Endodontics - Oakville

At ChaggerDental our dentists also specialize in endodontics, a dental speciality that deals with tooth pulp and the tissue surrounding the root of a tooth. When nerve endings in the tissue surrounding a tooth become damaged or infected, as is often noted by pain, a root canal is the usual method used to repair the tooth.

Symptoms of nerve damage or infection include, severe tooth pain, darkened color of the tooth, unusual sensitivity to heat and cold, swelling, tenderness or recurring lesions on the gums. However, in some cases, even though no symptoms are present, endodontics may still be an essential step in maintaining overall oral health.

A consultation with one of our dentists can help you determine if endodontics is a viable option for you.
