Maintain Your Natural Smile With Root Canal Therapy
A dental procedure that eradicates infection from a significantly diseased tooth, root canal therapy not only removes damaged and infected pulp tissue, but it also helps ensure that a patient can retain their natural smile and avoid tooth extraction. At Dr. Sherman Ki & Associates in Oshawa, our experienced dentist is well-versed in performing this restorative procedure and is here to help patients in need.
What is involved in root canal therapy?
Our dentist will begin the procedure using local anesthesia to numb the area. Next, the damaged pulp tissue will be carefully removed from the tooth’s root canals before shaping, cleaning, and disinfecting them. A rubber-like material will be added to fill and seal the canals, preventing any further infection. In most cases, a temporary filling will be placed until a permanent filling or crown is placed.
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
This procedure can not only save a severely damaged or infected tooth from extraction, it also relieves the pressure, inflammation, and pain infected pulp tissue can cause. In addition, root canal therapy can prevent the spread of infection to other teeth and the surrounding tissues, which can lead to damage and even systemic health problems.
Who is a good candidate for root canal therapy?
For anyone experiencing dental pain or discomfort, it is essential to consult with our dentist as soon as possible to determine if root canal therapy is right for you. It is a safe and effective procedure that can help save damaged or infected teeth and alleviate oral infection.
