How Are Abscessed Teeth Treated?

If you have an abscessed tooth, you should see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. As you will learn in this video, dentists commonly treat a tooth abscess with a root canal.

Many people are understandably anxious about visiting a dentist for a root canal. However, thanks to new developments in laser dentistry, root canal treatment is almost entirely pain-free. A root canal involves removing the tooth’s infected inner pulp. While you may experience pain before a dentist performs a root canal, removing this damaged tissue ensures that you will not experience any further discomfort.

To learn more about getting a root canal near Hazlet, speak to a dentist at Glenwood Premier Dental by calling (732) 497-3265.
