Patients are usually terrified of the word Root Canal. But Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre, in Scarborough, is well known for his affordable, best dental office award winner, painless, quick, and single visit Root Canal Treatments, making it a comfortable and stress-free experience for his patients.
The term “Root Canal” is not a treatment, but an inner part of the tooth between the pulp and the tooth roots. It contains blood vessels, nerves, and other cells. Due to various reasons such as tooth decay or a cavity, the pulp can get exposed and in turn, become infected. Such conditions will cause severe pain and require Root Canal Treatment to prevent it from worsening. During a root canal treatment, the pulp is removed along with the blood vessels and the nerve tissues from the tooth, and the pulp chamber is sealed to prevent any bacteria from entering.
The basic procedure will see a dentist applying anesthetics to the tooth, applying a Dental Dam (A dental dam or Rubber Dam, 6-inch square sheet, usually latex or nitrile, used in dentistry to isolate the operative site (one or more teeth) from the rest of the mouth, before making an opening in the tooth and removing all the decayed/diseased/infected tooth structure to reach the pulp along with all of the dead tissue. After disinfecting the root canal, the interior is filled in and the tooth is capped with a crown to prevent further infections.
