Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

If you have an infected tooth, then root canal therapy is essential because the infection will not go away on its own. When a tooth is chipped, cracked, or has a large cavity, bacteria can enter the tooth chamber and infect the soft tissue containing nerves and blood vessels, called the pulp. If the issue is not dealt with, it can spread to other teeth or lead to systemic infection and other health problems.

Root canal therapy is a procedure where we remove the infected pulp to safeguard your oral health. Here are some of the symptoms that indicate you may have an infected tooth:

  • Constant, sharp, or prolonged pain in the jaw or tooth
  • Pain when you chew food
  • Abscess on your gums
  • Deep discoloration or graying of your tooth
  • Pus at the base of your tooth
  • Bad taste that doesn't go away
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks

Our friendly team provides root canal therapy to get you out of pain as soon as possible so you can focus on what matters most. We will provide honest insight on whether you will need two or three appointments to properly address the infection and restore your oral health.

Our Root Canal Therapy Process in North York

Our general dentist will begin with a gentle exam to determine the severity and the extent of the infection, and which dental structures have been compromised. We will create a treatment plan that is customized to your unique needs. Our team sits down with you and asks questions to fully understand your concerns and oral health needs, and we adjust your treatment plan accordingly.

We understand that many people suffer from dental anxiety, which is why we offer nitrous oxide to alleviate your anxiety and help you enjoy a calm and relaxing visit. Our team will numb the affected area before we begin the procedure to maximize your comfort. Once you're comfortable, our dentist will create a tiny access point in your tooth, gently extract the infected pulp, then fill the tooth chamber with an antibacterial solution to protect it from further infections. We will seal the access point and schedule a follow-up visit to place your custom dental crown to protect your tooth structure from any further damage. Our friendly team will provide helpful tips and instructions for your recovery.
