Root Canal Therapy

Saving your teeth is a better choice than extracting them!

Most people have pre-conceived notions that root canal treatments are filled with pain and discomfort. In fact, root canal therapy doesn’t cause pain. It actually relieves it! Advances in dental technology have made root canal therapy virtually a pain-free experience.
When the inside, or pulp of a tooth becomes infected, you feel pain. Removing the pulp (blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue) inside your tooth will only affect your perception of hot and cold; the tooth can survive without the pulp.

Common symptoms of a root canal infection:

  • Sharp, acute and intense pain
  • Sharp pain when biting down
  • Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods
  • Dull ache and pressure
  • Tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call 613-830-2222 to schedule an appointment with Drs. Mosco and Rief.
