Root Canal Treatment
The dentists at Okanagan Smiles Dentistry provide endodontic treatments in our office. Sometimes due to injury/trauma or large cavities the nerves inside the tooth become infected and die. When a tooth reaches this stage there are two options: remove the tooth or save it with root canal treatment. A root canal procedure involves cleaning, shaping, and filling the canals to help prevent re-infection. After a root canal the tooth looses it's strength and can break easily. Crowns are recommended to protect a tooth with a root canal from breaking.
