Root Canals in Brampton
A root canal procedure is a treatment for damaged or infected roots of teeth. This ailment is usually accompanied by severe tooth pain. After applying a local anesthetic, our dental professionals will drill into the tooth to reach and remove the infected root pulp inside the root canals. Next, we will disinfect the canals and fill in the empty space to prevent further infections. In most cases, when the procedure is complete, you’ll be fitted with a dental crown to cover and protect the natural tooth in the long-term.
Keeping You Comfortable During Your Appointment
Root canal procedures are a routine part of modern dentistry. The treatment is usually completed in one or two visits and requires the use of profound anesthesia to completely numb the area. If you are nervous during dental procedures or have anxiety with dental needles, we may recommend sedation dentistry for this procedure. Tell us about your concerns before the appointment, and we will work with you to create a plan to help keep you calm and relaxed during your visit.
What Causes a Root Infection?
Root infections in teeth are caused by two main factors: Physical trauma to the tooth and severe tooth decay. Tooth trauma is often unexpected and unpreventable, but you can take steps to help prevent root infections caused by tooth decay. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily, combined with routine dental hygiene appointments, can help reduce your risk of root infections.
