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 have it removed. We offer root canal therapy for patients of all ages.
First, our dentists will administer a local anesthetic to freeze/numb the area. Next, our dentists will place a rubber dam around the tooth to prevent bacteria, found in saliva from entering the inside of the tooth. 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 normal. Should you experience either, contact our office immediately. Although not common, if Root Canal Therapy does not work then the tooth may require a second root canal or it must be extracted.
