Root Canal Treatments in Dundas
When a tooth begins to die due to a fracture located deep within the tooth or due to deep tissue oral bacteria and other infections, a root canal procedure is oftentimes required in order to prevent the spread or formation of an infection and possible tooth loss. There are various signs that indicate that you may need a root canal treatment, and some common signs include:
- Gum tissue swelling and irritation
- Tooth discolouration
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold
- Tooth sensitivity to pressure when chewing or biting down
At Dundas Valley Dentistry we listen to your needs, conduct x-rays, and take other necessary steps to identify whether you need a root canal treatment to stop infection and prevent tooth loss. It is very important to contact Dundas Valley Dentistry if you experience any signs of sudden pain and sensitivity in a particular area. If left untreated, the problem will eventually get worse and cause greater pain.
Wisdom Teeth Procedures in Dundas
Wisdom teeth molars generally develop at the age of 10 and begin to appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Oftentimes wisdom teeth removal is required because other surrounding teeth are actually preventing them from surfacing. This in turn may cause many oral and medical complications, such as jaw pain, teeth shifting of surrounding teeth, which would later likely require braces to fix, and even sinus problems. Performing a wisdom tooth extraction is a common procedure that requires oral surgeon expertise.
At Dundas Valley Dentistry we take preventative steps before there is a cause for medical concern. We ensure that every patient is well informed and relaxed by providing sedation dentistry and general anesthesia. We take the time to walk you through all the steps and necessary procedures prior to concluding that wisdom tooth extraction is necessary.
