If you have a tooth that has damaged or infected pulp in its center, you will need to have a root canal procedure to save the tooth. At our dental practice, Ella Kerzhner DMD, our expert dentist, Dr. Ella Kerzhner, can provide you with effective Westampton root canal therapy.
If you have a tooth with damaged or infected pulp, the tooth may become painful when you eat something that is hot or cold. The tooth may also cause pain when pressure is placed upon it. However, sometimes a tooth with damaged pulp will not even be painful. This is just one reason why it is important that you have regular dental exams at our office. The sooner a root canal procedure is performed, the more likely it is to be successful. So, you should always contact our office at the earliest sign of any tooth pain. With today’s state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, our patients are able to remain perfectly comfortable during their root canal therapy. Once our dentist has had a chance to examine your tooth, she will let you know whether a root canal procedure is needed, and whether it will be performed in one or two office visits. Following the treatment, you may experience soreness or inflammation of the gums, but over-the-counter pain relievers are usually more than sufficient in providing relief for this problem. During the root canal treatment, all damaged and infected pulp will be removed from the tooth. The tooth and root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent further reinfection. After your Westampton root canal, you will want to make sure that you establish an excellent at-home tooth cleaning procedure to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
For an appointment to meet with our dentist regarding receiving a Westampton root canal treatment, simply contact our office. If you need an emergency appointment due to tooth pain, please let our office staff know and this will be arranged.
