At Ocean Dental in Burnaby, we perform root canal therapy to restore teeth affected by decay or an infection.
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection.
Are you experiencing discomfort? Give us a call and learn how Ocean Dental can help!
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.
Having it done is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that would otherwise die and have to be removed.
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.
