Root Canal Treatment

Patients often think root canals are a dreaded procedure in dental care, however with advanced technology and techniques it’s a lot more comfortable then it was in the past.

Root canals are a procedure that replaces a tooth’s infected pulp, or damage with a filling. If the pulp is infected by decay it can result in sensitivity or sharp pain.  The procedure can typically take two to three appointments.

  • The first appointment is to treat the infection and relieve the pain.
  • The second appointment is to clean all roots of the infected tooth.
  • A third appointment may be necessary to check on the tooth before the final filling.

If you have toothache, sharp pain, swelling in your gums or discoloration of the tooth you should book a dentist with us immediately.
