ROOT CANAL THERAPY SERVICES
Despite the stories you may have heard, the reputation of pain that some people associate with having a root canal is really not deserved. For the majority of people who undergo this treatment the experience itself would be comparable to having a filling replaced.
When Root Canal Treatment is Needed?
The pulp inside a tooth can be damaged by cracks in the tooth, deep cavities or accidents.
Germs (or bacteria) can get into the tooth and lead to infected tooth pulp. This situation may cause pain and/or swelling.
Dental problems rarely get better on their own. Begin care with Blue Heron Dental group today.
Our dentists may notice:
- Changes in the colour of the tooth,
- Changes in your gums, or
- Changes picked up by a dental x-ray.
Root canal treatment can ease or prevent symptoms, and help to save the tooth. In most cases a crown will be recommended after a root canal has been completed to prevent fracture of the tooth.
