Root canal treatments are available for Scarborough, ON area patients

At Esquire Dental Centres, Scarborough, ON area patients have access to a number of procedures that can be used in restoring the appearance, health, and functionality of the smile. When a tooth is diseased, infected, or damaged, it may require treatments such as root canal therapy.

Treatments For Damaged Teeth

There are several procedures which may be considered for damaged or diseased teeth. They include:

  • Placement of dental crowns
  • Root canal therapy
  • Permanent extraction and replacement

However, for many patients, root canal therapy is extremely helpful in addressing the problem at hand, and saving the natural tooth.

What Is A Root Canal Treatment?

Also called endodontic therapy, root canal treatments are used to remove the dental pulp from inside a tooth. This is done through a tiny hole in tooth structure. The dentist uses specialized instruments to clean the canals and disinfect them before sealing with a material called gutta percha. After the procedure, patients often have a dental crown placed. It provides an extra layer of strength and protection against further damage. This is a routine restoration used in other general dentistry situations.

Does It Hurt?

When patients hear of root canal therapy, the first word that comes to mind in pain. However, Drs. Ashraf, A. Mark, and Amir Awadalla use proper sedation and anesthetics for optimum patient comfort. Patients are relaxed and pain-free throughout treatment. If discomfort is experienced following the appointment, it can be addressed with over-the-counter pain medication as needed.
