At Art of Dental Care: Ellen Rado DDS, we regularly perform a root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients’ teeth. We can complete the procedure and work to keep patients comfortable. Root canals are a common procedure. If you live in the Green Brook area and are currently experiencing tooth pain, we invite you to call (732) 424-8483 to schedule an appointment and see if you need a root canal endodontic treatment.
At her Green Brook, NJ dental office Dr. Ellen Rado has been involved in the endodontic field for more than twenty years and is very efficient with root canal treatments. Root canal treatment is one of the most sophisticated and challenging procedures in dentistry. At the same time, this procedure is unjustly shunned due to their lack of visible results and possible temporary postoperative discomfort. Most people’s knowledge about root canal treatment is based solely on their friends’ experiences.
However, root canal treatments if properly executed, can save a tooth from being extracted and extend its life for many years ahead.
To keep abreast of the new achievements in endodontics Dr. Ellen Rado attends endodontic seminars given by prominent endodontist Dr. Steven Buchanan, in his endodontic laboratory in Santa Barbara, CA, or listens to his lectures here, in NJ.
Contemporary anesthesia makes the root canal treatment procedures painless. The procedure helps to eliminate severe pain, swelling, and sensitivity to hot and cold. Inflamed nerve symptoms will quickly confirm the necessity of dental treatment. Root canal treatment can be done under sedation if the patient is apprehensive. During this procedure, Dr. Rado cleans out the inflamed nerve and seals the space. Teeth with root canal treatments need to be restored. Restorative treatment can range from a simple filling to a large post and core with the porcelain crown placed on the tooth later. This is done to protect the tooth from fracture and following extraction.
If you need a Root canal Treatment call our office Art of Dental Care, Ellen Rado DDS at 732-424-8483 to schedule an appointment.
Why do most people need a root canal?
When a tooth becomes infected, the infection can spread to the center of the tooth. This area is called the dental pulp. Inside of the dental pulp is the nerve and blood vessels. If the dental pulp becomes infected, pain may be excruciating and the tooth will require immediate treatment. If you live in green brook area and experience this kind of pain Dr. Ellen Rado will see you on an emergency basis. Call us at 732-424-8483. Remember, this pain may be temporarily stopped by painkillers but it always comes back and on a much stronger scale, so delays can only worsen prognosis of saving the tooth.

Why should I have a root canal endodontics treatment?
If you live in Green Brook, NJ you should schedule an appointment with us to discuss the health of your teeth, any problems that you may be having and what should be done to heal and protect the tooth. If it appears that a root canal is the best option, we will make this recommendation. If not, Dr. Rado will present an alternative treatment solution that will solve your health issue. Overall, a root canal endodontics treatment is extremely effective. This single treatment makes it possible for millions of teeth to be saved on an annual basis.
What about discomfort?
We work to help patients to feel comfortable during their root canal endodontics procedure. We have a variety of ways to eliminate both discomfort and anxiety during a root canal. Whether a patient needs to take something ahead of time to relax or medication to numb the specific area that is being worked on, we can provide painless dentistry and help patients to be comfortable during their root canal treatment.
What are the advantages of this procedure?
In the past, many people would need to have their teeth pulled if they became severely infected or the dental pulp became inflamed. Now, the same teeth can be saved by performing a root canal treatment. This is a far better option because it keeps the natural tooth in place. It is very important for the chewing function and the shape of the face – the more teeth patient misses, the more his bite collapses, the more difficult chewing becomes, and the older patient will look. By treating and saving infected teeth we are helping to preserve our patients’ facial structure and normal style of living.
The crown can be created in the exact shade of the surrounding teeth so that it will blend in perfectly. This way no one will know that you ever had a procedure completed.
Alternatively, if the tooth is impossible to save, and a root canal treatment is not inducted the infected tooth will need to be removed. This is essential for preventing the spread of infection. After the tooth was extracted its replacement will be considered. Options will include implant, bridge or partial denture. These are viable solutions but nothing is better than your own teeth. The best way is not to let your teeth get damaged beyond repair. By seeing dr. Ellen rado at her green brook dental office for regular check-ups will protect your teeth from extensive and expensive treatments.To learn more about our office call Art of Dental Care: Ellen Rado DDS at 732-424-8483 and schedule an appointment.
