Root Canal Therapy & Treatment in Stouffville
Root canal therapy (also referred to as endodontic treatment) is when the inside nerve of a tooth is cleaned out and is replaced with a seal that prevents infection from getting back inside of the root.
When completing a root canal treatment we remove any bacteria, and organic fragments that were left behind by the breakdown of nerve tissue. Once this is completed, we fill the area and seal off the inside of the tooth so that bacteria can’t get back inside to cause more damage.
Once the root canal is completed, the tooth has lost its nerve tissue and can be prone to breakage and fissures; we suggest adding a crown in order to increase the strength of the tooth.
