Root Canal Therapy
Gateshead Dental is proud to provide root canal treatment to our patients in Stoney Creek and the Hamilton area.
Protect Your Oral Health With Root Canal Treatment
Underneath your tooth’s outer enamel, within the dentin, is an area of soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains nerve fibres, arteries, veins, lymph vessels, and connective tissue. A tooth’s pulp can become infected from a deep cavity, a fracture, or injury. When this happens, the pulp can die, leading to dental pain usually felt when biting down, chewing, or eating hot or cold foods and drinks.
Once the pulp starts to decay, your tooth won’t heal by itself. You will need root canal therapy in Stoney Creek to ensure you maintain your tooth’s full function. Call us today to inquire about root canal treatment.

Painful Symptoms You Need Root Canal Treatment
Many patients wait until they are experiencing tooth pain to visit the dentist. This can be a bad idea. The sooner you receive dental care, the more chances you have of stalling more serious effects; this procedure, if performed in time, can prevent the loss of the affected tooth.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact us immediately to book an appointment with our dentist.
