Vancouver Dentist Announces Dentist Root Canal Therapy
Smile A Lot Dental Centre recently announced their dentist root canal treatment service for patients in Vancouver. It is a part of the practice’s continuing efforts to provide for all the dentist needs of their patients. Smile A Lot Dental Centre is a well-known practice for restorative and cosmetic dentist services in Vancouver.
“In some practices, they just remove the problem tooth and then have a periodontist put in a dental implant to replace it,” says Oakridge cosmetic dentist Dr. Stanley Radomsky, the dentist who leads the team at Smile A Lot Dental Centre. “But the best teeth are still natural teeth, and with our root canal therapy the dental surgeon can save the tooth instead.”
A root canal treatment is similar to having a cavity filled, but it is much more complicated. The inner nerves and blood vessels of the tooth called the pulp can be infected from inside the tooth, and this causes swelling and toothache for the patient. There is also the risk that the bacteria from the infection can get into the bloodstream and cause infection in other parts of the body.
According to Dr. Radomsky, the treatment doesn’t have to be painful at all. “The dentist applies local anesthesia, then isolates the area with a rubber dam,” explains South Vancouver dentist Dr. Radomsky. “Then an opening is drilled into the tooth so the dentist can get to the infected pulp, which is then removed. After that, the area is cleaned with special tools and the root space is filled in with filling material.”
All these steps are performed in the first visit to the dentist at Vancouver dental practice, Smile A Lot Dental Centre. The second and final visit for the root canal therapy has the patient getting fitted for a crown on the tooth.
“A crown needs to be placed on the surface of the tooth to seal it,” says Dr. Radomsky. “The crown prevents any further infection, and it also restores the appearance and function of the tooth.”
The root canal treatment eliminates the pain caused by the pulp infection, and it also prevents any further complications. The crown also has cosmetic benefits.
“At Smile A Lot Dental Centre, we take a lot of effort in creating perfectly natural-looking crowns so that our patients can smile more easily,” says Dr. Radomsky. “They have the right colour and shape, and the natural tooth is preserved so that there’s no need for dental implants for the moment.” For further information, contact Smile A Lot Dental Centre.
