Don’t let the fear of root canal treatment stand in the way of saving your teeth
At Brantford North Dental, we are here to ensure your comfort and dental wellbeing. This includes root canal treatment which we perform on our patients on a regular basis.
What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment involves removing the damaged or diseased pulp of a tooth, which is the tissue inside of a tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves. The most common causes of pulp damage or death are:
- a cracked tooth
- a deep cavity
- an injury to a tooth
What Happens If A Necessary Root Canal Is Not Done?
Left untreated, pus can build up at the root tip of a tooth, forming what is called an abscess. An abscess can destroy the jawbone surrounding the tooth and cause severe pain and in more advanced and serious cases, can lead to serious illness and even death.
