What is a Root Canal?

Complete Family Dentistry offers clients affordable dental care by treating severely decayed and infected teeth with a root canal. We are one of the few offices offering high quality root canals in Atlantic Canada by utilizing the latest in root canal laser technology. This technology allows for the tooth canals to be cleaned more thoroughly than traditional root canal treatments.

Root Canals with a Laser

When tooth decay is left untreated it can affect the pulp of the tooth and cause an infection. If inflammation is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

During a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned, disinfected, and then filled and sealed with a tooth colored filling. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

Often, dentists have a hard time effectively cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth canals. If a root canal is not fully completed, remaining bacteria and infection can lead to further inflammation and increased risk of developing an abscess.

At Complete Family dentistry, we believe that our clients deserve the safest, most effective dental treatment available. During all of our root canals, we utilize Laser Root Canal Therapy, meaning we use a top-of-the-line laser to clean out your tooth canals more effectively. New laser technology allows you to have a higher quality root canal that takes less time and pain than a conventional root canal.
