Taking proper care of your teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment. The best way to prevent the need for root canal treatment is to follow good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and to visit your dentist regularly.
Root canal treatment remains for many patients, the only viable option to retain a tooth that has suffered severe trauma as a result of injury or repeated dental treatment, has a deep cavity or is cracked, has become infected, or has experienced long-term sensitivity. You can rely on us for root canal treatment in Winnipeg.
Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
Prolonged sensitivity (pain) to hot or cold temperatures (after the heat or cold has been removed)
Discolouration (darkening) of the tooth
Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums
Spontaneous tooth pain (i.e. waking you up at night)
Treatment consists of removing the nerve/diseased pulp, cleaning out the canals, and placing a permanent rubber material in the canal. After the canals are filled, a regular filling will be placed in the tooth.
After a tooth has had a root canal, it can become dry, brittle, and easy to break. Thus full coverage by placing a crown is recommended within six months to one year. This increases the long-term retention of your treated tooth.
