Root Canal Therapy in Mississauga
Injuries to the teeth or tooth roots or advanced tooth decay in the teeth can sometimes lead to bacterial infections in the tooth roots. When this happens, severe tooth pain usually results quickly, leading patients to call our offices for last-minute appointments. If this happens to you, be sure to reach out to us quickly so we can examine your teeth using dental x-rays, diagnose an infection, and perform a root canal to clear out the infected roots. A root canal procedure can leave you with a healthy, pain-free tooth, which is often the best outcome in these situations.
How Are Root Canal Procedures Performed?
Infections of the root canals and tooth pulp (nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissue inside the root canals) are a common occurrence. Our dentists perform root canals with ease and confidence. Your procedure will begin with careful planning based on your dental x-rays. Once you have received a local anesthetic to help numb the pain and sensation, we will drill a tiny hole in the tooth to access and clear out the infected tissue in the root canals. After filling the tooth with a filling material, we may also book a follow-up appointment to check on the root canals and place a dental crown to strengthen the tooth.
