Root Canal Treatment Brampton Dentists

A root canal allows you the option to keep your tooth after the root has become infected, rather than having to extract the tooth. When it’s an option, saving a natural tooth is always the best choice.

A root canal, also known as endodontic treatment, removes infected, damaged or dead pulp from the inside of a tooth which is filled with nerve endings and blood vessels.

When a deep cavity develops or a filling cracks, bacteria are able to enter the tooth leading it to become infected and abscessed. The patient may experience pain in the tooth if this happens. Should the pulp in the tooth become infected beyond the help of restoration, it will have to be extracted completely. An untreated abscessed tooth will pose serious threat to your overall oral health and should be taken care of immediately.

Root Canal Retreatment

A root canal treatment is most often successful. However, there are few cases in which a second root canal treatment is may be needed in which the root canal filling is removed and the canal is re-cleaned, reshaped and refilled.

After a root canal your tooth may be tender for the first week or two. However, should you experience noticeable pain or swelling, consult your dentist to ensure the proper measures are taken to care for the tooth.

Root Canal Surgery

If a routine root canal treatment will not resolve the issue, root canal surgery may be needed.During surgery the tooth root end is examined for fractures, the areas of the tooth root that could not be successfully salvaged are removed and the root is cleaned and cleared of infection that may have prevented healing following regular treatment.

When bacteria (germs) enter your tooth through deep cavities, cracks or flawed fillings, your tooth can become abscessed. An abscessed tooth is a tooth with an infection in the pulp. If pulp becomes infected, it needs to be removed. An abscessed tooth may cause pain and/or swelling. Your dentist may notice the infection from a dental x-ray or from other changes with the tooth. If left untreated, an abscessed tooth can cause serious oral health problems.
