We 're committed to helping those patients in need of root canal therapy at NJ Smiles Dental.
When infection damages the tooth's pulp, a root canal therapy may be required to save your tooth. This treatment includes creating an access hole in the tooth; removing the damaged pulp from this very access hole; and then disinfecting, shaping, filling and sealing the tooth. You may be put on an appropriate dental sedation prior to the procedure, depending on how much infection is present and the duration of the procedure.
For safety, the tooth may need to be capped with a crown after root canal therapy. The tooth will continue to work like your other natural teeth after that.
