At our Oshawa dental office, we regularly perform root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients' teeth. When a tooth becomes infected it can spread into the dental pulp, which is the center of the tooth. Inside the dental pulp are the nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. These are where all the sensitive areas of the tooth are contained. As such, when the area becomes infected it can be incredibly painful, requiring immediate treatment.
Reasons to get a root canal:
Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
Crack or chip in the tooth
Root canals in Oshawa are a common procedure that work by creating a small hole in the tooth so that all the infected areas can be removed. Once done, we will clean the area to ensure that the infection is gone. We usually prescribe antibiotics for aftercare as well. This treatment is extremely effective for saving damaged teeth. Once completed, eating and drinking become easy again.
Please get in touch with our Oshawa dentists at our Lake Vista Dental office to discuss if root canal therapy is the right option for you.
