Root Canal Treatment In Montreal, QC

At the center of the tooth lies the pulp, a collection of specialized blood vessels that helps build and grow the tooth. This pulp can sometimes get infected from various causes like trauma, decay, cracks or repeated dental procedures and cause swelling, temperature sensitivity or pain in the area of the tooth and gums.

If you experience any of these symptoms, your Montreal dentist at Monk Dental center will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to remove the diseased pulp and thoroughly clean and seal the root canal system. This procedure usually involves local anesthesia and can be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required and your overall dental health.

How do I know if I need Montreal root canal treatment?

After carefully reviewing your digital X-rays, a member of our dental team will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure. We will then sit down with you to explain our findings, share our recommendations and take the time to answer all your questions.

Steps to a successful root canal treatment in Montreal:

  • A local anesthetic is used
  • The tooth is isolated to keep it clean during your procedure
  • An opening is made in the upper part of the tooth
  • The pulp and nerve are removed
  • The root canal is cleaned, medicated and filled with a biocompatible material
  • A temporary filling is put in place
  • Your general dentist (or a member of our team) will then place a permanent restoration to protect your tooth permanently
    You can drive home after your treatment and resume your usual activities
