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.
