Root Canal Treatment in Toronto, ON

Root canal treatment has allowed millions of teeth to be saved each year be preventing extraction or removal of those teeth.

 

What Is Root Canal Treatment?

The root canal space in the tooth houses nerves and blood vessels that help the tooth to grow and develop. Root canal treatment also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic treatment, involves the repair of a damaged tooth and the removal of dead, infected, or injured dental pulp from the root canal space located in the tooth.

When Is Root Canal Treatment Performed?

Saving a tooth from being extracted is always the best option when it is available. An extracted tooth will allow drifting or shifting of nearby teeth as well as bone loss in the area of the missing tooth. Saving the tooth also preserves chewing function and protects nearby teeth from excessive wear. Instead of removing or extracting an infected or severely damaged tooth, root canal therapy aims to save and repair the tooth.

 

Possible Signs That You May Need Treatment

A common symptom that could indicate treatment is tooth pain. The pain can vary from mild to severe and could vary in its intensity throughout the day. Some patients may notice that the pain flares up when they are chewing or biting on something. Sensitivity to hot drinks and foods is another possible symptom. The gum tissue may be swollen or feel tender in the affected area as well.

 

Treatment Considerations

Root canal treatment can be done in one or two appointments; your dentist will let you know how many visits are required. You may experience tenderness of the affected tooth for approximately a week or two. If you notice severe pain and or swelling, let your dentist know.

If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity to hot liquids or foods, let your dentist know. They will be able to diagnose the issue and recommend treatment.

Do you suffer from arthritis?

Consider using an electric or battery-operated toothbrush, which can reduce plaque and gingivitis more effectively than manual brushing. The wider handle on an electric toothbrush also makes it easier to hold.

Along with brushing and flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial rinse can help prevent decay and gum problems. Chewing sugar-free gum after a meal can also help by increasing saliva flow, which washes bacteria away and neutralizes acid.
