Root Canals

Share this Page

If the cause of your tooth pain is serious decay or infection, your dentist may recommend a root canal. At our Thornhill office, we can provide root canals to ensure you have healthy teeth!


Why might a root canal be necessary?

A root canal is a multi-step dental procedure that involves removing the infected tooth pulp (and sometimes the nerve) from a tooth, and sealing it to protect against future tooth pain.

To prevent the infection from returning, the area is cleaned and the root of the tooth is restored.

After a  tooth that has undergone a root canal, a crown or some other tooth restoration is required to protect the integrity of your tooth. 

Symptoms of an Infected Tooth

  • Severe tooth pain 
  • Abscess or pimple on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold food/beverages
  • Tenderness and swelling

How do I take care of my tooth after a root canal?

To maintain your oral health during this time, you must pay regular visits to the dentist and continue proper at-home care. Our team will provide you with thorough instructions for proper home care after your dental procedure.
