With our modern techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, we can complete a root canal efficiently with minimal discomfort for you.

When a Root Canal Is Necessary

If the nerve, or pulp, of a tooth is infected or inflamed, you will probably experience a toothache. Left untreated, it may mean that you lose your tooth. It’s important to seek help if you experience the following:

  • A chip, hole or crack in a tooth
  • An abscess or a lesion on the gums
  • Discoloration of a tooth
  • Long-lasting or severe tooth sensitivity
  • Severe Pain in a tooth
  • Swelling of the face or neck
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums

What to Expect During a Root Canal

A root canal can be done in a single appointment or over 2-3 visits and spread over some months depending on each situation and what is most appropriate. The first step is to have a consultation where we’ll make sure that a root canal treatment is the best way to proceed.

During the procedure, local anaesthetic is administered so that you’ll feel numbed. Then, a pulpectomy is performed, during which the infection is removed from the root canal. The nerve tissue in the tooth root is replaced with a wax material. The space is sealed off and a filling done.

At a follow-up visit, you’ll have a crown or another form of dental restoration placed on the tooth to stabilize and strengthen it.
