If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, you may well have a tooth that has infected or damaged pulp in its interior. If this is the case, you will want to visit our office, Apex Endodontics, to see our expert endodontist, Dr. Michael Sang Ro. At our endodontic clinic in Old Tappan NJ, you will be able to receive expert root canal treatment to save your tooth.
If a tooth has infected or damaged pulp in its center the only way that it can be saved is to receive a root canal treatment at our endodontic clinic in Old Tappan NJ. When you come to our office, our dentist will evaluate your specific tooth situation and determine whether or not a root canal procedure is needed. At that time, our endodontist will also be able to determine whether the treatment can be performed in one or two office visits, if needed. If the tooth is too damaged, the tooth will need to be extracted and replaced. However, the good news is that root canal treatment at our endodontic clinic is successful in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed on an infected tooth, the more likely it is to be successful. So you want to visit our office at the earliest sign of tooth pain. Today, patients are able to receive root canal treatment at our office while they remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair. This is due to our use of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and our use of modern dental anesthesia. Once the tooth has healed from the root canal procedure there is no reason that the tooth will not remain healthy in your mouth for as long as any of your other permanent teeth will.
