Have you recently been experiencing a severe toothache? Have you been diagnosed with a severely decayed, infected or even damaged tooth? You may be in need of root canal therapy! At Dorval Dental Clinic we are proud to offer root canals in Dorval for our patients that have a compromised root canal/tooth pulp and are interested in reducing their symptoms while improving the health of their tooth. Not sure if a root canal near you would be the best option? Schedule an appointment with Dorval Dental Clinic, we would be more than happy to evaluate your affected tooth to determine if Dorval root canal treatment is the best option for you and your overall health.
Although many patients think a root canal is a scary experience, they are actually an extremely common and easy procedure. During a root canal, your endodontist will create a tiny hole in the affected tooth, allowing them to access the root and pulp of your tooth. Next, the tooth root canal will be completely cleaned and disinfected, ensuring there is no infection, plaque or bacteria present. Once completely cleaned and sanitized, the affected tooth is then sealed.
Following a root canal, a dental crown is recommended. A dental crown can provide additional protection and strength for your affected tooth while also improving the appearance.
Left untreated, a compromised tooth root can actually become a serious problem, resulting in the loss of the tooth or more seriously, sepsis (an infection of the blood that can be fatal). When it comes to your smile, it is always best to protect and preserve your natural teeth, although they can be replaced, nothing is quite as functional and healthy as a real smile.
