Root Canal Treatment Sunnylea

 A root canal treatment Sunnylea is often considered one of the most intimidating dental procedures. However, if you need the procedure, it is best to get it done sooner than later. 

At Orchard Dental Care, we make every effort to keep your teeth healthy and smile bright. Root canal therapy is one way Dr. Elizabeth Polanski and Dr. Martin Szczutkowski help patients living in Sunnylea and surrounding communities preserve teeth that have significant damage.

Root Canal Treatment Sunnylea eliminates bacteria from an infected root canal, prevents reinfection and saves the natural tooth. They prevent tooth extractions and restores health and function to a tooth. Root canals are indispensable because they preserve natural teeth and avoid elaborate and costly tooth replacement procedures. 

When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected before it is filled and sealed. If left untreated, the infection inside the root will worsen, with the potential to impact the bone and surrounding teeth. 


After bacteria consume the sugars left on teeth, they emit an acid that corrodes teeth and causes cavities. When cavities become so deep that they reach a tooth’s inner chamber or pulp, a patient usually experiences several symptoms.

Symptoms of a Root Canal Include:

  • Persistent pain 
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Tooth discolouration 
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Abscesses
  • Severe pain when chewing or biting
  • Tooth mobility

If you have any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek immediate dental care. The infection can spread to neighbouring teeth and gums, creating more dental health issues, and it can access the bloodstream and infect vital organs throughout the body.

Dr. Szczutkowski and Dr. Polanski begin root canal therapy by creating a tiny opening in the top of the tooth’s crown and removing the infected pulp. The canal is then disinfected and filled with a biocompatible material that preserves the tooth’s anatomy. Usually, a temporary crown is placed on the tooth while it heals, and after a couple of weeks, the dentist will place your permanent prosthetic. 

Porcelain Crowns protect teeth with severe damage and allow a tooth to continue functioning normally. Crowns are colour-matched to surrounding teeth, and the porcelain has the lustre and appearance of natural enamel. When cared for properly, porcelain crowns can last a lifetime. 

Over 90% of root canals are successful, but sometimes complications can arise. Retreatment may be necessary if a narrow canal deep inside the tooth failed to respond to treatment or a canal became contaminated due to tooth decay, advanced gum disease, or tooth damage. At Orchard Dental, we provide root canal retreatments to restore dental health for failed root canals still able to recover.


When it comes to root canals, most people often worry about the pain involved. However, patients are given anesthesia to ensure a root canal treatment Sunnylea isn’t more painful than a regular dental procedure. The affected area is generally sore or numb after the procedure, with some discomfort lasting a few days.
