If you are experiencing severe pain in the center of your tooth, you may need a root canal. Jeffrey S. Thaller DMD specializes in root canal treatments for our clients in Westfield, NJ. A root canal is necessary when the dental pulp becomes infected or diseased. We will remove the infected pulp, thoroughly clean your tooth and seal it.
Root Canal Symptoms
- Swelling of the gums
- Pain of the gums
- Severe toothache
- Tooth sensitivity to hot & cold
- Pimple on gums that will not disappear
How We Conduct Your Root Canal Therapy
When you come into our office, we will take an x-ray of the possibly infected tooth. We’ll carefully examine it and the surrounding areas for any sign of infection. Our dentist will create a hole to clean out the infected dental pulp and any sign of bacteria. We will then seal it with a dental filling.
