Root Canal Therapy | Dentist in Burlington - Maple Mews Dental | Your toothache could be telling you something.

Maple Mews Dental Office in Burlington performs a variety of dental treatments to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. One of the common treatments we perform to save a tooth is root canal therapy. This procedure is performed when the dental pulp inside your tooth becomes severely decayed, infected or damaged. The pulp consists of blood vessels and nerves, which once decayed can give you extreme pain and discomfort. Once decayed far enough, the tooth itself might die and be lost. Once this happens we can place an implant or artificial tooth in its place.  At Maple Mews Dental , our goal is to save teeth, which can often be done by treating the tooth with a root canal, filling or building up the tooth and placing a dental crown when a tooth is badly broken down.

 

To save your tooth, the compromised dental pulp is removed and the inner area is refilled again. In the process of removing the dental pulp, we will smooth out the cavity and clean it thoroughly to prevent further bacteria buildup and decay. The tooth is then filled, capped and adjusted to fit best with the rest of your teeth. A crown (or dental cap) will then be placed over the restoration and fitted, giving you a brand new chewing surface that will last for a long time with proper care. This crown is placed on top of the tooth to protect it. During your root canal, you will be given anesthesia, so rest assure you will be completely comfortable. A root canal is the best way to ensure you will not suffer pain and discomfort or run the risk of tooth loss.
