Frequently Asked Questions

Thanks to modern technology, and our highly trained team of dentists and dental hygienists, root canal treatments now involve minimal to no pain at all.

By the time you realize you need a root canal, your tooth pulp and nerve have already begun to decay. This infected tissue will never fully heal and would only become infected again. Removing the pulp is the only safe option.

Some of the signs and symptoms that you may need a root canal are; severe toothaches while applying pressure or chewing, continued sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, discolouration of the tooth, and swelling and tenderness of the gums. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms it is important to contact us so that we can examine your situation and decide if you are a candidate for a root canal procedure.

You must contact your insurance provider to find out what they cover. After a consultation, we can provide you with an estimate to send to your provider. We strongly encourage you to make a root canal a high priority. Please speak to us if you feel any hesitation.

Damage can occur due to deep decay, trauma, a loose filling or crown or a crack or chip in the tooth. A root canal salvages your tooth and prevents the spread of infection.

We reserve the appointment slot exclusively for you. We do not double book. Therefore, we would ask that you give us 48-hours notice to cancel an appointment so we have time to offer the slot to someone else who may be waiting.
