Root Canals and Endodonics in Cherry Hill, NJ
Root canal therapy is an offshoot of endodontics. A root canal is one of the most commonly performed dental procedures. The treatment repairs and saves teeth that have been infected due to a deep cavity or crack. It involves removing the nerves of the tooth to clean the infected area very well. The nerve and tooth pulp are not important to a tooth’s health once they are completely removed. And if the treatment is not finished, a bacteria build up can spread to the remaining teeth, so it indeed must be performed. You do not want the infection to spread to the bone nearby. This treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental extractions.
Major signs that a root canal is necessary:
Severe tooth pain
Pain while chewing
Pain in your tooth waking you up out of sleep
Painful sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
Darkening and discoloring of the tooth
Swollen and painful gums
If you experience any of the above symptoms, sensitivity to hot and cold, and any pain in the tooth and gum, you may need a root canal therapy to treat the tooth. You can visit Dr. Lee to have your condition diagnosed with a proper x-ray.
Root canal therapy may take more than one visit. If it does, a temporary filling will be placed on your tooth in order to protect the tooth between visits. Then later it will be removed, re-cleaned, and a permanent filling or crown will be placed over the tooth. It will be done in such a way that others will not recognize you had the treatment!
The great news about root canal therapy and endodontics is that it has a high success rate! The teeth undergoing the procedure can be saved from infection, and you can remain in good dental health!

How does PIPS work?
PIPS harnesses the power of the Er:YAG laser to create photo acoustic shock waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canal. The containment of the shockwaves thoroughly streams these solutions through the entire canal system, enhancing their effectiveness. The canals and sub canals are left clean and the dentinal tubules are free of smear layer. PIPS is equally effective for final water rinsing prior to obturation.
