One-visit root canals.
Our one-visit root canals are a procedure intended to treat the inside of your tooth in order to preserve the structure of your tooth. If a cavity is left untreated, decay can extend into the central, living layers of the tooth. This leaves your tooth vulnerable to bacteria, which can then infect the pulp area, leading to infection, tooth pain or an abscess. If left untreated, the infection can continue to worsen, leading to the potential loss of your tooth.
If you are experiencing a toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, tenderness to pressure when chewing, increased sensitivity when you lie down or even swelling, these may be signs that decay has progressed to the point where a root canal is required to save the tooth.
We understand that many people have anxiety about having a root canal. Rest assured, we make it a priority to create a comforting, caring and anxiety-free experience to ensure that you’re at ease throughout the entire procedure. Root canals are a common procedure that our Nanaimo dentists are experienced and knowledgeable in. We will ensure that you have adequate dental anesthetics to ensure you don’t feel anything during your procedure, making it feel no different from a routine filling.
After the root canal proctor is complete, a filling can be placed, if needed, however, a tooth crown is the more recommended restoration solution for any root canal treated tooth for its ability to prevent fracturing.
If you think you may have an infected tooth, book an appointment at our Nanaimo dental clinic as soon as possible and get the pain relief you deserve.
