Our Pickering dentists perform routine root canals to relieve pain or symptoms caused by a damaged tooth nerve, and to help repair a tooth's function.
A root canal is typically a safe and effective dental procedure during which your dentist removes damaged pulp from the interior of the tooth, preventing the need for an extraction.
During a root canal procedure, your dentist will remove the damaged pulp of your tooth, including blood vessels and nerves.
Next, they will thoroughly clean the space and fill it with medicated dental materials.
