Dear Community,


We know that we are not the only Canadians affected by this health care crisis. We applaud all those health care workers who are on the front lines of this pandemic and we send our love and comfort to all those who are directly affected by the virus.


In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak and the recommendations made by Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario and the Premier of Ontario Doug Ford, our office will be closed until further notice as the province has declared a state of emergency to contain the spread.


Our patient’s health is extremely important to us and we want to make every effort to reduce the risk of possible infection. We have made all necessary attempts to contact anyone with an appointment during this closure and we do apologize to all our patients for the inconvenience.


This virus is now considered to be a transmitted through community contact. Please follow these guidelines to reduce your risk:


- Leave 6ft between each other

- Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds each time

- Do not touch your face, eyes or mouth

- Report to a public health facility if you have a fever, cough or sore throat

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.
