Root Canal In Ottawa

What is a Root Canal procedure?

A root canal is a type of dental treatment performed on teeth that have become damaged or infected. Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

Do I need a Root Canal treatment?

Root canals are needed for a cracked tooth from injury or genetics, a deep cavity, or issues from a previous filling. Patients generally need a root canal when they notice their teeth are sensitive, particularly to hot and cold sensations.

There are a few symptoms that mean you might need a root canal treatment:

Severe pain while chewing or biting

Pimples on the gums

A chipped or cracked tooth

Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after the sensation has been removed

Swollen or tender gums

Deep decay or darkening of the gums
