Toronto Root Canal Therapy

LIberty Village Dental - Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is required when the tooth’s pulp is infected or if the tooth is practically dead on the inside. The tooth’s pulp consists of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, which is basically keeping the tooth alive. Sometimes, dental injury, factures or extensive tooth decay starts the infection inside the tooth. As it worsens, you might feel the following symptoms:

  • Acute and intense pain
  • Sharp pain when biting down
  • Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods
  • Dull ache and pressure
  • Tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums.

Root Canal Infections are associated with bad pain. It might get difficult to continue with your day to day activities. At Liberty Village Dental, our highly knowledgeable and experienced doctors will perform your root canal therapy, while providing you with comfort and peace of mind.

The endodontic treatment process goes as follows:

  1. Opening of the tooth
  2. Removal of the pulp
  3. Careful cleaning of the pulp chamber
  4. Filling of the area
  5. Closing the tooth
  6. Restoring the tooth to its original shape and strength

 

It is recommended to follow your dentist’s instructions for a proper and quick healing. Modern day technology has made dental procedures, such as root canal treatment, very easy, simple and relatively pain-free, so you might be able to go on with your daily activities after the procedure, unless instructed otherwise by your dentist.
