Root Canals in Orangeville

The dental pulp is made up of nerves and blood vessels and is found inside the hard white surface of the tooth. When holes or cavities develop on the surface of the tooth, bacteria can enter, causing an infection in the dental pulp. A root canal is a common dental procedure that is used to treat an infection.

How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?

If you’re experiencing painful gums, pain while eating, temperature sensitivity, chipped or cracked teeth, dark or inflamed gums, or pimply gums, you may need a root canal. Your dentist can help you identify the problem, so it’s best to contact them for a diagnosis as soon as you notice any of these symptoms.

What Happens In a Root Canal Procedure?

During your treatment, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the affected area. They will then drill into the tooth to access the infected area. The infected tissue will be removed from the tooth, and the area will be cleaned and then sealed with a filling.
