Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment (also known as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is needed when an injury or cavity reaches the inner part of the tooth called the pulp.
When pulp becomes infected, it can spread to the tooth root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess).
This can be very painful or completely free of symptoms.
Regular dental checkups ensure nothing is missed.
Symptoms that you may need root canal therapy include tooth sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, or a bad taste in your mouth.
Bowmanville Dental offers oral examinations and root canal therapy.
