Root Canal Therapy

Root Canals are the most feared and misunderstood dental procedure! They are necessary when a tooth is infected, dead or dying. During root canal therapy, the dentist removes the diseased tissue from the inside of the tooth; they then fill the tooth with filling material.

Most root canals are done in house at Smile Centres. This allows our dentists to treat your pain and save your tooth! Often there have been symptoms that have been ignored; so don’t be too brave if a tooth becomes painful – the sooner we can see you, the better the prognosis.

Root canal therapy

Symptoms of an infected or abscessed tooth

  • Sensitivity to heat
  • Localized pain or swelling
  • Bad taste
  • Pain that wakes you up

Teeth can die due to trauma or decay. Before root canals were perfected, the only way to treat these symptoms was to extract the tooth!

As with other dentistry, the best action is regular care! Routine dental and hygiene visits allows the Smile Centre team catch a little problem before it becomes a big tooth ache!

See what our patients are saying:

I had a dental emergency and they were able to get me in right away. Everyone was kind, considerate, and caring!

Would highly recommend Barrie smile center all of the staff are great and make sure you get exactly what you want! I had 8 porcelain veneers done by Dr. Eisen and there perfect I love them thank you!

Super friendly and professional staff. Modern up to date equipment. Direct billing. Hey Would highly recommend this clinic, especially for young kids.

Super friendly staff, immaculate facility, lots of options. Overall great environment and have a new sense of comfort continuing on with my dental care at this office after today.

I recently visited here as I (was) looking for a new dentist. Honestly, I have to say one of the best experiences I have had at a dental clinic. I am certainly no longer looking for a dentist as I have found a great one. The staff are extremely friendly and make you feel welcome and comfortable. They were able to give me an idea of the cost prior to coming in so I knew what to expect. Stephanie (the dental hygienist) is an absolute wonder. You can tell she is very experienced and able to do the cleanings very quickly and efficiently. I would certainly recommend this clinic to any friends / family or anyone who is looking for a new dentist. They even have TV's on the ceiling so you can watch while they work.

Wonderful experience! Highly recommend. Extremely friendly, customer oriented staff that truly care about their patients and the success of their dental health. Lina was extremely welcoming and Steph is just phenomenal (dental hygienist) - she is smart, on the ball, friendly, informative, caring, funny yet professional and just plain awesome! Found our new dental office from now on!

Professional..friendly..accommodating..what more can I say... they are great! My whole family loves Stephanie. Thanks Lina and the friendly front desk staff for your patience you are always welcoming. Thank you

Dr Ko and his team are top notch. I was really worried about bringing my 3 year old for her cavity filling. Dr Ko was very reassuring and they made my daughter extremely comfortable and she did very well in their hands. Dr Ko is highly recommended in my eyes.

Kindest staff I've ever met. Everyone in the clinic greeted me and made me feel very welcomed as a new patient. I even received a tour of their facility. The checkup, cleaning and consultation were explained and completed very thoroughly. It was truly a 5 star experience from beginning to end. Keep up the great work!

Very friendly and professional. They were very thorough in explaining each step, and asked me several times if I was comfortable or if I needed anything. Everyone seemed happy to be there, and all of this translated to a positive experience for myself.

I have been a patient here for a number of years. After three dental implants, I now visit every four months for dental hygiene and a checkup. Everyone here does their job professionally with making me feel comfortable their priority. I thank them all and recommend them to anyone looking for dental care.
