PROFESSIONAL ROOT CANAL TREATMENT SERVICE IN HAMILTON
At Izzi Dental Care, we perform root canal treatments for our Hamilton, ON patients. During a root canal, we eliminate bacteria from an infected root canal. The procedure prevents further infections and saves the natural tooth. During the treatment, we remove the infected pulp and carefully clean the inside of the tooth before filling and sealing it. There is no reason to worry about a root canal treatment, despite its reputation. We apply local anesthesia, making the procedure no more painful than any other treatment. Our team performs this procedure daily, and we understand how to do it while causing minimal pain and discomfort. Most importantly, we will address the underlying issue and protect your oral health.
How Can I Tell if I Need a Root Canal?
How can patients tell when they need a root canal? Fortunately, there is a multitude of warning signs. If you notice any of the following symptoms, get in touch with Izzi Dental Care immediately. The longer you wait to address the infection, the greater the risk to your teeth. The signs and symptoms may include: Severe sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, pain while chewing, presence of a big deep cavity, swollen-inflamed gum or pus discharge from Pimple on the gum.
What to Expect Following Your Root Canal?
A root canal treatment will relieve the symptoms of the infection – especially pain. In the immediate aftermath, you might experience some degree of soreness and discomfort. Over-the-counter medications, such as Advil and Tylenol, will address this discomfort. In many cases, we will need to place a crown or filling in space where we drilled to remove the pulp, so until we do so, it is wise to avoid chewing hard foods. At Izzi Dental Care, we will send you home with a full list of instructions, ensuring your root canal treatment is as successful as it should be.
