Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is the removal of diseased or dead pulp inside the tooth. The procedure focuses on cleaning, filling, and sealing your teeth' roots to restore their natural function. If root canal treatment is necessary for you, contact Linwell Park Dental Centre in St. Catharines.
A tooth is like a hollow tube that is open at the top and closed at the other end, the crown. A root canal is necessary if the nerves and blood arteries in this hollow tube are injured. The procedure involves cleaning the inside hollow of the tooth and then inserting a specific root canal filling, which keeps the tooth in place in the mouth. If a damaged tooth requiring root canal therapy is not treated, the tooth will eventually be extracted (removed). For any further questions, please give us a call.
