Root Canal Therapy in Burlington ON
A root canal therapy is a preventive dental treatment that is performed to save a tooth from possibly dying. The main purpose of a root canal therapy is to remove the dying dental pulp within the tooth and to restore the tooth to full strength and health. During a root canal surgery, special drilling tools are used to access the infected dental pulp inside of the tooth. The infected pulp and tissues are taken out and the inner pulp chamber is thoroughly cleaned. Dental filling material is put into the inner chamber and bonded to the tooth. Finally, a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored dental crowns, inlay / onlay seals the tooth to protect it from further damage.
Our root canal treatments are performed with an anesthetic so you can rest assured that you won't feel a thing. In fact, most of our patients are surprised at how little discomfort they felt during the procedure.

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, porcelain, or tooth-colored inlay/onlay or dental crown.
