Here at Linden Dental, we will always strive to save a tooth that has become infected, with extraction only being considered as a last resort. This can be achieved through performing a root canal treatment.
In some cases an infected tooth won’t present any symptoms, highlighting the importance of regular dental health examinations. During your routine hygienist and dentist appointments, we will look for potential problems that could lead to infection and help you to adjust your at-home routine and lifestyle habits, to lower your chances of needing a root canal treatment in the future.
Once we’ve established a root canal treatment as the recommended course of action, the canal chambers are shaped, cleaned and disinfected using fine instruments. The canals are then sealed to stop any further infection from entering the tooth. You will experience little or no discomfort during treatment.
Root treatments can take a number of visits depending on the complexity of the root and how well the infection settles.
Protect your smile: the sooner an infection is treated, the less likely it is to cause further problems. Our team has ample experience in performing this complex procedure with diligence and skill, putting you on the path to a healthier smile.
Be pain-free: chronic tenderness and pain are often associated with an infected tooth. Root canal treatment will eliminate this and allow you to live pain-free thereafter.
Supportive team: if you’re a nervous patient and you require root canal treatment, please don’t hesitate to voice your concerns to our compassionate team. We will do everything we can to help you feel at ease.
Restore tooth function: an infected tooth can make chewing a challenge. Enjoy a more wide-ranging array of foods post-treatment.
