When a tooth may have suffered some trauma like a crack or developed deep decay, the root of a tooth may become infected. At Lord Dufferin, believe it is better to save a tooth, rather than extract one. If a tooth is badly damaged or infected, we will often recommend a root canal, in which the infected pulp of the root of a tooth is removed.
What Happens at an Appointment
A local anesthetic will be given to numb the area around the infected tooth. After the infection has been removed, the tooth is cleaned and sealed. We are happy to provide this service in office. With proper care, a root canal treatment can last a long time.
