Ottawa & Kanata Root Canal Treatment to Prevent Tooth Loss

Root canal treatment has been around for decades but the treatment and technology have evolved considerably over recent years. The purpose of the procedure is to restore and preserve a tooth that would otherwise have been lost. If you need root canal treatment in Ottawa, turn to Dr. Assad and his experienced team at Kanata North Dental Office.

Contrary to some old misconceptions, the treatment takes just one or two sessions and includes little discomfort. The final result is a healthy tooth still firmly anchored in the bone. Moreover, patients appreciate the almost immediate pain relief and the disappearance of an infection or tooth abscess.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure that addresses a problem affecting the soft interior (or root canal) of a tooth. The root canal is the most interior part of a tooth which holds nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. When the root canal is damaged by deep decay or a crack in the tooth, the result is pain and eventually an infection or abscess.

With the new advances and techniques used by Kanata North Dental Office, root canal treatment is considerably more comfortable for patients, provides almost immediate pain relief, takes much less time and saves a tooth that would otherwise have been pulled.

Three Steps of Root Canal Treatment

There are only three steps involved in root canal treatment. The whole procedure takes only one or two sessions, depending on the condition of the tooth.

The three steps are:

  • Anesthetizing the tooth and accessing the roots
  • Removing damaged tissue and shaping the root canal
  • Packing the roots with a neutral rubberized material
