Other Dental Services
Even when we try to prevent tooth and gum disease, problems can occur. Clifton Dental Group provides effective root canal treatment for badly infected teeth and periodontal care for advanced gum disease.
Endodontic/Root Canal Treatment
Come to us for pain-free root canal treatment. We typically perform this service when the soft tissue inside a tooth, also known as the pulp, is either inflamed or dead. The pulp is a tissue made up of nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels.
The purpose of root canal treatment is to remove the inflamed tissue or bacteria inside the root canal and thus allow the surrounding tissues to heal.
What are the symptoms that indicate the need for root canal therapy?
Symptom 1: Moderate to Severe Lingering Toothache When Having Hot or Cold Foods
Symptom 2: Toothache Pain So Intense It Wakes You up at Night
Symptom 3: Pain When Chewing or Biting
Symptom 4: Swelling on Your Gum Which When Pressed May Release Blood or Pus
Symptom 5: Pain That Starts in One Tooth and Spreads to Other Regions of the Jaw or Head, e.g. an Infected Lower Molar (Back Tooth) May Cause You to Feel Pain in the Ear (Sometimes, however, there may be no symptoms. If properly performed and under normal circumstances, a root canal-treated tooth can last you a lifetime.)
