Endodontics, or root canal therapy, is the filling of the root structure of your tooth. It is used to treat trauma to the tooth or significant decay involving the dental pulp (the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue of the tooth).

During an endodontic procedure, the tooth is cleaned, filled, and restored to its original shape and size. Generally, Dr. Cohen or Dr. DeCesare (our root canal dentist in Burlington) will recommend a crown which is placed over the tooth to protect it from further damage and microbial infection.

Similar to a helmet on your head, this crown will protect your tooth for years to come. A root canal treatment boosts your tooth’s chances of survival.

What Are the Causes of a Root Canal Infection?

The common causes of root canal infection or inflammation include deep-seated tooth decay, repeated dental procedures on the affected tooth, and a chip or crack in the tooth.

A damaged dental pulp doesn’t heal on its own. If the infection spreads deep into the roots of the tooth, it can lead to the formation of an abscess in the gums. An abscess can spread the infection to other parts of your body, posing serious health risks. A root canal treatment removes the pulp, cleans, and disinfects the area to prevent the spread of infection.

Dr. Cohen and Dr. DeCesare are skilled in minimizing pain and ensuring your comfort throughout the duration of your root canal therapy. If your tooth requires root canal treatments, don’t delay. Our Burlington clinic is at your disposal to help spare you from a more costly problem or procedure in the long run.

What Is the Estimated Root Canal Recovery Time?

Following a successful procedure, the root canal recovery period can take around 1 or 2 weeks. You can experience temporary mild pain 3 days after the procedure, but it should go away with proper oral hygiene. If the pain persists longer, check in with us for a follow-up examination.

If you’re looking for a root canal treatment in Burlington, call Lakeside Family Dental to book a free consultation or to inquire about the procedure or how much a root canal costs at our clinic. Our team of dentists and staff offer a pleasant dental experience at a fair price. Call us at (905) 637-0801.

Absolutely amazing! Very highly recommend! Everyone made me feel welcome and always made me feel at ease as I was very anxious and embarrassed. I required Dentures the whole experience was awesome from start to finish. Very highly skilled! I drove one hour to and from each appointment and it was worth it!

The service is excellent by all the staff and Dr Cohen is by far the best dentist that I have ever been to. He is knowledgeable and experienced and ensures that you are comfortable while he is working on your teeth. Many people are concerned with the freezing process when having work done, but Dr. Cohen is so good that you will literally not feel anything. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen.

There is no joy living with bad teeth. Less joy understanding how expensive help can be. Most centres are more concerned with money, rather than the patient. Lakeside, Dr. Cohen and the team, are amazing. Why? Because they put me first. Are honest with options and realistic treatment. They want the same thing that I have wanted for years, to see me smile again. I believe in their team, their approach and their desire to make a difference for every patient. They have my trust.

Dr Michael did a great job on my first implant. I was so impressed with the high level of personal service that I transferred my account from a dentist where I had a 20+ year relationship. I feel Lakeshore Dental can serve me better as I need more crowns and implants. The office is clean, spacious and as safe as any business can be. I recommend Dr Michael and his excellent and very friendly support team

I was recommended this dental office by a coworker, I've had many dentists before that didn't understand how sensitive my teeth actually are and since my very first appointment here I knew I finally found the one. They are extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you might have. Very professional and clean environment. They bill your insurance directly which is a huge relief, I'm so happy to have a dentist I can trust. They are so gentle, you also don't feel the needles going in! This is the first dental office where I didn't feel ANY pain whatsoever. I cannot say enough good things about them.
