When there is irreversible damage and decay to the nerves of your teeth, root canal therapy may be the recommended course of treatment. At Dental Arts Group- Manalapan, your Manalapan dentist, we use state of the-art techniques and treatment methods to ensure your maximum comfort throughout the procedure. Root canal treatment can provide relief from toothache by addressing the underlying source of your pain.
Root canal therapy is the most effective treatment for a tooth that has been severely compromised by decay or injury. Underneath the outermost biting surface of your teeth are core tissues, nerves and blood vessels, referred to as the dental pulp. Dental pulp plays an important role in the growth and development of your teeth, however, once an adult tooth is fully developed, it no longer requires dental pulp to remain functional. When pulp becomes infected due to a deep cavity or fracture that allows bacteria to seep in or injury due to trauma, it can die. Dead or damage tooth pulp causes increased pressure, which can become painful over time. During your root canal treatment, your Manalapan dentist will remove the damaged pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber, then seal the tooth with inert material to prevent subsequent infection. We use the most innovative approaches to patient comfort, to keep you at ease throughout the procedure. Root canal therapy has a very successful outcome with ninety-five percent effectiveness in saving teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy can remain healthy and functional throughout your life. It is important to pursue root canal treatment as soon as possible to save the damaged tooth from extraction.
