About Root Canal Therapy

An end has come to having painful, fear-inducing root canals. At Cornerstone Dental Centre, our experienced dentists use the latest in analgesics and technology to complete root canals in an easy manner. Some soreness or tissue inflammation is likely to be experienced after the analgesics wear off but this can be controlled with non-prescription medication. Root Canal can be exposed to infection as a result of deep cavities or injuries.

Root Canal Can Cause Deep Cavities or Injuries

There is a soft tissue chamber right under the protective layers of enamel at the core of your teeth and it contains nerves, veins, arteries, and lymph vessels. Canals that lead to the root of the tooth are formed when each pulp chamber branches off at the top. The root canal gets exposed to bacterial infection in the case where you have a deep cavity, injury or tooth fracture. Pressure will be created within the tooth if infections are not treated and this can also result in increased blood flow, killing the pulp. Aside from causing severe pain, the tooth might be lost to the infection.

Allow Cornerstone Dental to Save Your Tooth

Your tooth can be saved when the infection is detected early. All you need to do is make that contact at the very first sign of any pain or soreness. In order to prevent further infection, we clean up the infected area, fill the canal and seal it up. If you notice other dental issues, we offer a variety of general dentistry procedures to manage your needs.
