When your tooth becomes inflamed or infected, a root canal may be the appropriate response. Root canal therapy involves the removal of infected pulp from inside a tooth, cleaning and disinfecting it. The tooth is then filled and sealed. A filling is then added onto the root canal; we advise putting a crown on the top of the root canal tooth for protection. A root canal can regularly offer a contrasting option of having your damaged or decayed tooth extracted which also helps maintain your smile’s default appearance.

A root canal is a treatment to repair and salvage a severely damaged or infected tooth. The process includes removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it after which filling and sealing is done. The typical causes affecting the pulp are cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term “root canal” simply implies cleaning of the canals within the tooth's root.
We assess the health status of the tooth and sometimes prescribe medications if need be to control infection and to offer comfort. We carry out any palliative treatment required, then schedule you for a root canal therapy (1-2 visits usually) in our office. In some cases, we refer to an Endodontist who specializes in this area of dentistry.

Is a Dental Crown needed After My Root Canal?
Yes, crowns are an integral part of the tooth restoration procedure, offering extra protection and strength to a tooth once the majority portion of the tooth’s “living” inside has been removed. Without a protective crown, the treated tooth is much more prone to break or experience other types of trauma that can result in future extraction of the tooth.
