It is always our goal- and, of course, yours- to prevent root canal problems wherever possible. Typically, when you need non-surgical root canal therapy at our Teaneck dental practice it is because of an infection that has been brought on from a deep filling, a decayed tooth, or one that has become chipped or cracked. Less commonly, facial trauma can be responsible for a root canal problem. In most cases, you will be alerted to the need for treatment because of pain. Most people who have a root canal infection will notice severe pain, especially when chewing food, exposing the tooth to extreme hot or cold temperatures, or applying any type of pressure to it. Signs that could also indicate the need for non-surgical root canal treatment but are not related to pain include tenderness in the gums or discoloration of the tooth. If you detect any of those symptoms, particularly the pain, call us immediately to schedule an appointment. Even if a root canal infection turns out not to be the reason, a severe toothache, gum tenderness, or tooth discoloration are all things that should not be ignored or very long.

Non-surgical root canal treatment generally requires more than one visit to our Teaneck dental practice, although sometimes it can be completed in a single session. You will receive a local anesthetic to numb the area first. The top of the tooth in question will be drilled to reach the root canal area. The infected pulp, nerve, and any debris discovered there will be removed and the area will be thoroughly cleaned and then sealed. If multiple visits are required, you will get a temporary crown between treatments so that the tooth will be protected until the next session. Once the work is completed, a permanent crown that you have been fitted for will be applied to complete the process.

At our Teaneck family dentist office, we place great importance on educating our patients on how to improve and maintain their oral health. There are many ways to take care of your teeth and the rest of your mouth on a daily basis at home. The first and most important way to keep your mouth healthy is to brush your teeth thoroughly and effectively. Our Teaneck family dentist recommends that you brush at least twice a day. When brushing your teeth, you should hold you toothbrush a 45-degree angle and gently brush in a circular motion. It is important to make sure that you reach each tooth and brush it well. You should also gently brush the roof of your mouth and tongue to rid your mouth of any harmful bacteria that may normally go unnoticed. Our Teaneck family dentist recommends replacing your toothbrush about four times a year, or as needed if you are sick so as to avoid re-infecting yourself.

Another important daily routine is flossing. Dental floss now comes in many different forms to make it even more convenient – there is no excuse for not flossing! Brushing and flossing will help to remove the plaque from between your teeth. When plaque builds up as a result of poor oral hygiene, it hardens and turns into tartar, and can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and many other unpleasant dental problems. That is why you should keep up with your oral hygiene and do your best to avoid the accumulation of tartar and plaque inside your mouth. Our Teaneck family dentist may also recommend that you use a mouthwash or oral rinse to keep your mouth in prime condition.

In addition to taking care of your teeth and mouth at home, it is necessary to come in to our Teaneck family dentist for a cleaning and examination at least twice a year. Our Teaneck family dentist will give you a professional cleaning using state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques that achieve results that simply are impossible to attain at home. We will also examine your mouth to see if any dental conditions have developed, and if so we will discuss treatment options with you and provide them as needed. To schedule an appointment for your next dental cleaning and exam, feel free to call our office or visit our Teaneck family dentist’s website. Until then, keep taking good care of your teeth at home.
