Root canal therapy provides dentists with the means of saving a tooth that may otherwise be lost to decay, disease or trauma. Root canal treatment is used to restore a severely damaged tooth that cannot be treated with a simple dental filling.
Our dentists use the latest technology to ensure that your root canal procedure is a painless and comfortable experience.
Root canal symptoms may include gums that are sensitive, inflamed or irritated, tooth pain and sensitivity. We provide sedation dentistry for patients who may have had less than pleasant experiences in the past or who are apprehensive of dental procedures.
If you tooth is severely damaged, your dentist may choose to place a dental crown over the tooth after your root canal treatment to help protect it from further damage.
Root canal complications are rare. If you are a smoker, your dentist will advise you about smoking after your procedure and explain the root canal complications that may be caused as a result.
If you are experiencing root canal pain, call Norton Dental Guelph at (519) 824-2966 to book your appointment with our root canal dentist. We also provide emergency root canal treatment for patients in need of immediate pain relief.
