Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. A successful root canal treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants and/or tooth extraction!
What does a Root Canal involve?
During root canal or endodontic treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called "gutta-percha". Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a filling and a crown for ultimate breakage-prevention!

How long does it take?
A typical Root Canal appointment time can vary anywhere between 60-120 minutes and treatment may be done in 1 or 2 appointments, depending on the patient's tooth condition and dental history.
It is always recommended to book an examination appointment with the dentist prior to treatment!
*Note: After a root canal treatment, your tooth may be tender for the first week or two.
