Toronto Root Canal


When a cavity is left untreated, the bacteria causing the decay moves deeper into the tooth and close to, or into, the space where the nerve sits resulting in a serious dental infection. If decay is not too extensive and there is enough tooth to save, a root canal can be done to remove the infected nerve tissue while preserving the tooth.

A root canal involves removing the infected or dead nerve tissue, disinfecting the nerve space, and filling the root space. A crown is usually recommended after a root canal to prevent the tooth from fracturing over time.
