Root canal treatments
When are root canal treatments recommended?
Many factors can cause irritation or inflammation of the soft tissue that surrounds the nerves and blood vessels in a tooth. Endodontic treatments are sometimes required when you have serious cavities, major restorations, accidents or fractured teeth.
Tell us if you experience:
- A sharp toothache
- Hot or cold sensitivity
- Discomfort while chewing
- Swollen gums or face
What do root canal treatments involve?
- The dental pulp is removed
- The canal is cleaned and disinfected
- The canal is filled using inert material
- The tooth is sealed
- A restoration is installed (filling or crown)
With today’s technologies, root canal treatments are not more uncomfortable than getting a filling. One of the benefits of root canal treatments is that they allow you to keep your natural tooth.
