Root Canals

Root Canals in North York

Root canals are a form of endodontic treatment, meaning they deal with the tooth pulp that resides inside the tooth structure. Teeth with damage to or infections in the tooth pulp can be structurally preserved in the mouth when our experienced dentists provide a root canal procedure.

How Root Canals Work

The tooth pulp is made up of soft tissue inside the tooth roots (root canals), which includes blood vessels and nerves. The tooth pulp is essential when the teeth are developing. However, it is not essential after the teeth are fully erupted. When tooth pulp becomes infected due to bacteria entering the root canals of the teeth, the infected pulp can be removed to reduce pain and prevent the spread of the infection. The tooth remains in place as usual, staying secure and allowing patients to avoid restorative dental procedures.
