A root canal is the procedure of repairing or salvaging a badly decayed tooth where its nerve or pulp has become infected or damaged. The procedure itself is as painful as putting in an ordinary filling. The pain associated with the infection of the tooth however can be excruciating. If you are experiencing a significant amount of pain please book an appointment so our dentist can evaluate if there may be a possible infection.
Signs of requiring a root canal include toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, darkening of the tooth and swelling gums.
• Root Canal Procedure may take multiple visits and sessions depending on the size of infection and damage.
• X-rays are taken to evaluate the infection to the surrounding area and shape of root canals.
• The nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed and then cleaned and sealed. Removing the nerve does not affect the function or purpose of the tooth.
• Without treatment, the tooth may further complicate into an abscessed tooth causing severe pain and the infection to spread.
I wish City Dental could serve the whole city; they were excellent. The reception staff were helpful, knowledgeable and funny. Wait times were non-existent, the office was squeaky-clean, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Dr. Gill and his assistant are very accommodating, keep you informed every step of the way, and provide efficient and effective service at great prices. Top-notch clinic.
Everyone in the office is extremely friendly and make you feel at ease. Dr. Gill is extremely knowledgeable and is excellent at calming my fears and addressing any of my concerns. He is patient and takes his time in explaining any issue and making it very easy to understand. I would highly recommend City Dental and Dr. Gill for anyone who is looking for a great dental experience.
Dr. Gill has an excellent chair side manner and is all about options. He has up to date equipment and weighs the pros and cons of each possible approach and outcome. I couldn't have been in better hands. Dr. Gill was thorough, gentle and efficient in performing a root canal and made my tooth pain go away. His pricing is very reasonable and the entire staff is very friendly and attentive.
