Brampton dentist provides comfortable root canal treatments. No one wants to have a root canal treatment, but we think root canals have gotten a pretty bad wrap that isn’t necessarily warranted anymore. These days, there is really nothing to dread about the treatment that rescues teeth and lets you keep your natural smile intact. Your trusted Brampton dentist offers comfortable, efficient, and successful root canal treatments for patients at Torbram Dental. Keep reading to learn more about the treatment — and why it’s really not as bad as you think!

When a Root Canal Is Necessary

A root canal (also known as endodontic treatment) is recommended when tooth decay or injury reaches below the exterior of a tooth and into the pulp, or the “nerve” of the tooth. A tooth that requires root canal may be very painful, but if the nerve is so infected that it is completely dead, you may be past the point of pain. Learn about the symptoms of a root canal to recognize when you have an issue and ensure you receive treatment right away.

Warning signs that you need endodontic treatment include:

  • A black or gray tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to heat, cold, or sugar
  • A pimple-like bump on the gum below the tooth
  • Painful chewing
  • A foul odor coming from the tooth
  • Swollen gums around the tooth

What Happens During a Root Canal?

The first step to removing any type of fear is to get rid of the mystery, so let’s examine how root canals really work. If you have a tooth that can’t be saved with a simple filling, inlay, onlay, or dental crown, here’s what will happen during your root canal treatment.

First, we will administer local anesthesia to ensure you do not feel any discomfort at the treatment site. Once we are sure you are completely comfortable, we can begin. Your dentist creates a small access point on the back or chewing surface of the tooth. Then, all the diseased tissue is removed from the interior of the tooth. Once the tooth is hollow, we will measure and reshape its root canals. A biocompatible material known as gutta percha fills the tooth.

Many root canals are completed over the course of two visits to the dentist; it depends on the severity of the infection. Torbram Dental offers patients same-day dentistry with CEREC one visit crowns, so it is possible that we can perform your root canal and place the final restoration in a single appointment. You and your dentist will thoroughly discuss your treatment plan to ensure you know just what to expect.
