Root Canals Provided by Dr. Adam Chapnick General Dentist in Barrie
Say No More To Your Root Canal Problems
When a tooth becomes infected, the only way to prevent its eventual loss is with a root canal treatment by Barrie dentist, Dr. Adam Chapnick. In partnership with his dental team, we have decades of combined experience performing this common and important procedure. If you have noticed an abscess or any other indications of a tooth infection, please contact Molson Park Dental Office online or by calling (705) 722-4848 to schedule a root canal consultation today.
Symptoms of Tooth Infection
Pain is the most common indication of an infected tooth. This includes persistent and dull pain, as well as sharp pain when biting or chewing. Addition symptoms of tooth infection include:
- Painful to pressure
- Red or swollen gums
- Tooth discolouration
- A bad taste in the mouth or bad breath that does not diminish with brushing
As a tooth infection gets worse and spreads, it will destroy the surrounding bone and can eventually cause serious side effects if it invades vital structures in the head and neck. A dental infection treated properly with root canal therapy and a proper restoration can be completely resolved and the tooth can last a lifetime.

The Root Canal Procedure
The root canal procedure is performed under localized anesthetic and is no more invasive than a typical dental filling. However, if you are uncomfortable with the idea of a root canal, Dr. Chapnick would be happy to discuss your sedation options.
To remove bacteria and debris from the inside of the tooth, a small access hole will need to be made. Through this hole, infected tooth pulp is removed with special instruments and occasional flushing. When necessary, antibacterial medications will be administered before the tooth is sealed and covered with a dental crown. Covering the tooth helps prevent reinfection and provides complete restoration of strength and beauty.
The root canal process is typically completed in a single office visit, but may require more than one if infection is severe. What will be required in your case is best determined during your evaluation with Dr. Chapnick in Barrie or Toronto.
