What Does a Root
Canal Involve?

When a significant amount of decay develops in the pulp and root of a tooth, it can cause the pulp to become inflamed or infected with bacteria. This can be caused by poor dental hygiene, an untreated cavity, or even an injury to the mouth. Without proper treatment from your dentist, the infection can worsen over time and require extraction.


Dental Emergency?

Our Carleton Place location offers same-day appointments for your emergencies. If you need a dentist near you to help you in a crisis, please do not hesitate — call us right away!


What Does a Root Canal

In order to save the tooth and prevent tooth loss, a root canal is needed to remove the infection from the pulp, root, and nerve. The dentist will work to clean out any bacteria from inside of the tooth, along with any dead tissue so that the surrounding healthy tissue can help to restore it. They will disinfect it with antibiotics, fill the empty root, and then seal up the area to prevent any decay from developing again.

Despite what many people think regarding root canals, modern technology has greatly improved and assisted in making it a more comfortable and expedited procedure, requiring usually only one or two visits to complete.

  • Discolouration of teeth
  • Painful to touch
  • Chipped or cracked area
  • Difficulty eating or drinking hot or cold items
