Do you have a severe toothache? Is your tooth having a cavity that can’t be filled? If yes, opt for root canal treatment. This dental procedure involves the removal of a diseased pulp that is generally the cause behind the pain along with the tooth’s nerve. These pulps and nerves are located within the root canal. After being removed, the pulp chamber and root canal of the infected tooth are cleaned, medicated and sealed.
Markham Woodbine Dental, our qualified family dentists in Markham offers safe and reliable root canal treatment to patients dealing with pain. Using a dental crown, we strive to protect and strengthen the infected tooth.
Why Get A Root Canal Therapy (RCT)?
An endodontic treatment or root canal therapy is one of the common treatment that helps in saving a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth from infection and inflammation. If it’s neglected or not treated promptly, the problem may lead to severe pain or tooth abscess. To protect a tooth from extraction, RCT is done.
This treatment is needed for infected or inflamed pulp having a soft tissue inside the tooth. Pulp infection in the root canal may occur, if you have a:
- Cracked or chipped tooth
- Damaged tooth root
- Deep cavity or filling
- Other serious injuries to the tooth
How We Do It?
Root canal therapy in Markham is an ideal way to prevent oral infections along with saving the natural tooth from extraction. Compared to other treatment methods, RCT is less painful and expensive. In most of the cases, it is completed in one or two visits, depending on the level of infection and treatment plan. Our approach includes:
- Your tooth is numbed to ease the anxiety and ensure comfort.
- A flexible sheet of latex or non-latex material is placed over your tooth to keep it dry.
- An x-ray is done to view the nerves and pulps in the root canal and pulp chamber.
- The diseased nerve or pulp is removed from the root canal of the infected tooth.
- Each root canal is cleaned, shaped and disinfected before being filled.
- To treat the infection, medicine is placed in the pulp chamber and root canal.
- A temporary filling is placed inside the infection tooth to prevent infection.
