Our team of dentists can perform root canal surgery (which is sometimes referred to as endodontics) when the procedure is needed. Usually, a root canal for Delta patients is performed when soft nerve tissue inside a tooth, known as pulp, becomes infected due to some sort of crack or decay. Over time, that infection can lead to nerve damage, and the tooth may need to be removed. Luckily, a root canal is meant to prevent this final outcome by removing the damaged tissue, cleaning the inside of the tooth and filling it with dental composite. Lifestyle Dental Care will work to keep your teeth and your smile intact in as little as one session.
If you experience prolonged pain while chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling in the gums or dark discolouration of a tooth, this might be a sign that you need a root canal in Delta. If so, call Lifestyle Dental Care today to schedule an appointment.
