WHAT is Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Brampton
If your dental pulp is infected, a root canal is the best treatment to save your natural tooth. This treatment involves removing infected or diseased dental pulp which is the innermost layer of your tooth. The pulp of your tooth contains the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. If this innermost part of your tooth gets infected or inflamed, you will experience severe pain. In this case, performing a root canal treatment becomes necessary to save the tooth from falling out. At Smileton Dental, we can save your smile by preventing tooth loss. Severe pain, swelling, or a dental infection is common symptoms of the infected dental pulp.
Performing a root canal timely can let you keep the tooth rather than having it removed and replaced with an artificial tooth. This common endodontic treatment is effective in saving your natural teeth and helps you avoid dental implants or bridges. The process of the root canal involves removing the pulp to eliminate bacteria and decay. The gap created after removal is then filled with medicated dental materials to restore the tooth. You might need root canal therapy if you notice symptoms such as:
- Intense pain
- Prolong sensitivity
- Swelling or tender gums
- Discolored tooth
