Root Canals in Coquitlam

Root canals are a common dental procedure used to help preserve teeth and tackle tough decay for infected teeth. While more invasive than your typical tooth filling, root canals can prevent more pain and more complex procedures in the future, such as tooth extraction. They will also help relieve mouth pain, temperature sensitivity and gum pain.

What Happens in a Root Canal?

Once your dentist has determined your need for a root canal, they will help you set up a separate appointment with Coquitlam City Dentist. During your root canal, you will first receive local anesthesia to numb the area. Your dentist will then drill into your tooth to reach the infected area. The infected tissue will all be removed from the root before it is flushed and sealed.

How Do I Know if I Need a Root Canal?

Your Coquitlam City Dentist will help you identify the need for a root canal, but you will likely notice some signs beforehand. These symptoms may include pain in your gums, your nerves or while biting and chewing. You might also be more sensitive to temperature. Upon noticing these issues, we recommend contacting Coquitlam City Dentist for diagnosis.
