Getting To The Root Of The Myths

Root canals have been around for a long time, and chances are someone you know has had one. Perhaps they even told you how painful the procedure was, and how miserable they were as a result of it. At Winnipeg Square Dental, we want to dispel the myths surrounding root canals. They are an important procedure when needed, and we don’t want our patients to be frightened of this pain-relieving and tooth-saving procedure!

What Is A Root Canal?

What is a root canal? When the enamel on your teeth is eaten away by plaque acids, the vulnerable tissue on the inside of your teeth begins to decay. As this process continues, decay can eventually reach the dental pulp, the soft tissue at the center of your teeth. The dental pulp carries blood to your tooth and keeps it healthy, but when it becomes infected, your tooth is at significant risk!

You may experience a toothache, swollen gums, constant pain, and other signs of infection. It is for this reason that a root canal is performed: to remove infected tissue and eliminate your pain and discomfort!

A root canal is performed under anaesthesia, so you won’t feel anything during the procedure. We’ll remove any infected portions of your teeth and then use ultra-fine tools to reach inside your tooth and remove the infected pulp.

Once we’ve finished, we’ll reduce the size of your tooth so that it can be placed under a crown. This will further protect it from reinfection and give you a strong, stable restoration to do the work of your damaged tooth. If you have your root canal done at our Winnipeg Square location, we can even make your crown in just about an hour using our CEREC machine!

Dispelling The Myths

Of all the myths surrounding root canal treatment, the most prominent one is that they are incredibly painful! This is the opposite of true, however! Root canals are performed to remove infection and pain, and while you may feel sensitive afterward, you’ll feel much better than you did before!

Root canals also have the reputation of increasing the risk of other illnesses, like infection, heart disease, and any number of other illnesses. While this may have been a risk in the past prior to proper sterilization and cleanliness, we take great care to ensure your procedure is done cleanly and with sterilization and bacteria elimination as priority #1! Rumors even circulate that almost 100 percent of cancer patients have had root canals during their lives, which just isn’t true!

It’s also been said that you’re better off pulling a tooth rather than having a root canal. In extreme cases of decay this may be true, but in general, saving a tooth is always the best thing for your mouth! A lost tooth can lead to eventual degradation of your jawbone, which can then lead to a domino effect of lost teeth!

Root canal procedure is often avoidable, especially with good preventive care. If you’re in pain and believe that you may have an abscessed tooth, don’t delay a call to our office one more minute!

If you need a cleaning or an exam of your teeth, don’t wait for care you can get now! Call your nearest Winnipeg Square Dental office today for an appointment, or schedule one using our convenient online form. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Patient Reviews:

I started my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Jeal in February this year. I got my retainer in October. The whole treatment is very efficient and effective. It only takes 8 months to get to the result I want which is very impressive. Dr. Jeal and the staff are super patient. The plan also includes a lot of additional treatments such as teeth cleaning and whitening. I do recommend to get your Invisalign treatment here as the price is reasonable and you get really good service.

I have been seeing Dr.Jeal and his team @ Winnipeg Square Dental for approx 2 years. I am a real person with a real job and real life around me. The team at WSD really did change my life. Not only do they operate with honesty and integrity, they also make you feel like you are definately at the right place. They treat me like they remember my name, because they actually do. Every quote I have recieved (3 so far) has turned into a much smaller bill as they will only do what's nescassary. The smile I got from these folks is much more than I could ever have hoped. I would recommend Winnipeg Square Dental to everyone I know, they will not dissapoint. Truly great people, Thank you WSD :)

I first reached out to Winnipeg Square Dental years ago about the Invisalign treatment. I was hesitant and unsure due to the commitment and finances it required. Charlene was someone I was in regular contact in. There was never any pressure - in fact, I never felt judged, I felt taken care of and understood with my apprehensions. I am actually now finished my Invisalign journey, and the results are this beautiful smile I have always dreamed about having. The results are priceless. I cannot even begin how good it feels to smile! I had always been insecure to smile with my teeth - making it a habit to cover my mouth whenever I smiled. I deeply appreciate and feel so much gratitude to the team at Winnipeg Square Dental Centre, to Alyssa and Dr. Jeal. Especially to my favourite human being, Charlene. Thanks for being the awesome individuals you all are.
Truly a unique and wonderful environment; I came in hesitant and nervous about the Invisalign treatment but throughout the course of the year everyone at Winnipeg Square Dental has made me feel comfortable and welcomed. A big shoutout to everyone who works there in helping me feel confident about my smile and making a huge difference in my life!

I Love Winnipeg Square Dental. All Staff are so accommodating, friendly, genuinely care about all of there patients. I was extremely self conscious about my smile and wasn't sure what direction to go in. Invisalign was recommended and the process to get me started was amazing. I'm half way through my Invisalign treatment and i'm having an amazing experience thanks to Dr Jeal and his assistant. Can't wait for the final product. I would highly recommend this dental office as they treat you like their own! my experience thus far as been amazing. Thank you to all the staff at Winnipeg Dental square centre.
