What is a Root Canal?

A Root Canal is performed to save a tooth from extraction when it becomes diseased or is dying. Every tooth has a nerve chamber (also known as a root chamber). When this nerve chamber is irritated with a bacterial infection from a deep cavity, broken tooth, or trauma to the tooth, it can cause a range of issues. If left untreated, the bacteria can reach the innermost part of the tooth and can cause severe pain. Since teeth are unable to heal themselves, root canal therapy can be a critical dental treatment to save your teeth.

How can I tell if my toothache requires a root canal?

Common symptoms of a tooth in need of a root canal include:

  • Severe toothache or pain when chewing
  • Lingering pain after drinking hot or cold beverages, that can last for minutes
  • Constant dull, throbbing pain
  • Tenderness when biting
  • Tenderness and swelling around the gums
  • An abscess (pimple-like swelling) at the gums, possibly with the presence of pus
  • Difficulty sleeping as a result of pain, and/or pain that wakes you up from sleep
  • Tooth discolouration or darkening of the enamel

If you experience any of these symptoms, call Montgomery Dental Centre immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.

Will a Root Canal Hurt?

With advanced technology and the general evolution of dental practices, modern root canals are far less uncomfortable than root canals of the past. Montgomery Dental Centre is proud to use refined techniques and the latest in dental technology. Root Canals can often be treated in a single visit, with very minimal discomfort to the patient. We use a custom pharmacy-made topical ointment to reduce the injection pain from the freezing. Our philosophy is to never work through any pain; if you experience any pain during your procedure, we will stop the procedure and provide the appropriate anesthesia before we carry on so that you have a comfortable and successful visit from start to finish.
