Root Canal Treatment in North York

Sensitivity to hot or cold food or drinks, tenderness or pain when you bite or chew, or a toothache that doesn’t go away on its own could all be the telltale signs of a tooth infection.

An infected tooth can quickly become painful, debilitating, and distracting. But the good news is that root canal treatment in North York can eliminate your discomfort and infection and get you back on the path to wellness quickly.

If your dentist recommends root canal therapy, your mind may jump to all the horror stories you’ve heard about this treatment in the past. The truth is root canal treatment can get rid of your infection and save your natural tooth. Your tooth infection causes the pain that you feel, and root canal treatment actually alleviates your pain.

If an infected tooth is not treated, the infection may move to neighbouring teeth and even other parts of your body, where it can sometimes become life-threatening. Your infected tooth could become compromised to the point where tooth extraction is your only option. After tooth extraction, you’ll have to think about tooth replacement to avoid further complications with your dental health and your smile.

Being proactive about seeking help if your tooth is infected can save you time, discomfort, and even money in the long run.

What Happens During Root Canal Treatment in North York, ON?

Your dentist will first numb your tooth and the surrounding area before root canal treatment, bringing you instant relief from your pain.

Next, they’ll carefully enter your tooth from the top and remove the infected tissue inside your tooth. Once your tooth is free of infection, they’ll seal it with a temporary filling and allow it time to heal.

When your tooth is healed, you’ll return to Emery Village Dental to have it rebuilt and strengthened with a crown. A crown ensures that your tooth has all the function it did before your infection so you can eat and chew with ease once again.
