If you have a tooth that becomes painful when you eat something that is hot or cold, or you have a tooth that is surrounded by red and irritated gums, you may need to have a root canal therapy treatment. Whenever you experience tooth pain, contact us at Koplin Dental, where our dentist, Dr. Michael W. Koplin, can provide you with a root canal in Mt Laurel NJ, if needed.
A tooth will develop serious problems if the pulp on the inside of the tooth becomes either infected or damaged. A tooth can develop these problems when infection reaches the center of the tooth or when the tooth experiences trauma. An untreated cavity, a cracked filling, a chipped tooth, or other dental problems can cause infection to reach the pulp of the tooth. When this occurs, the tooth will need to have a root canal in Mt Laurel NJ in order to be saved. If this treatment is not provided, the tooth will eventually fall out. An infected tooth is extremely painful, and the infection can spread to other parts of your mouth, or to other parts of your body. For these reasons, whenever you feel tooth pain, you should visit our dentist so that he can determine the exact cause of the pain. If it is determined that your tooth is damaged in its interior, he will be able to provide you with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. The sooner the root canal treatment is provided, the more likely it is that the tooth will be saved. So at the earliest sign of tooth pain, we urge you to visit our dentist for immediate care. If you need to have root canal therapy, you will be happy to know that our patients remain perfectly comfortable due to the fact that we use modern dental anesthesia, and that our dentist uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques when performing this treatment.
