Getting root canal therapy is not a negative experience, even though it has gotten that reputation. Not only does it provide relief for unpleasant symptoms that you’re experiencing, but here at Lakehurst Dental, you will also benefit from the implementation of advanced techniques and equipment that make the process comfortable and that promote an even higher level of successful outcomes.
Our Toms River root canal becomes necessary when your tooth’s pulp, which is located inside the tooth, at its base, next to the nerve, becomes damaged or infected. Some of the common reasons that this occurs are having a large cavity, a deep filling, a chipped or cracked tooth, or when the tooth suffers some form of dental trauma, such as through an accident or an injury. The most obvious indication is pain. Depending on the situation, that pain can become quite severe and excruciating, especially when you attempt to chew or you apply any pressure to the tooth. Sensitivity to hot and cold items is also typical. In some instances, you might also notice gum tenderness or tooth discoloration. Seek out our Toms River root canal as the solution. Without it, you would continue to suffer, and you would end up having to lose the tooth entirely. You will be kept comfortable through the use of local anesthesia. Most patients say that they felt very little or even no discomfort as the procedure is being performed, so you can set your mind at ease. It may take more than one session to complete the procedure, particularly if the tooth in question has more than one canal. Once the tooth heals fully, you will have a crown fitted to restore the tooth to full function and size.
Whether or not you need our Toms River root canal, you should contact our office right away when you have any tooth pain. The more quickly you act, the better chance there is of a positive result.
