Our dentists at South Granville Dentistry in Vancouver use root canal therapy to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted, relieving pain or symptoms associated with the infected tooth.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could be a sign you need a root canal. Be sure to visit your dentist for a proper diagnosis.
Inside each tooth is a pulp chamber that contains the nerves and blood supply for the tooth.
When the pulp becomes infected due to decay or injury, the pulp must be removed from the canals of each root to prevent pain and prevent the infection from spreading.
Once the infected pulp is removed, the remaining chamber is filled with a rubber-based material to seal it off. The tooth is then covered with a dental crown to protect it from any future damage.
We are always happy to accept new patients to our dental clinic! With a comprehensive range of dental services, South Granville Dentistry can help you maintain and protect your oral health. Get in touch with us today to book an appointment.
