Root Canals in New Westminster

When cavities develop in the tooth, bacteria can pass to the inside of the tooth and cause an infection in the dental pulp. If you experience an infection, your dentist will perform a root canal to treat the infected tooth and bring it back to health.

What Are the Symptoms of a Tooth Infection?

Your dental pulp is the soft area of the tooth that is made up of nerves and blood vessels. When this delicate area becomes affected, you may experience one or more symptoms, including:

● Constant pain
● Pain or discomfort while biting and chewing
● Swelling of the gums
● Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold foods
● Darkening of the gums

The Root Canal Procedure

A root canal is a common dental procedure administered under a local anesthetic. It involves drilling a small hole into the tooth and then clearing out the infected dental pulp. The canal will be cleaned, and a filling will be placed to seal the hole for protection.
