Root Canal Therapy

Enjoy your natural teeth for longer!

About

Through daily use teeth atrophy, meaning they decay, break, and crack. When this happens, the best course of action may be a root canal. Root canal therapy salvages the remaining healthy structure of the natural tooth instead of extracting it and completely replacing it with a dental implant. The tooth will appear and function the same way it did before treatment. It may even last the rest of your life without further treatment.

Key Benefits:  

  • Essentially painless process
  • Short treatment process
  • Avoid dental implants by keeping your natural tooth
  • Maintain normal biting sensation and mouth structure

Additional Information: Root canal therapy gently removes the nerve tissue of a tooth and seals the exposed canals with a rubber like material. Following root canal therapy, the tooth will maintain normal biting power and sensation but will not be able to feel temperature or pain with the absence of the nerve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Root Canal Therapy hurt?

Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy hurts no more than getting a regular filling.

Will I need additional work following my root canal?

A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy may become brittle over time and may be vulnerable to cracking. A dental crown may be suggested in order to protect the tooth.

Will my insurance cover the cost of my root canal?

The majority of insurance companies cover most of our services. For a more detailed estimate of your coverage, please contact your service provider. Feel free to call us anytime at (604)-597-6711 for more information regarding insurance coverage.

  • All front desk staff are always welcoming and greet me by name. The hygienist, Karen, was thorough, gave good hygiene advice, and discovered I had unused 'units' therefore I could come in more frequently which would benefit gum health. Thanks for the great care!
