Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy
When the pulp inside the tooth gets infected, it can spread to the tooth root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone. To treat the infection, we perform a root canal therapy which involves removing the infected pulp and refilling the inside of the tooth with a special compound. Symptoms of infected tooth pulp include excessive sensitivity to hot or cold foods/drinks, pain, swelling or a bad taste in your mouth. If you are experiencing any of these issues, don’t wait; book an appointment with North Oshawa Dental today.
When do I need a root canal?
Root canal treatment is a common dental procedure that many individuals will need to undergo at some point in their life. Here are some of the symptoms you should be aware of that could indicate you need root canal therapy:
- A chipped or cracked tooth
- Intense pain when biting or chewing food
- Swollen or tender gums, or pimples along the gums
- Greater sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks
- Deep decay or darkening of the gums
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
Today, a root canal is a relatively basic and straightforward procedure. Once we remove and replace the infected pulp, you no longer have to worry about having to undergo a tooth extraction, which would cause you greater pain and create cosmetic issues. In addition, having your tooth pulled and not replacing it with a dental implant can lead to a loss of bone density in your jaw.

Amazing place! I got technically two gifts just for signing up (one is a promo, but I think you might get the other one as a new patient). I’m very happy with the professionalism and knowledge of the staff. Also, when I went back to the place.. the dental hygienist welcomed me by name as I entered only after coming in ONCE prior. Such nice service. Highly recommend.
