Root Canals, Toronto Dentist

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased material (blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues) from the interior of a damaged tooth. Without a root canal, damaged teeth will die and require extraction. 

Your dentist will begin by removing the diseased tissue from the tooth. They will then clean and disinfect the inner chamber and fill it with medicated material to prevent infection. To end the procedure, the tooth is generally capped with a dental restoration, such as a dental crown. 

Our Board-Certified Endodontist

Our endodontist, Dr. Ryan Margel, has undergone additional education and training concerning injuries and disease of the soft tissues within the tooth.

Endodontists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of damage or disease that impacts the interior of a tooth focusing on the root canals, pulp chamber, and root of a tooth.

Why a Root Canal May Be Recommended

A root canal treatment helps relieve your symptoms and save your natural tooth. The procedure also limits the need for more extensive dental work in the future. 

By removing the decay and bacteria from the inner tooth, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and restore the healthy portion of the tooth.

Most patients who have root canals experience little discomfort or pain, and end up with a restored tooth. Teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
