Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Choose Your Smile – Dr. Stephen Malfair, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our patients and many report minimal discomfort.
Root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling from your dental professional.
Our goal is to help our root canal patients avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment by providing essential dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth, we provide the most advanced endodontic treatment in British Columbia
How do you know if you need a root canal? You should speak with your Choose Your Smile – Dr. Stephen Malfair dental professional immediately if you experience tenderness or pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage. However, for some endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is important to visit your endodontic dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination and dental cleaning.
Call Choose Your Smile – Dr. Stephen Malfair, at 250-860-8900 to schedule an appointment. We are committed to the highest standard of dental care.
