Ridgefield Park, New Jersey Dentist Explains the Procedure of a Root Canal

Thursday, Jul. 28th 2011 5:29 AM

Local dentist gives detailed information about a root canal. Dr. Sherzoy said: “No need to lose your tooth when you can repair and save your tooth by having a root canal done.”

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or has become infected. During the root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inner side of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

Now many who are thinking about the nerve being taken out are worried that this may affect their health of their tooth. In truth, the nerve mostly provides sensory feeling to the tooth, providing the sensation of hot or cold. The absence of the nerve will not affect your everyday life functioning of the tooth. When a tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp is damaged it causes to break down and the bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber.

For those that are not aware, a pulp chamber contains all the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue in your teeth, which enter through the base of the tooth’s root, travel up through the root canal and gather at the pulp chamber. Bacteria and other tooth decays can cause a serious infection and an abscessed tooth. Now, many are wondering what an abscessed tooth is? An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms at the end of the root of the tooth. An abscess occurs when the infection spreads all the way past the end of the root of the tooth.
