Totowa Root Canal
If you have tooth pain, especially when you chew or you apply pressure to the tooth, you may need root canal therapy. Don't be misled. Our Totowa root canal
is not painful at all. In fact, it's the exact opposite. It relieves the pain that you're already in. At At to Z Family Dentistry, PC, this vital non-surgical procedure is performed with expert precision and gentle care.
Our Totowa root canal
may be completed in one session, but depending on several factors, including the number of canals the tooth has, you may need more than one visit. If you have to return, your tooth will stay protected until you return with a temporary crown that our dentist will place. You will have sufficient local anesthesia so that you remain comfortable while the work is being done. Most patients say that they felt very little discomfort or even none at all during root canal therapy at our office, so you can be confident. The purpose of the procedure is to remove the damaged or infected pulp and nerve, clean the canals, disinfect them, and seal them up. If not for out Totowa root canal
, you would most probably lose your tooth. If that happened, you would have empty space that shows when you smile, or if it's a back tooth, your chewing would become compromised. In any case, your other teeth on that jaw might shift, and your jaws could be thrown out of alignment with each other. It is far better to have root canal therapy done, particularly since it has a success rate of over 90%. When the tooth heals fully, you will get a permanent crown made to restore the tooth to its normal size.
Don't let your tooth pain go unaddressed. Contact our office and schedule a timely appointment to come in for an examination and treatment.
