A root canal is one of the most common endodontic treatments in Canada. Even though the treatment is well-known, many individuals are still unaware of the same. PoCo Dental Group offers root canal treatment in Maple Ridge at cost-effective prices. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment or for expert advice.
If you neglect your oral hygiene, the outermost section of your tooth (enamel) decays and eventually forms a cavity. Over time, the decay wears deeper into the tooth and eventually the pulp and blood vessels. Once it reaches the pulp, there is no other choice but to get a root canal treatment. Like the saying “better safe than sorry,” the sooner you get treated, it lessens the chances of becoming potentially severe.
It is an endodontic procedure performed when the dental pulp has been affected by trauma, inflammation, or decay. To create space for medicated materials to be filled in the cavity, the pulp, bacteria, nerves, and any decay left will be removed to restore your teeth to their full functionality.

Typically an experienced dentist may carry out the root canal treatment or refer you to an endodontist. Endodontics is a specialization in dentistry focused on treating the dental pulp or nerve of the tooth. If you want to get a root canal treatment in Maple Ridge, visit PoCo Dental Group today.
Below-mentioned is the possible symptoms that you should not ignore. It can be a combination of either one of these symptoms.

Swelling or tenderness on the gums
Decay has reached the tooth pulp

It depends on the patient’s situation. A dentist can diagnose the issue in one appointment or after a few visits. On occasion, a crown or a filling may be paired with a root canal. Sometimes, you have to wait for a short period to apply topical medication prescribed by the dentists to protect your mouth and tooth from harmful bacteria. Even after the filling, under certain circumstances, the tooth can still show weakness. If it is still weak, it must be reinforced in the form of a metal or fiber-reinforced resin post. The tooth is protected with a crown after the area is sealed. The material of the crown can range from gold to ceramic or alloy based on your personal preference and situation.
Root canals can be physically and mentally taxing. At PoCo Dental Group, we can provide you with top-class after-care treatment to reduce the pain with over-the-counter pain medications and other oral hygiene methods. There are rarely any complications after a root canal treatment; however, new infections can occur due to various reasons. Breakdown of the inner sealing material and undetected crack etc., are some of the post-treatment infections that may occur. It would be best to make frequent visits to your dentist after your root canal treatment to avoid future dental problems.
