Root Canals for Residents in and around Lincoln Park and Totowa
Your teeth are made up of at least three layers. The first is a protective layer of enamel. Then, beneath that, is a layer of sensitive dentin. And lastly, inside is where the pulp comprising the tooth’s “nerve” is located. Typically, dental therapies focus on the outside of teeth, through fillings or dental crowns. But sometimes, because of a deep cavity or an injury, the inner pulp can be damaged. When that happens, something has to be done to save the tooth and prevent an infection from developing. That’s where root canal therapy comes in.
If you need help saving a tooth with a root canal, Dr. Rana of Comprehensive Dental in Lincoln Park and Totowa can help. As a comprehensive dental practice, we pride ourselves on the complete selection of services we can perform in-house. Dr. Rana can treat most root canal cases in his Lincoln Park or Totowa dental office, where our entire team’s light touch and our office’s compassionate ambiance make a routine procedure like root canal therapy as pleasant as possible.
What Should I Expect from Root Canal Therapy?
Often, the most pressing question on the minds of patients who need root canal therapy is, “Will my root canal hurt?” The answer is that, with today’s advanced analgesics and technology, the process can be much more comfortable than you ever thought. What’s more, most root canal procedures can be completed in just a single appointment. The process involves cleaning out the affected canal by removed the inflamed nerve tissue. Then, the canal is filled with an inert substance called gutta-percha. And finally, it’s sealed to prevent any further problems with infection.
Caring for Your Smile Afterwards
For most patients, treating any soreness following a root canal procedure can be done with a simple, over-the-counter pain reliever, like Tylenol or Advil. To make sure that your smile stays clean and healthy, a regular brushing and flossing routine is recommended, as are regular visits to one of Dr. Rana’s dental offices. Professional cleanings and oral exams are instrumental to making sure that teeth and gums stay healthy year-round. We recommend coming to see us twice a year to keep your smile at its healthiest.
