Restore teeth suffering from severe tooth decay
Most people will experience tooth decay at some point in their life. Minor cases will require a simple filling, but more advanced cases might need root canal treatment. With a root canal, we will remove the infected tissue in your tooth and ensure that the infection does not spread any further. In most cases, this will stop decay in its tracks and ensure that you are able to keep your natural tooth.
At Burnaby Dental Centre, we’ll work with you and ensure that a root canal is the best treatment option given your unique situation.
Root canal treatment process at Burnaby Dental Centre
At Burnaby Dental Centre, we promise to always do all we can to make sure you have a positive experience at the dentist. All root canal treatments begin with a consultation to discuss what you’re experiencing and a review of your oral health history. We’ll answer your questions and perform a comprehensive exam, taking any needed x-rays to get a complete understanding of your oral health.
We’ll then discuss treatment options. Once we decide to move forward, here is what you can expect throughout the process:
- We’ll always make sure that a root canal is the best option for you to save your tooth and maintain optimal oral health.
- During the procedure, we’ll completely numb the area so the process is as comfortable as possible.
- We’ll then remove all decayed material from your tooth and clean, disinfect and seal the canal.
- After we’ve cleaned the canal, we’ll place filling material or a custom crown to preserve and protect your tooth. Generally, we can complete this at the same appointment as the root canal.
