Root Canal Treatment in Hamilton and Stoney Creek
Root Canal is a Safe, Effective, Long-Lasting Treatment to Save Your Natural Teeth
Root Canal Therapy (or treatment) is used to repair and save an infected or a badly damaged tooth. How bad is “badly” damaged you might ask? It is a tooth that is chipped, is cracked, has a deep cavity, damaged pulp, is inflamed, is seriously infected, has abscess, had repeated dental procedures, or has leaky or had large filling(s). Swollen neck, face or gums, temperature sensitivity, sharp pain when biting or chewing, and/or toothache may also be present.
Root Canal Treatment (RCT) eliminates the need for tooth removal, prevents infection from spreading, reduces the risk of jaw bone damage and provides the much-needed pain relief.
Root Canal Treatment is safe and effective. Millions of RCTs are performed world-wide every year. It’s a highly successful procedure with a success rate of whopping more than 95%. More than 98% RCT procedures last more than 1 year, more than 92% last more than 5 years and more than 86% last more than 10 years and many last a life time!
Root Canal Therapy’s success rate depends upon many factors such as your age, timing of treatment (sooner the better), quality of restoration (quantity and type of materials used) and location of the tooth (front teeth used for biting and cutting versus back teeth for chewing, stress or forces experienced by it, number of canals etc.) receiving the treatment. Your overall health, eating habits and dental hygiene practices also determine the longevity of your RCT.
RCT is virtually painless like a cavity filling. Thanks to advances in technology and anesthesia, Root Canal Therapy related pain has lessened a lot over the years. It is much less painful than a tooth extraction. You can go right back to work, school or other activities after an RCT. Full recovery generally takes less than a week.
After the Root Canal Treatment, your tooth should work and visually look like a natural tooth.
Root Canal Treatment is quite affordable. Because an RCT is a medical procedure (not a cosmetic procedure), it is fully or partially covered by most insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider for more information or we can gladly do it for you. RCT is much cheaper than other alternatives such as a bridge, a denture or an implant and takes less time.
