Root Canals in Surrey, BC


At Smiles @ Fleetwood, we understand the idea of a root canal treatment can be intimidating; however, we want to assure you that it doesn't have to be! A root canal, or an endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure for when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or damaged. During the process, our experienced team will remove the damaged tooth pulp, clean the cavity, and seal the tooth with filling material to prevent further damage. This may sound daunting, but it's a standard and effective procedure to save the tooth and relieve pain.

Why choose our dental services for your root canal therapy? Our doctor uses advanced technology and techniques to ensure a comfortable and efficient experience. We prioritize patient comfort and satisfaction, and our commitment to personalized care means that we'll work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your unique needs. Trust Smiles @ Fleetwood with your dental health to regain confidence in your smile.

Root Canal Treatment in Surrey

A root canal treatment removes dead pulp and bacteria from the root canal system to save an infected tooth and prevent future infections. If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms, you might need a root canal...

  • Severe pain when chewing
  • Tooth decay
  • Cracked teeth
  • Swollen or "pimpled" gums
  • Tooth discolouration
  • Sensitivity

It's normal to feel anxious about any dental procedure. However, being informed of the process can significantly reduce dental anxiety and help you feel more comfortable before your appointment. At Smiles @ Fleetwood, we're proud to offer oral sedation to virtually ensure painless root canal treatment. To help you prepare for your root canal Surrey appointment, here's what you can expect.

  1. During a root canal, our experienced team will first administer a local anesthetic to numb the area and ensure your comfort. We will give you an oral sedative should you prefer.
  2. Then, we'll create a small opening in the abscessed tooth to access the infected or damaged pulp.
  3. Using specialized tools, we'll carefully remove the damaged pulp, clean the root canal, and shape it to prepare the pulp chamber for sealing.
  4. Finally, we'll fill the root canal with a rubber-like material and seal it to prevent further damage or infection.
  5. In most cases, we'll place a crown or filling on the tooth to restore its function and appearance.

Root canal therapy can typically be completed in 1 to 3 appointments depending on the severity of the infection, the number of canals needing treatment, and the difficulty level. At Smiles @ Fleetwood, we prioritize patient comfort and satisfaction. Our skilled team will work with you every step of the way to ensure a successful and stress-free root canal experience.


Oral dental surgery process by Smiles at Fleetwood in Surrey

Root Canal Therapy

The “Pulp” is contained in a sealed chamber usually in the center of the tooth that comprises the blood vessels and the nerves. The pulp provides the tooth with its means of nutrition and sensation.  If the pulp becomes exposed, irritated, injured or diseased, most often the nerve and blood vessels will become infected and die.  Death of the pulp means death of the tooth. Root canal treatment is necessary  to keep the tooth.

Pulpal irritation may be caused by:

Trauma

  • Touching exposed cementum  (root covering) with a toothbrush or finger nail
  • Physical blow,  tooth fracture (exposing the pulp), chipped or broken teeth
  • Traumatic occlusion, bruxism, a high filling, biting a hard object.
  • Severe sensitivity to hot and cold foods
  • Galvanic shock  (presence of different metals in the mouth)

Disease

  • Tooth decay entering the pulp
  • Abscess (inflamed or infected pulp)
  • Recent treatment  – repeated dental procedures on a tooth
