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.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

I just started going to Dr. Singer. He and his teams views on health, nutrition and lifestyle management are very much in line with my own. It's really hard to find solid Dentist who is also holistic. So far I really like the practice and am looking forward to working with them for years to come.

I have been a patient for a while and have only good things to say about Dr. Singer’s practice. The office is immaculate and the entire staff is friendly, efficient, caring and highly skilled. Dr. Singer takes time and explains what he’s doing every step of the way and after procedures he follows up himself to make sure all is well which it always is. I recently needed an emergency visit during the pandemic and knew that his office would be safe to visit because of their history of best hygienic practices. They now adhere to an even higher standard ensuring the safety of staff and patients alike.

I throughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Singer and his team. From my first scheduling call with Laurie to getting set up with Kelly and to my examination with Dr. Singer everything was seamless.When going to a new doctor/dentist office one is always worried that the staff can be unfriendly at times. However, Dr. Singer’s team was so warm and friendly which made me feel very comfortable.If you’re looking for a new dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Singer!

I’ve been to about 10 dentists, dr singer has been my favorite thus far. He has the latest technology, ozonated water, and leans in a more natural direction. He’s IAOMT accredited, is always very respectful of my time & gets me right in, is very direct & transparent with my teeth & has excellent bedside manner. Give him a try, I wholeheartedly recommend 🙏
