Repair, Protect, And Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Therapy
A dental procedure that involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from an injured tooth, at Dr. George Daguiam Dentistry Awake or Asleep in Orillia, we know that root canal therapy not only removes pain and infection – it helps patients avoid tooth extraction.
Why might someone need root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is recommended when the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This can happen as a result of tooth decay, a cracked tooth, or an injury to the tooth. If the pulp is not treated, it can lead to pain, infection, and eventually tooth loss.
How is root canal therapy performed?
The procedure is usually completed in two visits and involves cleaning out the infected pulp and preparing the tooth for a temporary filling. During the second visit, the tooth will be permanently sealed with a filling or a crown.
How should I care for a tooth that’s received root canal therapy?
It’s important to brush and floss regularly, and to see us for regular checkups. It’s also recommended that you consider having a crown placed on your tooth to extend its life.
