If you’ve experienced damage to the nerve tissue of your tooth, the East End Dental team can alleviate your pain and discomfort with root canal treatment. Despite this procedure’s unfair reputation, it’s a routine, painless way to restore your tooth. Treatment on your root canal in St. John’s may be done in one or two appointments. After removing the infected and inflamed soft tissue within your tooth, the tooth is sealed and filled. After the root canal is successfully completed, restoring the tooth with a crown is usually highly recommended to preserve the tooth structure and provide strength for chewing.
You can still get a cavity or gum disease after a root canal treatment. Root canal treatment does not protect your tooth from other types of damage. With proper care and regular dental visits, the tooth could last as long as your other teeth. Call us today so we can discuss your options and begin treatment!
