If you have an infected or otherwise distressed tooth, we can determine if a root canal at our Barrie office is the best solution.
One of the most dreaded dental services is the root canal. Here at Northern Horizon Dental, we aren’t sure why the effective and beneficial root canal has gotten such a bad rap, but we’re here to show you that they can be the ideal procedure for preserving a healthy smile. In fact, it sometimes is the only way to save a tooth that has become infected or badly decayed. When the soft tissue is infected or inflamed, a root canal is recommended. Because bacteria are often involved, it is imperative to seek treatment for a problem tooth.
A root canal is a common practice with more than 15 million performed each year. That equates to more than 40,000 per day. It is far from being a new and unproven procedure when most every dental office completes dozens each month. You can rest assured that if we recommend a root canal, it is the best course of treatment for your situation.
One of the things that makes most people apprehensive about getting a root canal is not knowing what to expect. We take away that feeling by fully explaining the steps of the process to you, including the steps we take to ensure a successful result and a discussion about follow-up care. We will also discuss sedation dentistry and how that makes the root canal process more comfortable.
If you are experiencing a problem with a tooth, give us a call to schedule an appointment. We will assess the situation and let you know if a root canal is your best option and let you know step-by-step what to expect.
