Root Canal Treatment in Toronto
An injured or diseased nerve used to indicate that you are likely to lose your tooth. However, this is not the case anymore as a result of root canal therapy. This procedure requires you to visit the dentist 3 times but the process is smooth that you will experience less to no discomfort. Our dentists at Roseland Dental help retain your tooth and save your beautiful smile with root canal treatment in Toronto.
Every tooth has pulp that provides nerves and nutrients to your tooth. This pulp attaches with the root and the pulp tissue expires if it is injured or diseased. If you choose not to act upon it, then it will get infected resulting in the loss of a tooth. Root canal treatment will save the damaged pulp. The dentist will take out the damaged pulp, restyle the canal, close it for guard and make your tooth stronger by installing a crown.
Root Canal Therapy – An Efficient Way of Saving Your Infected Tooth
- This treatment helps save a diseased or infected tooth.
- It helps restore your tooth with a crown for guard against dental issues in the future.
- This is a highly successful process and can endure a lifetime. Post restoration, the doctored tooth will function just like any tooth.
Our Root Canal Therapy Procedure
- Our dentist will take x-rays of your infected tooth to determine the root canals shape and to identify infection signs.
- We use gum to separate your infected tooth from the others and to help your tooth stay dry.
- Our dentist will drill a small hole to access the root canals and treat them.
- Once the root canals are tidied and sterilized using antibacterial solutions, the root canals are shaped for fillings.
- The root canals are sealed with a sealer and a material called gutta-percha which resembles rubber.
- A crown is placed over your tooth often to prevent infection.
You have only one option other than root canal treatment. You can get your tooth extracted. This is a much cheaper process but it will leave you with a lost tooth. The teeth that surround the lost tooth area will shift into uneven positions that will result in bad bites. So this makes it essential for an implant or a bridge which is more costly compared to root canal therapy. It is recommended that you opt for root canal therapy to retain your natural teeth. Our dentist will let you know if there is any requirement for additional procedures. After treatment, you will be prescribed an antibiotic to avoid infection in the future.
