WHAT is Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Brampton
Preserving your natural tooth is of utmost importance when dealing with an infected dental pulp, and a root canal treatment is the optimal solution. By addressing the infected or diseased dental pulp, which resides in the innermost layer of your tooth, this procedure aims to save your tooth from extraction. Within the dental pulp lies a complex network of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When this vital part becomes infected or inflamed, excruciating pain is often experienced, necessitating the need for a root canal treatment. At Smileton Dental, we specialize in saving smiles by preventing tooth loss caused by infected dental pulp. Common symptoms indicating an infected dental pulp include severe pain, swelling, or a dental infection.
By promptly undergoing a root canal treatment, you can retain your natural tooth rather than resorting to artificial replacements like dental implants or bridges. This widely performed endodontic procedure effectively removes the infected pulp, eliminating bacteria and decay. The resulting void is then filled with medicated dental materials to restore the tooth's structure. If you observe symptoms such as:
- Intense pain
- Prolong sensitivity
- Swelling or tender gums
- Discolored tooth
it is crucial to consider root canal therapy.
