Root Canals Princeton, NJ
Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma, DDS, PhD

The permanent teeth are mature, adult teeth that are meant to last for a person’s lifetime. Taking care of them properly helps to ensure that your smile is healthy and complete. While no one plans on damage happening to a tooth, decay, infection, and trauma can all lead to the impairment of the oral health. Teeth are living features of the human body, and any type of damage can lead to pain and loss. One of the most common dental procedures done to save a tooth and restore the health of the entire mouth is root canals.

Many people have an unwarranted view of root canals, and they allow this misconception to keep them from receiving the treatment that they need. If you are under the impression that root canals are painful, please understand this: damaged and infected teeth are painful, and root canals are performed to relieve your pain! Root canals are done specifically to restore the health of a tooth so that it can remain inside your mouth. A damaged or infected tooth is extremely painful because the living tissues and nerves of the tooth are directly affected. If a damaged tooth is left untreated, the pain will become unbearable and the tooth so severely damaged that it cannot be saved.

At Prime Dental Care, we want to help all of our dental patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health. We understand that anxiety over dental procedures can cause some patients to avoid necessary treatments, and our practice is committed to going to great lengths to ensure your comfort is a top priority. Root canals are a relatively straight forward procedure that is done in five steps:

  • Anesthesia is administered so that patients do not feel pain or discomfort during the procedure.
  • The tooth is opened, typically from the top.
  • The decay, infection, damage is cleaned out of the tooth.
  • Antibiotics are put directly in the tooth to prevent any infection from spreading.
  • The tooth is sealed with a complete filling to protect it from further damage.

Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma leads the entire staff at Prime Dental Care with a dedication to patient health and comfort. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums and beautiful, confident smiles. If you have any pain or damage to your teeth, please contact us today.

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place
