Root canals save your natural teeth in Montville, NJ

“Root canal.” As a dental practice, we know well the reaction that those simple two words can elicit! But root canal therapy is actually comfortable and can relieve a tremendous amount of pain. If you are a patient in the Montville, Parsippany, Lincoln Park, Kinnelon, or neighboring NJ areas and in pain, searching for “how to save a tooth,” root canal therapy at Ferrari Dental may be the answer. We perform root canals (also called endodontic therapy) regularly in our practice as a way to restore health back to an infected tooth.

When are root canals recommended?

Root canal therapy is recommended when the inner area of a tooth, called the pulp, becomes infected. The pulp chamber contains blood vessels, pain-sensing nerves, and other tissues, and occasionally dental decay and infection can move deep into this area and cause intense pain. When this happens, a root canal is often the only way to save the tooth, with the only alternative being extraction. Getting the tooth pulled might seem like a better choice at first, but having a missing tooth can lead to oral health consequences for years down the road and replacing a missing tooth can be time-intensive and have longer recovery periods than root canal treatment.

How we perform a root canal

Performing a root canal is straightforward and can be done within a short amount a time, getting you out of pain and back to your normal life.

  • First, we help you get comfortable by administering sedation as needed for relaxation and numbing the area that will be treated so it is completely pain-free
  • We drill a small hole into the tooth to access the pulp chamber and then remove the infected tooth pulp and, if necessary, the roots to help prevent the infection from spreading into your jaw

  • Then, we clean and disinfect the area inside the tooth to eliminate the infectious material and insert a rubber-like material called gutta percha into the chamber
  • Finally, we place either a filling or a crown on top of the tooth to seal it off, restore its function, and protect it from further damage and infection

The end result is a pain-free tooth that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile and feels great.
