ROOT CANALS IN BRADFORD, KESWICK & ORANGEVILLE
Root canal therapy is a restorative dental treatment that is done when the pulp and/or nerve in the middle of the tooth is exposed to severe infection or trauma. In instances where the pulp and nerve of the tooth cannot be saved, the recommended course of treatment will entail their removal via a root canal. The removal of the infected and/or damaged pulp and nerve will allow the tooth to survive. Once the canal has all pulp, nerve tissue, debris, and bacteria removed, it will be filled with a sealer paste and rubber compound. To protect the tooth, which may become more brittle as time passes, subsequent restorative treatment, such as a dental crown, may be recommended.
If you are suffering from toothaches, tooth sensitivity, swollen gums, or any other concerning symptoms, you may be due for a root canal procedure.
