Understanding Root Canal Treatments

The word "root canal" is usually a reminder of pain and discomfort feelings for many people who have undergone the process in the past. The main target of maintaining oral health is to preserve all teeth in a vital condition, but this is not always possible. There may be cases when parts of the tooth need to be removed, which is the case in a root canal treatment.

  • Why You May Need Root Canal Treatment?

    A root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected, often causing severe pain and discomfort. This type of problem is usually caused by deep decay, repeated dental treatment on the tooth, a crack/chip, or an injury sustained to the tooth.

    In many cases, patients do not maintain their regular dental visits and expose themselves to decay that passes their tooth enamel and reaches the pulp. The tooth pulp is the live part of the tooth that is much softer than the enamel or dentin and can NOT tolerate any infection even if it's very minor.

  • Signs You May Need Root Canal Treatment

    If you suffer from sensitivity or severe pain in an area in your mouth, it may be the case that this pain can only be treated by a root canal treatment. During this process, our Thornhill dentist will clean all the nerve canals and remove all the pulp tissues. This tooth will no longer be alive and it will be more fragile. Because it is more fragile, dentists recommend having a crown placed on the tooth in order to preserve it from further fracture or breakage.

    A root canal treatment is not recommended for all cases. If the tooth has a very weak structure that cannot be a firm foundation for a crown, it is considered hopeless and will be extracted. In these cases, dental implants will become the only solution to fill the missing tooth spot.

  • Root Canal Treatment Procedure

    In most cases, the tooth can be saved with the treatment of the nerve by removing the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, filling the tooth and finally, sealing the space. Once the root canal is deemed successful by one of our Thornhill dentists, a restoration and crown are placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to its full function.

    In some cases, if the canals are difficult to access, a referral to an endodontist (root canal specialist) may be required. Advanced technology has enabled root canal therapy to be performed with a higher success rate and lower time consumption.

  • What is an Apicoetomy?

    Surgical procedures such as apicoectomy are also performed on root canal treated teeth that have persistent infection or inflammation at the root of the tooth. This method allows our Thornhill dentist to open the area near the tooth, eliminate any affected tissue and remove the very end of the root to promote proper healing.

    Doncaster Dental Studio in Thornhill provides root canal services by Dr. Shawn Groyeski and referrals are sometimes sent to an endodontic specialist.
