Do you have a decaying or infected tooth? If so, it's likely you require root canal therapy. Choose Delta's Nordel Dental Clinic in Delta for effective root canal therapy, also referred to as endodontic treatment. During the treatment, our dentists will keep your teeth in place rather than having them removed.
Why Should You Get Root Canal Therapy
Unfortunately, this treatment has gained a negative reputation over the years. The procedure is not as complex or invasive as popular opinion would have you believe. In fact, root canal therapy at our Delta office is fairly straightforward and offers a range of benefits to our dental patients:
Relieves toothaches and other related discomforts – If you are experiencing teeth infection, endodontic treatment will be effective. Infections can cause toothaches and a foul smell or taste in the mouth, fever, tenderness of the gums, and swelling. By choosing the treatment, the source of these issues will be addressed.
Prevents other teeth from moving out of place – A root canal is often performed in order to save a tooth from extraction. Missing teeth can affect your whole smile because with gaps in your gum line, remaining natural teeth can move out of alignment and cause more dental health issues.
Improves the appearance of the infected tooth – Decaying or infected teeth can become cracked or darken, affecting the look of your smile. Placing a crown to cover the hole made during the procedure can help restore your tooth's look and functionality overall.
Enhances your overall dental health and well-being – Like any infection, an infected tooth can negatively affect your overall health. If left without treatment, bacteria can spread to surrounding teeth and gums, causing more problems. Endodontic treatment is an excellent way to stop the spread of bacteria and maintain a healthy smile.
What to Expect during Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy at Delta's Nordel Dental Clinic is not an overly complex procedure. First, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic to freeze or numb the area. Next, our dentist 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 it is cleaned, our dentist will fill and seal it with either a temporary or a permanent filling. After the procedure is completed, a crown may also be necessary to restore your tooth.
What to Expect after Root Canal Therapy
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 or swelling is not normal. Should you experience either, contact our office immediately. Although not common, if the therapy does not work, then the tooth may require a second procedure or be extracted. At Nordel Dental Clinic in Delta, we will only offer you to extract your teeth if you absolutely need it.
