At Thornhill Square Dentistry in Thornhill, we know you’re probably concerned about the prospect of having a root canal, but there’s no need to be afraid. A root canal is a dental operation that prevents tooth loss. A root canal is the procedure of choice after an infection has formed in pulp of the tooth. The infection will enter the tooth's roots, cause an abscess and can spread to the jawbone. Long before the nerve roots get infected, pus accumulates in the pulp chamber causing severe pain. Extracting the tooth will end the pain and infection and is sometimes required because rapidly spreading Infection of the jawbone or other teeth is something we want to avoid.
A root canal allows you to keep your natural tooth. The bony roots of the tooth cause blood flow to the gums and bone around that tooth. Without those roots, blood flow diminished significantly, which leads to bone erosion.
We want to help you keep your natural teeth. A root canal in Thornhill, ON will eliminate the infection, allow you to keep your natural tooth, and immediately alleviate pain from the abscess.
A root canal prevents tooth loss, prevents the infection from spreading, and eliminates pain., preserves the tooth and relieves pain.
