Do you have a toothache that won’t quit? Do you feel pain in your gums or are your gums swollen around a certain tooth? Does it hurt when you eat or drink something hot or cold? If so, we may be able to help you.
Pain, swelling, sensitivity, pressure, these are all signs that may tell you that a root canal is in order. More directly, they are symptoms of a problem located in the inner chamber of a tooth. Often, infection in pulp tissue results from a cavity that has been left untreated. As bacteria move inward, these microorganisms destroy healthy tissue. The good news is that pulp is not a necessity for fully developed teeth. Removing pulp in the root canal procedure eliminates infection and pain and allows us to preserve the natural tooth structure.
The Root Canal Procedure
- Our Dentist prepares the tooth just as she would to treat a cavity.
- An opening is made to the root area and pulp tissue, along with nerves and vessels, is removed.
- Root canals are sterilized with a dental solution.
- Filling material is placed into canals to prevent entry to bacteria.
- The tooth is rebuilt with a beautiful, durable dental crown.
By completing a root canal, Bright Dental Centre can help you to save your natural tooth and avoid having an extraction altogether. In addition, the tooth is far less likely to ever have any infection again as dental crowns are sturdy and durable.
