Do you feel acute and intense pain in one of your teeth? Has one of your teeth changed color, becoming darker? A root canal therapy may be necessary.
A root canal treatment may be necessary if you are experiencing a localized toothache, prolonged tooth sensitivity, a cracked tooth, swollen gums around a tooth, an abscess or pimple on the gums, or a dark tooth.
Given our dentists’ experience, you will find that a root canal treatment isn’t more unpleasant than a simple filling. If the idea of a root canal makes you nervous, our dental clinic offers you several options including sedation therapy. Get more information at our dental clinic in Laval.
Most root canal treatments will be done in one visit. After treatment, the tooth will remain fragile and brittle and is at risk for fracture. A dental crown or a dental bridge is necessary.
- The dentist will access your tooth infection and will clean it using vibrations and an antibacterial agent.
- Severals X-Rays will be taken during the whole procedure to ensure complete disinfection of the root canal system of your tooth
- Once the tooth is clean, the dentist will fill the root canal system with a standard filling material.
- To finish, the dentist will then restore your tooth with a crown or bridge, or a temporary filling.
