Root Canals in Burnaby
When a nerve is infected by decay, trauma, or gum disease, root canal treatment is necessary. If the problem goes untreated for too long, it will often lead to the tooth needing complete removal. This removal can be costly and will have negative effects on the teeth surrounding the gap. Our team is experienced in performing root canals and will ensure that you are made comfortable during the experience.
Symptoms of an Infected Nerve
There are several signs that point to an infected nerve. If you notice abscesses on the gums or unusual pain or swelling, it may mean that root canal therapy is necessary. However, an infected nerve does not always have outward symptoms, so you may not even be aware that you need a root canal.
How Does a Root Canal Work?
During your root canal procedure, the area around the tooth is numbed, and the infected nerve and pulp are removed. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. You will then receive a dental cap to protect and restore the affected tooth. During the process, we will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible while still providing top-quality care.
