Root Canal Treatment

When they do, you need high-quality solutions at a price that suits your budget. At Port Kennedy Central Dental Care, we strive to provide affordable care that doesn’t involve pain.

If you have an infection in your tooth, we want to try to save it from being extracted. It’s always preferable to preserve your existing teeth whenever possible. A root canal treatment can do just that, restoring the health of your tooth and the beauty of your smile.

What Is a Root Canal Treatment?

Many people don’t understand what is involved in root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy. It’s a procedure that cleans the infection out of your tooth so that it can function again. We place a dental crown over the compromised tooth as the last step of the procedure. With a crown covering the tooth, you won’t need to worry about the strength of your tooth after it has lost some of its structure.

What to Expect During a Root Canal Treatment

We also offer oral sedation medication, as your wellbeing is paramount to us. We’ll remove the infection from your tooth, then seal it off to prevent bacteria from re-entering it. Since the tooth doesn’t have the same stability it used to, we’ll place a dental crown to restore your oral health.

The Signs You May Need a Root Canal

There are certain symptoms that may indicate a root canal treatment is the most appropriate solution for you. These include:

  • A toothache when you chew
  • Long-lasting sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Tender, swollen gums
  • A pimple on your gums
  • A darkened tooth
  • Drainage around the gumlines
  • Swelling in the neck or face

You may think that severe pain has to be involved if you have an infection in your tooth. Surprisingly, you may feel no pain at all. A lack of discomfort doesn’t mean that your oral health is in good shape, which is why it’s so vital to attend your regular dental health assessments with us.
