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.

Key Benefits:

  • Keep your natural smile and avoid dental implants
  • Essentially painless
  • Short treatment process
  • Maintain normal biting sensation

Your Mouth, Your Decisions!

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.

Give us a Call!

The first step to better oral health is giving us a call to book an appointment. We offer evening and weekend appointments and have 2 locations for your convenience.

Initial Visit

During your first visit we will take some X-Rays and give you a tour of your mouth with our intra oral cameras. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and give you any applicable treatment options.

Next Visit

Once you know what is going on inside of your mouth, you make the treatment decisions that are best for you. We will never be pushy or recommend treatment that you don’t need.

Root Canals

A root canal treatment is the process whereby Dr. Smythe opens the chamber or canal(s) which holds the dead or dying nerve in the tooth. Then he cleans and disinfects the canal(s), which used to contain the nerve, and then fills up the area with a specific combination of materials.

A certain number of x-rays before, during and after treatment are used to diagnose the condition of the tooth and monitor the progress of the treatment.

Root canal treatment may be recommended if the pulp of the tooth, which is the main source of blood supply, becomes diseased or dead (non vital).

This treatment can provide an effective way of saving a tooth that might otherwise require removal.

What causes pulp damage or death of the tooth?

• A cracked tooth
• A deep cavity
• An injury to a tooth, such as a severe knock to the tooth, either recent or in the past.

Once the pulp is infected or dead, if left untreated, pus can build up at the root tip in the jawbone, forming an abscess. An abscess can destroy the bone surrounding the tooth and cause pain.

How long does a root-treated tooth last?

You’re treated and restored tooth/teeth can last a lifetime with proper care. Because tooth decay can still occur in treated teeth, good oral hygiene and regular dental exams are necessary to prevent further problems.

As there is no longer a pulp keeping the tooth alive, root-treated teeth can become brittle and are more prone to fracture. This is an important consideration when deciding whether to crown or fill a tooth after root canal treatment. Porcelain Crowns or Cerec Crowns
