A Lifeline for Infected Teeth

Through damage or decay, harmful bacteria can infect the tissue inside of a tooth.

With root canal therapy, we rescue the tooth by removing the bacteria and decay, replacing it with a safe, medicated dental filling, and sealing the tooth to prevent infection from happening again.

  • Purified water to lower chance of reinfection
  • Single-appointment root canal treatment
  • Available sedation for stress-free care

Have questions about getting a root canal in Burnaby?

No, root canal treatment isn’t painful. In fact, since it addresses the source of your discomfort, actually you’ll feel much less pain as soon as you’ve finished the treatment.

If more than half of the tooth was removed, or if the tooth was cracked, you’ll need a crown to maintain the tooth’s strength and prevent it from being damaged even further.

Yes, if you only receive local anesthetic, then you can go directly to school/work after your root canal treatment. You won’t feel much pain (if any), but the numbness may last for 2-4 hours.

Removing the tooth will stop the pain and infection, but it’ll create new problems for the health and appearance of your smile. Fixing those problems will take much more time, money, and effort than a root canal treatment.

Yes, root canal treatment is safe. While there’s been controversy around the treatment, there has been no evidence supporting claims that root canal treatment leads to cancer.

Like any medical procedure, there’s a chance that a root canal treatment won’t be successful. However, root canal treatment has a 90-95% success rate in general, so the chance that an infection will return is very low.

Relief is on the way.
