Root Canals in Vernon

Ryan K Dentistry offers safe and effective root canals to treat damaged and infected teeth. Root canal treatment helps preserve natural teeth without having to extract them. Root canals involve clearing out decayed material from the pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the cavity and re-sealing it to prevent infection.

Why You Should Get Infected Teeth

Tooth pulp becomes infected due to cracks in the tooth, repeated treatments or trauma. Untreated tooth decay is another common reason for an infected pulp. Infection in the tooth can cause pain and discomfort while chewing and can even keep you up all night. Constant, unrelenting toothache can leave us feeling drained and irritable.

If ignored, the infection can spread to the gums or other teeth and cause periodontal disease. Gum disease can be as painful as toothache and may have severe repercussions for overall health.

Dr. Kilistoff suggests getting your teeth examined and treated as soon as possible. For safe and painless root canals in Vernon, please call our offices for an appointment.

Do You Need a Root Canal?

You should contact Ryan K Dentistry as soon as possible if you experience any of the following:

  • Severe or erratic pain when you chew or put pressure on the tooth.
  • Natural discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Heightened sensitivity to cold and hot foods even after the stimulus has been withdrawn (this usually happens when the tooth nerve is exposed)
  • Tenderness and soreness in the nearby gums

Dr. Kilistoff will identify decay, hidden cracks, or potential risks for infection during routine dental checkups and suggest suitable follow-up treatments.

Root Canal Aftercare Tips

Getting a root canal is just like getting a simple filling done. Thanks to modern sedation methods and state-of-the-art equipment, our patients report feeling minimal discomfort and no pain. You may experience slight soreness after the root canal procedure, which will disappear in a day or two. We will prescribe medication to keep you feeling comfortable.
