We offer endodontic procedures, such as root canal therapy to our dental patients in the Windsor and Belle River communities.
Endodontics aims to provide treatments to solve problems related to the soft inner pulp of a tooth.
Root canal therapy is the most commonly performed procedure among all endodontic treatment procedures. Root canal therapy can help to preserve the tooth and also protect the jawbone when the inner pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed.The reasons why your tooth may become irritated are deep decay, big fillings, and trauma to the tooth, a chipped tooth or even repeated dental work.
When the nerves inside the tooth pulp die, the tooth dentin and enamel can no longer receive organic nutrients and moisture. The inflamed tissue surrounding the tooth can cause toothache and infection and can damage the bones around the teeth.
Our procedure takes place in four steps.
First, We study the x-ray of the infected tooth and then administers a local anesthetic.
Then, we remove the inflamed nerve tissue through an opening in the crown of the tooth. The root canal is cleaned properly so that no debris or bacteria is left behind. This helps to minimize repeat infection.
In the second step of the root canal procedure, we seal off the cleaned root canal cavity. This is to prevent fluids and bacteria from entering the cavity.
In the third step, we fill the root canal with gutta-percha and adhesive cement mixture.
In the fourth and final step,we place a crown on the sealed tooth which allows the tooth to function normally.
