Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy salvages the natural tooth rather than replacing it with a dental implant so that you reduce pain and restore your oral health.
Root Canal Therapy Kelowna
Hold on to that natural tooth for longer!
Teeth decay, break, and crack. When this happens, a root canal might be the best course of action. Root canal therapy salvages the natural tooth rather than replacing it with a dental implant. The tooth will appear the same way it did before the procedure and may last forever without another treatment.
- Keep your natural smile and avoid dental implants
- Short treatment process
- Maintain normal biting sensation
A root canal involves gently removing the nerve tissue of a tooth and sealing the canals with a special rubberlike material. After root canal therapy the tooth will not be able to feel temperature or pain but will maintain normal biting power and sensation.
Why Choose Us?
Root canal therapy is a common dental procedure that replaces the infected or damaged pulp of a tooth. When your tooth pulp is diseased, it may cause inflammation or infection. Root canal therapy can save a tooth that would otherwise be extracted and require replacement.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms it may indicate the need for root canal therapy here at One Dental. You may have a damaged or diseased tooth pulp if you have:
- Sporadic or sporadic tooth pain.
- Sensitivity to temperature (hot and cold).
- Tooth pain when you bite or chew.
- Swelling of your gum near your affected tooth.
- Oozing of pus near your affected tooth.
- Facial swelling
In some cases, the pulp of your tooth may become damaged or diseased without exhibiting any symptoms. Your dentist can diagnose the problem during a regular dental checkup with special tests or X-rays.
Does it hurt?
In the past root canals have been quite painful but with new advances in dental technology, it is no more uncomfortable than a regular filling.
Will I need any other work other than my root canal?
You may require a dental crown so that the tooth does not fracture following the treatment. A tooth that has undergone the therapy may become more brittle and overtime may be susceptible to cracking.
Will my insurance cover the cost of my root canal?
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
Our job is to show you what we see in your mouth, educate you on your options, and let you make the best decision for yourself. We never push unnecessary treatments and always give you options.
