of a toothache. If you experience sensitivity to hot and cold, pain when biting down or any other type of oral discomfort, we urge you to call our office immediately. As a first step in care, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine if a Bernardsville root canal is required. A root canal involves gently removing the damaged dental pulp, cleaning the pulp chamber and then sealing the tooth with biocompatible materials to prevent subsequent infection. Our friendly team strives to mitigate any worry or discomfort you may experience during your course of care, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding treatment. Root canal therapy has a 95% rate of success for resolving infection and saving a damaged tooth from extraction. Following your root canal, we may recommend restoring your tooth with a dental crown, which helps strengthen and protect the underlying tooth structure and improves the tooth’s function and appearance.
With the use advanced technology and methods, your Bernardsville root canal is as comfortable as a routine dental filling. At Basking Ridge Dental Group we prioritize your comfort at every visit. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
