Root Canal Specialists in Toronto
Teeth are solid on the outside, but have a hollow canal on the inside that is home to the dental pulp. The pulp consists of nerves, blood vessels and soft tissue. If the pulp gets infected or injured, due to a fracture, dental accident, decay or cavities, Root Canal Therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, might be necessary.
The Root Canal Treatment Process
It is very common for people to fear endodontic treatment. However, today’s dental technology has made the process smooth, simple and comfortable. Oral sedation is usually used to bring the patient to a comfortable, relaxed and pain-free state, while our professional dentist at Chaplin Dental get the chance to do what they excel at the most. First, your dentist makes an opening into the chewing surface of the tooth, giving him access to the pulp chamber. He will then remove the infected pulp and clean the space thoroughly, making sure that there’s no sign of infection left. The pulp chamber is then filled and sealed carefully, so that there’s minimum to no chance for the infection to reoccur. In most cases, a dental restoration has to be attached onto the tooth to restore the tooth’s shape, strength and function. The dental restoration also serves as prevention from future damage to the tooth.
