If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may have a tooth that has infected or damaged pulp in its center. If this is the case, you should visit us at South Jersey Family Dental where our expert dentist, Dr. Baqir Jaffery, will be able to assess your tooth situation and determine whether or not you need to have a Turnersville root canal treatment.
If a tooth is damaged or infected in its pulp, the only way it can be effectively treated is with a Turnersville root canal. If the tooth needs to have this treatment and does not receive it, the tooth will only worsen in condition and eventually fall out. The good news is that today teeth can be saved by a root canal procedure in over 90% of cases. And, our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable while they have this dental care at our office due to our use of state-of-the-art dental equipment, modern dental technology, and our use of effective dental anesthesia. During the root canal treatment, all infected or damaged pulp is removed from the center of the tooth. The tooth and entire root canal system are then thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent reinfection. Once the tooth has thoroughly healed from the root canal procedure, there is no reason why it will not be able to remain in your mouth for as long as any other tooth you have. Our dentist will need to assess your particular dental situation to determine whether or not your tooth can be saved by a root canal procedure. He will also let you know if the treatment will need to be performed in one or two office visits.
