At Dundas East Dental, Dr. Ali Al-Rubayee, our root canal dentist is a strong advocate for preserving natural tooth structure. We strive to avoid tooth extractions whenever possible. Root canal treatment helps prevent the necessity of tooth extraction by restoring and strengthening a tooth weakened by trauma or decay.
Root canal treatment is a simple and commonly performed dental procedure. Root canal therapy helps to preserve teeth that have damaged or infected pulp, by removing the damaged pulp to prevent further infection. The tooth is then filled and strengthened with a dental crown.
Many patients are apprehensive about root canal treatment due to the misconception that this procedure may be painful. Although, thanks to modern dental techniques, this procedure can be painless and completed in as little as one or two appointments.
Some symptoms of root canal pain may include tender gums, jaw ache, toothache, prolonged sensitivity to cold/hot, persistent pimple on the gums, gums swelling, and pains when applying pressure or biting down.
Root canal after care is minimal. Root canal pain consists of only temporary tenderness lasting about two or three days and can be treated with simple over-the-counter pain medication. With daily oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing, a root canal treated tooth can last a life-time.
Root canal complications are uncommon. However, as with all dental procedures and treatments, a lack of oral hygiene may cause teeth to become susceptible to cavities, decay, and infection. Our team of dedicated dentists will fully explain proper after care treatment and oral hygiene.
