Port Credit Smiles has over forty years of dental experience in offering a wide range of dental procedures for patients of all ages.

When a tooth experiences a trauma or a cavity is left untreated for too long, the nerve and blood supply can become infected. When this happens, a root canal procedure is needed to prevent loss of the tooth. Although they seem to have a scary history, root canals are not performed faster and more efficiently, are painless under local anaesthetic and have higher success rates due to improved technology and techniques.

There are several steps our dental professionals use in performing a root canal procedure at Port Credit Smiles. We begin with the local anaesthetic to freeze the area in which the procedure is being performed. The dentist will also make sure that saliva does not enter the area in which the tooth is being treated.

With the help of dental tools, an opening in the tooth is made and the dead pulp and tissue is removed. Once the root canal has been thoroughly cleaned, the canal is sealed with a permanent filling.
