Dr. Josephine Carapezza, DDS, of Cosmetic Dentistry of Hawthorne, NJ specializes in root canal procedures in Hawthorne, NJ. Root canal therapy treats teeth that are suffering from deep decay, dental trauma or infection. Root canal therapy also repairs chipped or cracked teeth.
We perform endodontic procedures that treat diseased or injured teeth. Endodontics, or root canal therapy, eliminates tooth infection by removing the inside structures of a diseased tooth.
A root canal is the inner hollow tooth chamber that contains dental pulp, including nerves, tissues and blood vessels. When the pulp in your tooth is injured, it dies and can result in a cracked tooth or cavity. The pulp needs to be removed to prevent an abscess, which damages the bone.
Root canal treatment prevents infection from spreading, saves your tooth and restores oral health.
Our dental team will examine your teeth to diagnose severe tooth decay and infected pulp.
