Root Canal Burlington

What is root canal therapy?

When the pulp of the tooth is infected by bacteria, it can decay and cause harm to the tooth. Root canal therapy helps remove the bacteria, flush out the dead or dying nerves and restore your tooth’s health.

If left untreated, a cavity can really damage the tooth and reduce it’s functionality and structure.

As a part of restorative dentistry, Burlington Family Dental Centre offers root canal service.

When should you get a root canal done?

If you experience the following symptoms, you might need root canal treatment.

  • Severe toothache. This is pain that doesn’t go away and can impact your ability to sleep
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums.
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and liquids.

If you are unsure, give us a call now for free, friendly advice. Get your root canal treatment done in Burlington at Burlington Family Dental Centre.

What to expect during a root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy is a safe, painless and common procedure done at the dental clinic. It’s common to be nervous before you have one done, and we are aware of that. That’s why we will help you through the entire procedure.

First, we need to exam the tooth and area in question to make sure we know the extent of the problem.

During the treatment, we use an anesthetic to numb the affected area. We will then clean the cavity to remove the germs and the infected part of the tooth pulp. Once the canal has been cleaned, we will fill it up and seal it.

Root Canal Treatment

 After the dental cavity has been sealed, we will assess it for any further signs of infection. If there are none, we put a dental crown on it to make it look like your other natural teeth, support your chewing and biting, prevent future bacteria from getting in there and to reduce the sensitivity as well. Dental crowns after a root canal last many years.

How much does a root canal treatment cost in Burlington?

The cost of a root canal varies from $300 to around $1200 with an average of $900. Since this treatment is considered important, your dental insurance likely covers the majority of the fee. The fee depends on the number of teeth and depth of the damage. Also, the higher end of the fee includes the dental crown. It’s not recommended to delay getting the crown because it leaves the remaining tooth exposed to bacteria and food and also reduces the structural integrity of your bite.

How to care for your teeth after a root canal treatment?

Once the root canal treatment is completed, the after care is very important. You might feel some tenderness and discomfort after the anesthetic has worn off. If your gums are swelling or you have any serious pain, call us immediately.

I can’t thank Dr Lee and his staff for a wonderful experience. His bed side manners and treatments are number one. He takes customers care to another level and it’s a high standard to achieve. I appreciative the service and explanation of each treatment. Also he discusses cost and what’s covered. I live in Mississauga and make the trip to see him in Burlington. I’ve taken my mum and he did everything to make sure that she was taken care of her. My mother ended up getting surgery at the hospital as she had other heath issues that prevented Dr. Lee from preforming the procedure. His honesty and advice was so valuable in making sure mum got the best care. I can’t thank him enough and will continue coming to him! Btw his staff at the front desk are so nice! I wish more places had customer service like theirs!

From reception to follow up, I couldn’t ask for more. Dr Maini has been my dentist for decades, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. The whole staff is consistently friendly, caring, and professional. Safety, up to date equipment, and relaxing surroundings are also a norm. Dr. Surya has joined the practice, and she now provides the same high quality and personal care I have been used to with Dr. Maini. Each dental hygienist I have hadhas also maintained the same combination of personal attention, quality and professionalism .
