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 $696 to around $1593 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 fee doesn’t include 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.

Had the best experience at Burlington Family Dental Centre. Very professional and friendly staff. Lisa the hygienist was amazing. Very knowledgeable and thorough with my treatment. I was made to feel comfortable and she clearly explained the process. With regard to Zoya's comments about her experience, it is very hard for me to believe that a clinic of this caliber would do a job that would dissatisfy anyone. It is important for us to be mindful of the mood we're in when writing a review. I have been a patient of Dr. D'Souza's for a long time and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new dentist.

I visited for the first time today I read Google's review Dr. D'Souza gave me a very professional and accurate treatment direction, so I can trust him. And Mark helped me with everything from X-rays when I first met him, but he was so kind and nice that I felt so comfortable. I've never been to a dentist in Burlington before, and I'll be here again. I want to say thank you to all the kind staff

I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. D’Souza, from the initial consultation to the procedure itself, everything was handled with professionalism and care. Dr.D’Souza and the entire team made sure I was comfortable and informed throughout the process. The extraction was virtually painless, and the recovery has been smooth. I highly recommend their office for anyone needing wisdom teeth removal. Thank you for the excellent service!
