A Swedesboro, NJ Root Canal Will Relieve Your Tooth Pain

If you have an infected tooth, you may have the choice of a root canal or an extraction. Swedesboro, NJ dentist Dr. Elizabeth Fox will assess the condition of your tooth and walk you through the pros and cons of both procedures so you can decide which is right for you. But there are some good reasons for choosing root canal therapy:

  • Your smile will look the same. Because a root canal procedure preserves your tooth, your smile should look the same as before.
  • It doesn’t live up to its reputation. Though it has a reputation as a painful procedure, up-to-date techniques and local anesthesia make root canal therapy a comfortable treatment for most people.
  • You’ll keep your oral function. With your tooth structure intact, you’ll enjoy the same oral function. And you won’t need to worry about suffering the bone loss that results from a missing tooth.
  • You won’t need a tooth replacement. If you get a tooth extracted, you’ll likely want a dental implant or other tooth replacement, which will involve an added cost.
  • You’ll require less follow-up care. Most people recover quickly following root canal therapy.

To find out if you need root canal therapy, call 856-997-2767.
