A root canal is a procedure to remove infected pulp from the root of a tooth. This becomes necessary when cavities go unchecked. The goal of a root canal is to save your original tooth and prevent any further decay. At Brampton North Dental we understand the fear many patients have surrounding root canals. That’s why we do everything we can to ensure the process is as quick and pain-free as possible.
What Happens at an Appointment
At a root canal appointment, the tooth and surrounding gum tissue is first numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure the procedure is completely pain-free. The dentist then uses a very fine instrument to remove the infected pulp from the tooth, seals it, and may then apply a crown depending on your particular case.
