Back to work

To our valued patients:


Life has been anything but normal this spring and we sincerely hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you and your family starting in August. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back in March. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. 


Our office has always followed strict infection control standards and in order to keep us all protected during this pandemic and in the future, we have updated our protocols. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different. 


•        We will ask some screening questions before your appointment and you’ll be asked those same questions again                   when you’re in the office. 


•        You may be asked to wait outside our office or in your car and call us when you arrive and then wait for a call back to           let you know when you can enter the office. 


•        We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the clinic. There are more dispensers around the           office for you to use as needed.


•        Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or children’s toys since those items are difficult to fully disinfect. 


•        Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility               for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one                   time. 


•        You may be surprised that we’re wearing more protective gear – such as masks, face shields, gowns – than we                       normally do during your visit. 


Rest assured, all these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.


We look forward to seeing you again. If you have any questions, please let us know. To make an appointment, call our office at 705-855-3200 or email us at drwitzu@gmail.com  


Thank you for patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming you back!

Improve Your Teeth Health With Our Root Canals Treatment at Sudbury

When the nerve of a tooth has become compromised due to decay or infection, a root canal may become necessary. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated dental materials. This process helps restore the tooth to its full, pain-free function.

Root canals are the preferred method of choice in saving a tooth that would otherwise die or need to be extracted. Many patients have the mistaken belief that extracting a tooth is the solution to a decaying or diseased tooth. Extractions will ultimately be more costly in the long run and cause significant problems for the adjacent teeth. Why remove the tooth when you could save it?

Chelmsford Family Dentistry provides extensive care and treatment for those who need root canal treatment in Sudbury. We first conduct a complete diagnosis and thorough examination to understand the condition of your teeth.

Do You Need a Root Canal?

Some signs and symptoms that you may need root canal therapy include:

  • An Abscess (or Pimple) on the Gums
  • Sensitivity to Hot and Cold
  • Severe Toothache Pain
  • Sometimes No Symptoms are Present
  • Swelling and/or Tenderness

Reasons for root canal therapy:

  • Decay has Reached the Tooth Pulp (the Living Tissue inside the Tooth)
  • Infection or Abscess has Developed inside the Tooth or at the Root Tip
  • Injury or Trauma to the Tooth

What does Root Canal Therapy Involve?

While the tooth is numb, an access opening is made at the top and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria. If decayed tooth matter is present, it will also be removed using specialized dental instruments.

The roots and the cavity inside the tooth will be filled and sealed using sterile dental material. A filling will be placed to cover the opening at the top of the tooth. Additionally, all teeth that have received a root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed. This will protect the tooth from breaking and bacterial intrusion, as well as restore it to its full function.
