Have you recently been experiencing tooth, facial, gum or even jaw pain, a pimple on your gums or swelling? You may be in need of a common treatment known as a root canal! At Complete Dental Works we are happy to provide root canal treatment in West New York for our patients that are suffering from a damaged, decayed or even infected tooth root.
A root canal is an extremely common treatment option, in fact, over 15,000,000 are performed each year. During a root canal, your dentist in West New York will create a tiny hole in your tooth to access the root canal. Next, the root canal will be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and then sealed. Following a root canal, it is recommended that a dental crown is placed to prevent future issues from occurring.
When it comes to having tooth pain, it is usually a pretty good sign you should be visiting your dentist. When decay, damage or infection reaches the root of the tooth, the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues are affected, causing discomfort and pain.
When a root canal is needed, it typically means an infection is present. When infection is present, swelling and inflammation are common. Swelling on the gum tissue around your tooth, jaw or even face is a big sign you have an infection and should seek immediate help.
A fistula is similar to a pimple, however, it provides a drainage outlet for the infection occurring within your tooth. If you notice any puss or pimples on your gums, seek dental care immediately.
