Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy in Mississauga
At Churchill Smiles Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing quality endodontic care in a comfortable environment. Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on addressing teeth that have damaged or infected pulp. The pulp is a collection of connective tissue, nerves and blood vessels. By removing the decayed pulp from inside the root, it can be saved from extraction.
Signs that a tooth may need to undergo root canal treatment include:
- Gum tenderness or inflammation
- Teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold temperatures
- Pain when chewing
- Tooth discoloration
- A constant toothache
It’s necessary and important to inform your dental health care professional if you experience any combination of the symptoms above. Early intervention is the key to saving infected teeth from extraction.
A Root Canal Therapy Procedure
Once you are ready for treatment, we administer local anesthesia to numb the area. At Churchill Smiles Dentistry, we do everything we can to maximize patient comfort. Our patients are our number one priority.
First, we remove the compromised pulp from the top of the crown. Next, the area is the sterilized and filled with gutta-percha, a composite material that prevents bacteria from re-entering the tooth. Your dentist will place a crown over the natural dental structure to renew dental function and protect it from sustaining damage and re-infection.
