Root canal treatment is advised when a nerve of a tooth becomes infected. Valley Dental Clinic can still save the tooth with the help of the root canal treatment in Strathmore and remove the infected, injured, or dead pulp from your tooth. After care procedure, you can be sensitive up to 10 days. If needed, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to manage any pain or discomfort.

Your dentist would first need to make a small access hole through which debris and infection can easily be removed. Once the infection is removed, the dentist fills up the pulp chamber with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha and the same material is used to seal the small access hole. If required, the dentist may inject antibiotics into the tooth as well.
After cleaning and sealing the tooth, a dental crown will be used to protect it from further damage. The dental crowns are sized to fit perfectly into your smile and they work to protect the weakened tooth without compromising aesthetics.
