We all get just one set of permanent teeth—that’s the way it goes. Drs. Bo and Christina Levitsky will assist you in any way they can to hang onto those teeth for a lifetime. However, things happen—and sometimes factors like genetics work against you, too. If you should need a tooth or teeth extracted, Mullica Hill Family Dental will be here to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
Root canals have always gotten very negative publicity—especially for a procedure that almost always saves the natural tooth, which is Mullica Hill Family Dental’s preferred outcome. These days, root canals are so routine that the procedure is comparable to having a tooth filled. Modern techniques and anesthetics have simplified the process greatly over the years.
The purpose of a root canal is to remove infection from a tooth. If your tooth has an inflamed or infected pulp, a root canal can save it by eliminating that infection. Drs. Bo and Christina Levitsky clean out the infection, removing damaged tissues. The inside of the tooth is then disinfected and filled with rubber sealant to close the gap.
Once the gap is filled, a crown or filling is placed on top to protect the tooth. Once that is done, the tooth functions just like the surrounding teeth, working with them as a team—and you still have your tooth!
