Root Canal in Toronto, ON

Root Canal in Toronto, ON

Root canal treatments or endodontic procedures are usually referred to as root canals by many people. At Dental Art on Harbord in Toronto, ON, we’d like to point out that there’s a difference in the meaning of the terms. A root canal is the part of the tooth containing the pulp and, therefore, the nerves and vessels. Root canal treatments or endodontic treatments in Toronto, ON, refer to procedures done to treat root canal issues.

At Dental Art on Harbord, our dentists are Specialists in Endodontics. We experts at dealing with root canal problems. They see them daily and have the experience and knowledge to provide you with the care that you deserve.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment in Toronto, ON, usually takes one to two visits, and each visit lasts about an hour and a half. We decide how many visits you’ll have to come in based on the condition of your root canal. Our main aim is to remove the pulp and apply a filling to the resultant space.

We’ll have to gain access to the root first by creating an opening at the top of the tooth. Next, we’ll clean out the pulp and all the infected parts of the tooth. If we’re doing this over two visits, then we’ll apply a temporary filling then replace it with a permanent one on the second visit. On the other hand, if everything is happening in a single visit then we’ll go ahead and apply the permanent filling straightaway.

Root canal treatments in Toronto, ON, aren’t painful because we use local anesthesia to numb the affected area. You might feel some pressure during the procedure, but there won’t be any pain. If you feel any pain, then let us know, but that shouldn’t happen.

After the Procedure

The tooth that got the treatment might be a little sensitive for a couple of days. It’s often a good idea to chew on the other side until that sensitivity fades away. You might have slight discomfort too. If the discomfort and sensitivity persist or are intolerable, then give us a call or visit us so we can figure out what the problem is.
