How a root canal from your dentists in Haworth, New Jersey can eliminate your tooth pain

If you feel nagging, aching tooth pain, you may need more than just a simple filling—a root canal may prove necessary. Fortunately, root Root_Canalcanal treatment is easier and quicker than you may think! Here at Gentle Dentistry in Haworth, NJ, our dentists eliminate your dental pain with the help of this tooth-saving procedure.

 

More about root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is performed when the innermost layer of your tooth (an area known as the pulp) is either bruised or damaged. Containing a tooth's nerves and blood supply, the pulp can cause acute pain if it has been damaged or been the victim of decay. It can also create fluid build-up and pressure inside of the tooth, an issue that can create immense issues if not taken care of.

You may need a root canal if you start noticing painful symptoms like these:

  • Acute, sharp pain when you bite down or chew
  • Chronic pain that doesn’t get better
  • Increasing pain when you consume hot or cold foods/beverages
  • Pain that continues even after a filling or crown is placed
  • Pain that radiates into other areas of your face, jaws, or head

You may also notice non-painful signs, such as:

  • A tooth becoming darker or grayer compared to the teeth next to it
  • A red or white bump on your gums next to a tooth root
  • Drainage including blood or pus coming from the bump on your gums

Root canals eliminate pain by removing the diseased, infected pulp from inside your tooth. The tissue is drawn out through a small opening created in the top of your tooth, and a sedative material is placed inside your tooth. The sedative reduces inflammation and eliminates your pain. After your tooth has calmed down, the sedative material is removed and replaced with an inert material. The opening is sealed with a small filling, and you are done!
