Endodontics in Richmond

If you are suffering from a severe tooth infection, you may need treatment from an endodontist. An endodontist has advanced training to treat your infected tooth and restore it back to health.

Treating Your Tooth Infection

A tooth infection occurs when bacteria enter the tooth through a cavity and infiltrate the dental pulp. Your endodontist will perform a root canal by removing the infected portion of the dental pulp, cleaning the area, and then sealing the cavity with a filling.

When Should I See an Endodontist?

If you notice any symptoms, including tooth pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold foods, discomfort while biting, and swollen or discoloured gums, you may be suffering from a tooth infection. We recommend visiting your dentist as soon as symptoms begin to prevent the infection from spreading.
