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.

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.
