Root Canal Treatment in Oak Ridges, Richmond Hill

At the core of your tooth there is an area we refer to as the pulp. The pulp contains the nerve of your tooth where blood and nutrients circulate to keep the tooth healthy. If the pulp is damaged it can become infected and cause pain, swelling, bone damage and potential tooth loss. A Root Canal is needed when the pulp becomes diseased or injured and is unable to repair itself.

Root canal therapy can sometimes allow us to save your tooth. The process involves creating an opening in the tooth's crown to access the nerve. Once accessed, the area is cleaned and shaped and any infection is treated.

Once we've treated the infection, the crown is filled and sealed. Since the tooth can no longer receive vital nutrients, it will be more brittle than surrounding teeth. For this reason we often recommend a full coverage crown to strengthen and protect your tooth's chewing surface, especially if it was one of your back teeth.
