Call us immediately if you have a persistent toothache to see if root canal therapy in our Brick Township, NJ dental office might be needed.
At the center of your tooth is a collection of tissues, blood vessels, and nerve endings called the pulp. It’s normally well-protected beneath a layer of hard enamel. However, bacteria can slip inside the tooth if the enamel is cracked or worn away by extensive decay. If your pulp becomes infected, you’ll experience persistent pain. The infection cannot get better on its own, so the only way to stop the infection from spreading and causing further damage is to remove it with root canal therapy.
