If your tooth is severely decayed, injured, or infected, our gentle dentist may recommend root canal therapy. Decay, damage, and injury that reach deep inside the tooth can cause infection in the dental pulp and tooth nerve. This can lead to several painful symptoms, including:
- Intense tooth pain when biting and chewing
- Extreme tooth sensitivity
- Tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums
- A recurring pimple on the surrounding gums
If you suffer from these symptoms, you may benefit from root canal therapy. During root canal therapy, Dr. Romisher removes the infected dental pulp and tooth nerve. He will then fill in the tooth and seal it; a dental crown may be needed to ensure that the tooth is effectively sealed and to restore the tooth’s function and structure. In Merchantville, New Jersey, root canal therapy can be completed in only two pleasant, comfortable visits to our dental office. Our skilled dental team will ensure that the root canal treatment is as painless as possible. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how root canal therapy can restore the health of your smile. We are dedicated to improving your oral health!
