What Causes a Root Canal?
A root canal procedure is used to treat infected or injured roots of teeth. Injuries and infections can happen due to trauma to the mouth, gum disease, or extensive tooth decay. Root infections can cause severe tooth pain and inflammation. If left untreated it could develop into an abscess. If you’re suffering from tooth pain, make an appointment with our dentists today.
What to Expect During a Root Canal Procedure
A root canal procedure involves cleaning out the infected roots of your tooth and filling them in to prevent further infections. In most cases a root canal allows you to keep your natural tooth in place. After the roots are cleaned, the tooth is sealed with a filling or a crown, depending on the amount of damage to the tooth. Root canals are routine procedures here at Avenue Dental in Brantford, so you can feel confident in booking your procedure with us.
