Extractions (Root Canal)
The procedure is painless when done properly and can help salvage teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted.
In the centre of each tooth lies blood vessels and nerve tissues, collectively know as pulp. Pulp is responsible for assisting the tooth to grow. This pulp extends into the roots of each tooth through a narrow central canal; hence, the term "root canal". But if the pulp becomes infected, usually due to an untreated cavity in the tooth, the root will eventually deteriorate, causing the loss of the entire tooth.
Before that happens, Dr. Steve Colomby and Dr. Jordon Lazare, dentists at Springfarm Dental can remove the pulp, clean the infected canal, replace the pulp with inert filler, and save the tooth roots. In most cases, the treated tooth will have to be sealed with a crown.
