Root Canal Therapy
Proper root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, can help you save your natural teeth! When your teeth’s nerves have become infected because of the presence of bacteria, root canal therapy could be the solution! Root canal therapy involves removing infected oral tissue and nerves and replacing them with sturdy, long-lasting filling that restores your tooth’s form and its ability to bite.
A root canal is often performed in order to save a tooth, to remove pain or stop an infection in the tooth nerve.
Every tooth consists of 3 different layers. The outer layer, the enamel, is the hardest. The second layer is dentin. The third layer is pulp, which is the cavernous space where each tooth’s live tissue and nerve are located. If the pulp is exposed to the outside for any reason (usually because of large cavities or fractures), the tissue will become contaminated and eventually infected.
Root canal treatment is the name of the process in which infected, dead tissue is removed from your tooth’s pulp space. Your dentist will then disinfect the area and seal it with special materials. These days, root canal treatments are done with highly advanced technology, making them quicker, easier and more comfortable than ever before.
You can rest assured that the dental team from False Creek Dental Centre uses the latest practices and equipment to ensure your root canal therapy is as pain-free and as comfortable as possible. At False Creek Dental Centre, root canal therapy is nothing to fear!
