Many people assume getting a root canal is painful and stressful. Not so!
In fact, our patients are always surprised by how comfortable and easy it is. This treatment is the best way to stop painful decay and infection and save your tooth from extraction.
The dentists at our Châteauguay clinic offer expert diagnosis and high-tech, comfortable root canal treatment for tooth infections.
As tooth decay advances, it will eventually reach the nerves in the root of your tooth, called the pulp. When this happens, you’ll start to feel some sensitivity in the tooth, if not an outright toothache. Left untreated, this can turn into an abscess or damage the tooth to the point of extraction.
A root canal removes the cavity and infected pulp (and the pain). A tooth can happily survive without the pulp, making a root canal a great way to keep your tooth and restore function to your smile.
