Root Canal Therapy in Fort Lee, NJ & Surrounding Area

When tooth decay infects the root of your tooth, root canal therapy is a recommended solution that can save your tooth from dying and ultimately, tooth loss. Dr. Joel Singer performs root canals to help keep your tooth in place and prevent the need for more invasive and extensive treatments. If a damaged tooth is not treated, tooth loss can occur as well as other issues compounded by tooth loss, such as changes in your bite.

Root canal treatment, also known as a root canal, is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the inner portion of the tooth – the tooth pulp and nerves- become infected or damaged. Damage can be caused by injury or decay which reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. If the damage is not addressed, the infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and make it necessary to remove the tooth. With a root canal, however, our dentist can restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction. We will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material to keep it clean. Next, we will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in just one or two visits to our office.

Thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anesthesia, root canals can be performed with minimal discomfort. There is no need to be fearful of this transformative treatment . Our dentist and entire team will work to ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office.

To learn more about root canal treatment and how it can restore the health of a damaged tooth, please call our office today to schedule an appointment in our Fort Lee, New Jersey office at (201) 429-0097.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

warm friendly atmosphere - I was referred to another practice as my situation is very involved and requires different strategies. Even so, Dr Singer said to feel free to call on them if I had an emergency which was very reassuring.

I went in for an opinion and Dr. Singer and his staff (and a nearby specialist they called up) just went to work to rescue my front tooth in an afternoon! I did not know my tooth was in so much trouble but they have the equipment and knowledge to show you what is actually happening.

Blown away!! I'm so happy with this place.I highly recommend Dr,Singer and and his staff. They are welcoming, friendly and professional.My wife and I went for amalgam removal. Dr Singer took his time and explained everything throughly. I felt very comfortable since the first visit. I have never had great experience with Dentistry work before, but Dr Singer and his staff made sure I was comfortable. Also,they follow the Holistic Dental protocol to ensure safe amalgam removal and reverse the effects of mercury toxicity from the body. I finally got my mercury filling out and I feel great.Thank you Dr. Singer !!!Juan Carlos Alvarado
