Root Canal Therapy in Newmarket

If you are experiencing tooth pains that are affecting your daily routine, you may need a root canal to save the tooth. Our Newmarket dentist can perform root canal treatments for our patients to relieve pain and discomfort to resume a normal lifestyle.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

The "pulp", located in the core of your tooth, can become inflamed and irritated. This can lead to tooth pains that can worsen and start impacting your daily lifestyle and overall health. When this happens, our Newmarket dentists perform root canal therapy to treat it. Left unattended, an infected pulp can cause loss of teeth, pain, swelling, or an abscess. Undergoing root canal therapy at Newmarket Dental is a necessary step for infection, and it is the best option to avoid the need for teeth extraction. Our Newmarket dental team can perform root canal therapy to maintain the health and structure of your natural tooth without the need for dentures or implants as a replacement, leaving you looking and feeling your best.

Root Canal Procedure

At Newmarket Dental, root canal treatment starts by clearing out damaged areas of the tooth under local anesthetic. Once the pulp chamber has been breached, more anesthetics may be injected to relieve any further pain. All the tissues within the tooth will be removed and the inside will be disinfected. The root canals will be filled with a rubber-like material, the pulp chamber is filled with cotton, and a temporary filling is used to seal the opening. During the next visit at Newmarket Dental, the temporary filling will be replaced with a core buildup and the tooth is finished with a filling or a crown.
