Our root canal treatment in Fords and Woodbridge, NJ is done in order to remove infected pulps and save natural tooth giving it new life. The treatment relieves patients from toothache and any other problem caused by pulp inflammation.
Tooth decay and tooth damage from accidents can cause serious damage to the oral cavity by reaching out to the pulp of the tooth and infecting it. The infection can spread to the periodontium resulting in swelling and severe tooth ache.
The pulp, which basically has blood vessels and nerves, is the part which is responsible for the growth of the tooth. However, a fully grown tooth can survive without a pulp since it can be nurtured by surrounding tissues. The process of root canal treatment is based on this fact. An infected pulp is better removed than staying in the tooth and spreading the infection to gums. In root canal treatment the dentist removes the infected pulp by carving an opening into the tooth. The tooth is then filled with gutta-percha and filling materials which protect the tooth from dangers. A crown may be fit over the tooth which is treated in order to strengthen it.
The procedure takes place in few steps.
