Root Canal Treatment at Valley Smiles Dental Clinic in Chilliwack

Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth or if the decay has reached the nerve of the teeth.

 

During root canal treatment, your Chilliwack dentist at Valley Smiles Dental Clinic who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp (live tissue of tooth) inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space. You may need a Crown (Cap or Full Coverage Restoration) to prevent breakage in case of large Restoration.
 

Taking proper care of your teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment. The best way to prevent the need for root canal treatment is to follow a good oral hygiene routine by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and to visit your dentist regularly.
