General Dentist 07712

Have you ever needed root canal therapy? It often gets a bad reputation for being especially difficult on the patient, overly time consuming, and downright uncomfortable. Our Wanamassa dentist, Dr. Marc Berley, and the rest of our excellent team of staff are here to debunk those root canal myths, and offer an even easier root canal experience than ever before. First, it is important to know why root canal therapy is used as a treatment option. Dr. Berley usually recommends root canal therapy if you have a tooth in which the pulp has been infected. The pulp is the soft, tissue-filled center of each of your teeth. The pulp becomes infected if a tooth has become decayed or cracked, leaving the pulp exposed to the bacteria floating around your mouth.

If you have an infected tooth, you will notice symptoms such as tooth pain, increased tooth sensitivity, increased tooth pain when chewing or biting down, and in some cases there will be a darkening or discoloration of the tooth as a result of the infection. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Wanamassa dentist so that we can determine if a root canal or another treatment option is necessary. The main purpose of root canal therapy is to remove the infected pulp, clear away any excess bacteria in the area, and seal up the tooth to prevent future infections.

Dr. Berley makes this process even easier. In most cases, we can complete the root canal treatment in just one visit at our office. This is possible because we are able to determine the length of the canal without x-rays, and because Dr. Berley can control the cleaning with the use of a fast, smooth rotary instrument and rapidly fill the canal with the sealing material. Patients are beyond satisfied with this highly effective and convenient procedure. We can let you know if this is an option for you during your next visit at our office.

We look forward to working with you.
