There is nothing worse than dental decay that prevents you from the activities you love, such as eating your favorite foods. Often, you have to decide between going hungry or chewing through the excruciating pain. Before long, you’re on a liquid and soft food diet, avoiding anything too hot or too cold. Before the mushy, lukewarm foods become an issue, seek help from your local River Edge dentist. If you’re experiencing tooth pain and discomfort, you might need a root canal. To figure out the best solution for your aching teeth, schedule a consultation with Marlen Elite Dental Wellness by calling us at (201) 546-8512.
Not everyone who experiences dental decay needs a root canal. When Dr. Martirossian meets with you for a consultation for our River Edge root canals, he’ll help you decide the best treatment plan so you can start feeling better.
First, we’ll examine your tooth. For small amounts of decay, we can use a composite filling to seal the decaying area. If the decaying area is larger, we may recommend a dental crown to sit on top of your tooth. More severe decay requires a root canal procedure. This way, your dentist can clean out your tooth and give you a fresh start.
Dental decay becomes a problem when your enamel wears down and allows bacteria into your tooth. Sometimes, that bacteria finds its way down to the root of your tooth. Within your tooth’s root, a soft tissue, called pulp, remains sensitive throughout adulthood. Since the pulp assisted in your tooth’s initial growth, it contains blood vessels and nerve endings, which alert your brain of tooth pain from dental decay. During a root canal, your dentist will drill into your tooth. Then, we will remove all of the pulp in your tooth. Without the pulp, your tooth is fully functional but it won’t feel any pain. After cleaning the root canals, we’ll fill your tooth with a rubber-based pulp substitute. In the end, we’ll create a dental crown that fits your smile and looks as beautiful as it feels.
The biggest benefit of getting a root canal procedure is the fact that your teeth will stop hurting, and soon. When you receive a root canal procedure, you choose to eradicate your constant tooth pain and discomfort. Additionally, getting a root canal can prevent further decay. If you continue to push off a root canal procedure, you’ll likely need a tooth extraction instead. If your tooth decays to the point of no return, your dentist won’t be able to save the healthy parts of your tooth. Instead, you’d be looking at an extraction and tooth replacement.
Since we have the most advanced technology at Marlen Elite Dental Wellness, root canals are painless and easy. During the procedure, we use reliable and effective anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain. After getting a root canal, you may experience slight discomfort for a few days. However, it’s likely that the discomfort won’t match the pain you felt every day with your infected tooth. Within a week, your discomfort will fade away and you’ll have a functional smile yet again. You’ll be able to enjoy those chewy, crunchy treats you used to love in no time.
If you experience pain or discomfort in your teeth, and think you may need a root canal River Edge dentist, Dr. Martirossian, can help you get out of pain and back to doing what you love. Schedule an appointment with us today!
When we find dental decay early enough, you could get a composite filling or a crown to repair your enamel. However, root canals are necessary sometimes to make your mouth feel better again.

If you have any uncertainty about root canals, we’d love to talk to you and help you understand the procedure. Contact Dr. Martirossian by calling us at (201) 546-8512.
