Root Canal Therapy in Aldershot, Ontario
Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves that extends down to the tooth’s root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth’s nerves die and, often, without Root canal therapy, the tooth dies as well. Root canal therapy is designed to save such damaged teeth.
During the procedure, a gap is drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, tooth-colored or porcelain inlay/onlay or dental crown.
