Root Canal Treatment Kitsilano
Severe decay, cracks and chips, or trauma to a tooth can lead to infection of the pulp of the tooth. When the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, or dies altogether, it can cause pain, swelling and sensitivity to heat and cold. It is important to have the infection dealt with before it can cause tooth loss, or spread to neighboring teeth. The solution is a root canal procedure.
What is a root canal?
Root canal treatment is a very common endodontic dental procedure, during which the infected root pulp is cleaned out and the root is filled and sealed. This non-surgical treatment can save a natural tooth, which might otherwise deteriorate to the point of requiring removal, and prevent the need for a dental implant or bridge to replace the tooth.
