Are you experiencing severe tooth pain? Do you have a dull ache that won’t heal and causes discomfort in your life? All of these may be symptoms of an inflamed or infected nerve in your tooth, a pulp disease also known as pulpitis. If left undiagnosed and untreated, the pulp disease can eventually rot and weaken teeth. In order to treat it and save the tooth from being removed, a root canal procedure is performed.
Count on River City Dental for an effective root canal treatment in Kamloops. Our team is committed to helping our patients maintain their oral health and offering the care that they deserve.

Below are some of the symptoms to help you identify if you need treatment for a root canal treatment:
At the start of the root canal treatment procedure, our dentists will administer a local anesthetic so you don’t feel pain in the infected areas or otherwise during the process.
After, your dentist will make a tiny hole in the tooth enamel to access the infected or damaged area. Once this is done, the actual process of cleaning the abscessed area will begin. We will clean the softer tissue by rinsing and disinfecting it to prevent further infection.
At the end of the procedure, our dentists will apply a temporary filling on the top of the tooth, which will be later covered by a dental crown. The entire root canal procedure is usually completed within two sessions.
A root canal treatment procedure is one of the most effective ways of restoring your infected teeth condition without having to extract them. Some of the advantages of getting a root canal treatment include:
Before the procedure, a local anesthetic will be applied to have as minimum pain as possible. After the procedure, the anesthetic will gradually wear off. That is when you might start experiencing a mild level of discomfort and sensitivity in your mouth. This sensitivity usually lasts only a few days after the treatment. If you still experience some pain or swelling, it is recommended to book a follow-up appointment with your dentist.
It is important to note that depending on the condition of your teeth, some patients may require more than two sessions.
