Root Canal

You’re nervous. Atlantic Highlands’s Dr. Robert Tanne understands that. You don’t like the idea of having a “root canal.” Frankly, this is one time when anticipation (or the drawn-out expectation of disaster) is far worse than the actual experience. What you need to think about are these three primary reasons why you may need to get a root canal:

  • * You’ll stop the toothache.
  • * You’ll prevent the bacteria (and pain) from spreading into the jaw.
  • * You’ll get to keep your real tooth instead of getting a bridge or a denture.

Dr. Tanne wants you to understand that not seeking treatment can lead to more serious trouble. The root canal, a channel that runs from the root of a tooth in the bone to the top surface of the tooth, contains nerves, blood vessels, and complex cells that comprise the living tissue inside the tooth. This so-called “lifeline” in the tooth is called the “pulp.”

A little crack or the first stages of decay is all your tooth needs to let bacteria into the pulp. Bacteria contains acid, which irritates and inflames your tooth’s pulp, just like bacteria does with any open wound on your skin. Dr. Tanne will tell you that with the pulp tissue inflamed, it becomes more difficult for the blood flow to reach the tissue, so the accumulated pressure is what causes the most noticeable pain inside your tooth.

Luckily, Dr. Robert Tanne has the highest level of expertise coupled with the most advanced endodontic technology. Call (855) 232-6954 or fill out the online form to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tanne to see for yourself—don't risk losing a tooth that can be saved!
