Root Canal Therapy
Do you have an infected tooth or gums? You should consider root canal therapy in Delta, BC, offered by Nordel Dental Clinic. Also referred to as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy allows you to keep your tooth, rather than being forced to extract it. We offer root canal therapy for patients of all ages.
First, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic to freeze/numb the area. Next, our dentist will put a rubber dam around the tooth being worked on to help protect it from bacteria found in your saliva during the treatment. Our dentist will then remove the tooth’s damaged pulp by cleaning and enlarging its root canal system. Once your root canal has been cleaned, it will be time to fill and seal it with either a temporary or a permanent filling. Once the root canal has been performed, a crown may also be necessary to restore your tooth.
Root canal therapy can be performed in as little as one to two dental visits. Tenderness may be expected for a week or two after treatment. However, severe pain and/or swelling are not. Should you experience either, contact our office immediately. Sometimes, although not commonly, root canal therapy does not work and your tooth must be extracted or a second root canal treatment may be required.
