Fairview Root Canal

Root canal therapy in Fairview

There is no more annoying pain than that of a toothache, which most of the time is caused by decay and inflammation deep within the tooth. Dr. Michael B. Schwarz, DMD is specially equipped and trained to relieve the pain and save the affected tooth or teeth. Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as a Fairview root canal treatment, is a procedure that is done inside the tooth to eliminate inflammation and infection.

When debris and decay invades the tooth’s soft core called the pulp because of a crack, chip or other blow to the tooth’s crown inflammation and infection may develop. Our staff is dedicated to making the whole Fairview root canal procedure as painless and stress free as possible. Advances in endodontic technology and anesthesia should eliminate any pain. In an endodontic treatment Dr. Schwarz will first numbs the area and then inject a Novocain-type local anesthetic to numb the tooth down through its roots. Our dentist then opens the tooth’s crown and drills out the infected pulp using extremely small instruments. Once the roots have been completely cleaned they are sealed with a biocompatible material, gutta-percha that is combined with adhesive cement. The tooth is then given a temporary filling. Pulp is important for the tooth’s development but is not necessary once the tooth has matured.

Our dentist will complete the Fairview root canal treatment in one or two visits. The temporary filling is removed and replaced with a permanent restoration, usually a crown. After an endodontic treatment at our office the tooth is generally as strong as it ever was and should remain perfectly functional for the foreseeable future. The pain is gone, the inflammation and possible infection are gone and the tooth will remain in tact. If you have a tooth that hurts or is sensitive to temperature extremes please come to our practice so we can help relieve the pain.

Often we are taught to simply ignore the pain until it goes away, but when it comes to a toothache, the pain you feel is often the sign of a far more serious problem. Whether the ache is tolerable, or waking you up in the middle of the night in agony, a toothache is not to be ignored. Toothaches of any degree are often a symptom of a root canal infection, a condition that will not go away without professional treatment from your Cliffside Park dentist at the offices of Michael B. Schwarz, DMD. Our welcoming and knowledgeable staff can treat the source of your pain, so you can get back to living life to the fullest, with a smile that is healthy and beautiful once more.

Root canals happen for many different reason, making them more common that many of us think. If you have had an injury to the face or jaw, the resulting trauma can cause a tooth to become cracked or chipped, causing a weakness in your dentin for the bacteria in your mouth to enter and spread infection to the sensitive nerves and inner pulp deep within your tooth. Repeated dental procedures from your Cliffside Park dentist to the same area of your mouth can cause your teeth or gums to become sensitive or weakened, allowing this to happen in much the same manner as an injury. However, despite these causes, the most common reason a root canal infection happens is due to simple tooth decay, which can spread from poor dental hygiene and unhealthy eating habits.

Symptoms of a root canal infection include, but are not limited to, a severe toothache when pressure of any kind is applied to the inflamed area, pain or sensitivity that remains for some time after your hot or cold food or drink has long left your mouth, a tooth that is darker than your other natural teeth, swollen or sensitive surrounding gum line, or a pimple on your gums that simple will not quit despite your best efforts to remove it. Root canal infections are caused by decay, so bad breath can accompany them as well. Your local Cliffside Park dentist can provide an exact diagnosis and treatment that will work to remove the infected area and insure that the infection never returns.

Just because your root canal infection brings you great amounts of pain does not mean your root canal therapy has to either. At your trusted Cliffside Park dentist through the offices of Michael B. Schwarz, DMD our staff utilizes the latest in local anesthesia to keep you comfortable as we work to remove your infection and keep it from ever coming back. Our welcoming and knowledgeable staff will work with you to medicate and fill the infected region to keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
