Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth is majorly decayed or fractured deeply, bacteria can sometimes affect the tooth’s pulp chamber (where nerves and blood vessels are contained). If a root canal is not performed, a painful abscess could develop due to infection in the tooth’s root and surrounding bone.
Although a root canal may sound scary, it doesn’t have to be when you choose Creek View Dental for this dental procedure! With our highly experienced staff and quality reputation in St. Catharines and surrounding area, getting a root canal does not have to be an experience to fear.
What is a Root Canal?
For most of the tooth’s structure to be saved, a root canal is completed to clean out the tooth’s canals. At the start of the procedure, an opening is made in the affected tooth’s crown which enables access to the pulp chamber. Doing so allows for careful removal of the decay and damaged pulp, as well as cleaning and shaping of the canals.
Once the canals are prepped, they are filled and sealed with a material. If needed, a post may be inserted to maintain the restoration. Filling material is then injected into the remaining space to create the final restoration.
Concerned about how much pain’s involved? At Creek View Dental, we do everything we can to ensure your root canal is as pain-free as it is to get a cavity filled!
Crowns Provide Further Strength to Your Damaged Tooth
