A root canal procedure involves the removal of any decay, bacteria, and nerves from a severely damaged tooth. At Hunter Dental, our Markham dentists use root canals to repair damaged teeth and restore their function.
If the nerves inside your tooth become infected or start to decay, our Markham dentists will perform a root canal procedure to repair it and save your tooth.
Without a root canal, the root of a damaged tooth will die, requiring your dentist to extract it. Removing a tooth is not typically the best solution as it can cause other issues for your surrounding teeth.
When your dentist removes the decay and roots from the damaged tooth, they will then fill the space with a rubber-based material to seal it. The tooth will be covered with a dental crown to protect it. This restores the function of the tooth.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be a sign that you could need a root canal.
Visit your dentist to discuss your concerns. They will be able to diagnose the issue and determine if a root canal is required, or may recommend other treatment options.
