Root Canal Therapy

At Ocean Dental in Burnaby, we perform root canal therapy to restore teeth affected by decay or an infection.

What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection.

In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay, are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.

What are the signs and symptoms to pay attention to for a root canal?

  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Severe toothache pain
  • Swelling and/or tenderness
  • Any kind of pain or sensitivity to the tooth
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present

What are the reasons for root canals?

  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth)
  • Infection or abscess has developed inside the tooth or at the root tip
  • Injury or trauma to the tooth

Having it done is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that would otherwise die and have to be removed.

What can I expect after my appointment?

After treatment, your tooth may still be sensitive, but this will subside as the inflammation diminishes and the tooth has healed. You will be given detailed care instructions after each appointment. It's good to keep in mind that daily oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your root canal treatment.
