Root Canal treatment (RCT) in Kitchener

Marilyn Monroe once said “Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” Sadly disease, decay or injuries may endanger teeth and ruin smiles, but with the right care your smile can last a lifetime. At City Smiles Dentistry, Kitchener we use the state-of-the-art technology to save your natural teeth. One way a tooth can be saved is with a procedure called Root Canal Treatment (RCT), also known as Endodontic Treatment.

We are dental specialists providing advanced and affordable root canal treatment in Kitchener. Our list of committed services also includes:

  • Routine Dental Care services
  • Sedation Dentistry
  • Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Dental Implant and Dental Filling
  • Tooth Extractions

RCT is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected toot. But there are some common myths and misconceptions surrounding RCT, let’s review and clarify them:

1. During RCT, the tooth’s roots are removed –  not even close. Remember, root canal only involves cleaning disinfecting and sealing off the inside of the tooth. If the tooth’s roots were removed, it would no longer have anything to anchor to your jaw bone.

2.  If a tooth doesn’t hurt it doesn’t need RCT –  not true at all. It is very much possible for a patient to require root canal treatment even if they have never experienced pain from a tooth. That is why having routine dental exams is important.

3. Teeth that go through RCT are eventually lost or pulled – not exactly. With positive oral hygiene habits such as routine brushing, flossing and dental cleaning, most teeth that have root canal treatment can last your entire life. RCT treated teeth can lay life time if a crown is placed on it after RCT.

At City Smiles Dentistry, we provide complete family dentistry in Kitchener, and a vast majority of endodontic procedures are performed pain free. For any dental problems call us at 519-576-9090.
