Root Canal Clinic Maple Woodbridge Vaughan
A root canal (also called endodontic treatment) is the cleaning out of the inside nerve of a tooth and replacing it with a material that seals the inside of the root so infection cannot get back in.
How Do I Know If I Need A Root Canal Therapy?
A tooth is currently causing you pain or else has a history of being painful you have noticed the presence of tenderness and/or swelling in your gums near a tooth and / or a persistent or reoccurring pimple on your gums.
A root canal treatment first removes bacteria, nerve tissue, the organic debris leftover from the breakdown of nerve tissue, and bacterial toxins out from within the inner aspects of a tooth (the area originally occupied by the tooth’s nerve tissue). All of these items either are or will produce tissue irritants that can cause your body to activate an inflammatory reaction.
Once this space has been cleansed, root canal treatment involves filling in and sealing off the interior of the tooth, so bacteria can’t get back in.
After a root canal is completed, it is generally recommended to have a crown placed on the tooth to provide strength. Because the process of a root canal involves removing the nerve tissue from the tooth and essentially hollowing out the inside of the tooth, the tooth may be more susceptible to breakage. A crown will help reinforce & strengthen the tooth. If you have questions or require a root canal (endodontic procedure) please contact our root canal clinic in Maple.

The Canadian Dental Association note that Root Canal Therapy also known as endodontic therapy, is a safe and effective treatment for teeth whose core pulp has become infected or inflamed. Root canal clinic Maple can also be used in other situations (cracked tooth from an injury, deep cavity from previous filling, dental x-ray showing damaged pulp or bacterial infection) to preserve and restore the tooth.
