Root Canals in Saint John

If you feel any pain or discomfort in your teeth, you may have a tooth infection. A tooth infection occurs when bacteria in the mouth penetrate the hard surface of the tooth and infiltrate the dental pulp. A root canal is a routine dental procedure to treat an infected tooth and bring it back to health.

Symptoms of a Dental Infection

There are several signs that may indicate you are suffering from a dental infection or tooth abscess, including pain, swelling, discoloration of the gums and increased tooth sensitivity. If you suspect you may have a tooth infection, it’s best to get it checked by your dentist as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading.

What Is the Root Canal Procedure?

Your dentist will begin the procedure by administering a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the process. Next, they will drill a small hole into the tooth and remove the infected pulp. Once the roots are cleaned, they will clean the area and fill the hole with a dental filling or crown.
