Why Undergo Root Canal Therapy?
The inside of every tooth contains dental pulp, a collection of nerves and vital soft tissue. Whether by way of a crack or untreated cavity, harmful bacteria can spread throughout the pulp, causing inflammation, infection, and generally compromising the condition of this essential area. If left unresolved, not only will the tooth require extraction, but problems can develop in the gums and elsewhere in the body. By treating the root canals, our team at Brampton Family Dental eliminates issues at the source, preserving your tooth and your continued wellness.
When tooth decay reaches the inner pulp, the smaller nerves within this layer start to die. As a result, the tooth becomes more sensitive to external stimuli and will eventually start to cause discomfort. If you are tired of toothaches caused by chewing, exposure to hot or cold drinks, or no known reason, root canal therapy could be a way to end your pain.
One of the most common myths about root canal therapy is that it is painful. Root canal treatment performed with the proper instruments and by a skilled professional is no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling or undergoing deep cleaning. We recommend patients come into our Brampton office for an endodontic evaluation if they experience any of the following signs:
- A persistent toothache
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
- Tenderness when chewing or applying pressure
- Swollen or abscessed gums
Keeping Your Teeth Healthy
Root canal therapy allows the tooth to survive infection by removing the pulp. The entire inner chamber is cleaned out and sealed with a bio-compatible material. Additionally, if the decay and procedure leave too little healthy structure, root canal therapy includes the application of a crown to the tooth. By halting decay and bolstering the tooth’s structure, our dentists help you keep your natural teeth without compromising the health of the greater smile.
