Welcome to Kettle Valley Family Dental, where we are committed to providing high-quality dental care to our patients. If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, you may need a root canal. Our dental team can help you understand the procedure and provide the care you need to restore your oral health.
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure that is used to treat a tooth that is infected or damaged. The procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from inside the tooth and filling the space with a special material. This helps to prevent further damage and decay and allows the tooth to be saved.
Symptoms of a damaged or infected tooth can include pain, sensitivity, swelling, and discolouration. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
What to expect during a root canal
At Kettle Valley Family Dental, we understand that many patients may feel anxious or nervous about undergoing a root canal. That’s why we take the time to explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have before we begin.
During the procedure, our dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. They will then make a small opening in the top of the tooth to access the pulp. The infected or damaged pulp is then removed, and the space is cleaned and filled with a special material to prevent further decay.
After the root canal, you may experience some minor discomfort or sensitivity, but this will typically subside within a few days. Our dental team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that you heal quickly and comfortably.
