Riverview Dentistry offers root canals for patients that are suffering from tooth inflammation or infection.
Root canal therapy is a treatment that involves the removal of the pulp (nerves and blood vessels) from the inside of the inflamed, infected or dead tooth in order to prevent it from becoming a source of continuing infection.
During a root canal, our experienced team will place a local anaesthetic to the area where the root canal will take place. Our team will use technological equipment to remove the infected pulp from your tooth and fill in the hollow area in the tooth. We commonly recommend a crown on the root canaled tooth to provide long-term strength.
In most situations there is no discomfort after a root canal, although some minor tenderness may be experienced for a short period of time.
You may be prescribed medication such as an anti-inflammatory or antibiotics.
After your root canal, you will be able to enjoy food and drinks without sensitivity or pain due to heat, cold, or pressure.
Here are a few benefits of root canal treatment:
