At Park Place Dental, we always aim for a comfortable root canal experience for our patients. Our Barrie dentists offer the latest in anesthesia and use rotary endodontics, which is designed to provide a more comfortable—and often faster—root canal therapy.
If you have a deep root and pulp infection in your tooth, a root canal saves that tooth and eliminates the need for an extraction.
Signs that you may need root canal therapy in Barrie include:
- Painful tooth
- Sensitive tooth
- Bump on the gum
Root Canal Treatment
Your Barrie, ON dentist numbs the area and waits until you give the sign that you can’t feel a thing. Then the infected root and pulp are cleared away using state-of-the-art rotary endodontics. This tooth is then treated with an antibacterial agent and temporarily closed to promote healing.
At your next visit, your Barrie, ON dentist may recommend a crown to permanently restore your tooth if the infection weakened the tooth’s structure.
Good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings and exams may lower your risk for root and pulp infections.
