Root Canal Therapy at Westbank Dental
Guaranteeing Your Comfort and Well-Being
Root canal therapy can save a severely damaged tooth from extraction when its pulp becomes infected or inflamed. The pulp contains a collection of inner tissues and nerves that lie within the tooth’s root canal. If the infected pulp does not receive prompt treatment, pain and other complications will arise.
Root canal treatment can be completed in just one to two visits at Westbank Dental. Using up-to-date rotary technology, most patients are surprised by how comfortable these visits can be! After a root canal, the tooth will need a crown or other restoration to make the tooth strong again.
Do I Need a Root Canal?
If any of the following symptoms look familiar to you, contact us to schedule an exam.
- Tooth or gum pain
- Discoloration in the teeth or gums
- Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- Pus drainage in the mouth
- Tooth tenderness
- Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes
However, not all patients notice the warning signs of an infected tooth. Keep up with your regular exams and x-rays so that your dentist can determine what treatments you need to maintain total health.
What Can I Expect from Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy involves removing the diseased pulp, cleaning out the root canal of the tooth, and sealing the affected areas to prevent re-infection.
