Serving Endodontic Patients in Whitby, ON

Endodontic treatment at G.T. Dental Centre relieves dental pain and saves your teeth. During root canal treatment, Dr. Thoms will carefully remove the pulp inside of a tooth, clean, disinfect, and shape the root canal, and then place a filling to seal the space. It’s a simple procedure that will relieve tooth pain caused by infection. Here at G.T. Dental Centre, we look forward to serving endodontic patients from Whitby, ON, as well as the surrounding area.

What Are the Symptoms of an Infected Tooth?

When the root of a tooth becomes badly infected, it causes extreme pain. You’ll notice the pain when you bite down or chew. You may also have a painful sensation when you drink hot or cold liquids, which can linger for a time. Some patients in need of endodontic treatment have small, pimple-like bumps on their gums when they come in for their consultation. These are all common signs of a tooth with an infected root.

What Endodontic Procedures Does Dr. Thoms Provide?

Dr. Thoms is proficient in many root canal procedures as listed below. In the rare occasion when an endodontic case is diagnosed as too complicated Dr. Thoms will refer his patients to an Endodontist. If referred the patient will return to Dr. Thoms for the final core-build up and in most cases a crown.
