Experiencing oral pain can be troubling. As soon as you notice any sensations that are out of the ordinary, it is recommended that you visit a dentist as soon as you can. Toothaches and other types of oral pain can often be the sign of a cavity or a trickier type of an infection – a root canal. Here at Attentive Dental Care, we offer comprehensive Morris Plains root canal care that can help target your pain, find the source of the infection, and help you recover your dental health.
Root canal infections and cavities can often share similar symptoms. Oral pain brought on by or instigated by eating or drinking, or the general act of grinding one’s jaw in the process of chewing and biting, can often be associated with both conditions. Aside from the cause of the infection, what can sometimes set root canal infections apart is the nature of the pain. Because root canal infections often involve the inflammation of the nerve ending, the pain felt with an infected root canal can also be throbbing and fairly persistent. Here at Attentive Dental Care, we can take a look at any pain you are experiencing and assess the situation before administering treatment. When it comes to treating a Morris Plains root canal, the first method of care usually involves root canal therapy. Our dentist, Karey P. Matthews, DDS, does what he can to extract the infected part of the tooth but keep the rest intact. Once the infection is out, a dental filling or dental crown can be set in place to restore the affected tooth completely.
Our office is open from Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, and our dental office uses only the latest state-of-the-art equipment and cutting edge technology while upholding the strictest sterilization techniques in order to better serve our patients.
