If your tooth’s nerve chamber becomes infected by decay, or damaged by trauma, a root canal treatment is often the only way Dr. Caminschi, a Mississauga dentist, has to save your tooth. Inside the hard outer shell of each tooth is a specialized area called the pulp or nerve chamber. The pulp chamber contains a system of blood vessels, lymph vessels and nerves, the pulp, which enter from the bone through the root canals. This system provides nourishment for the cells within the tooth.
Dr. Caminschi can perform simple to complex root canals
In a root canal or endodontic treatment, Dr. Caminschi removes the damaged or infected pulp and replaces it with a special filler which helps maintain the remaining tooth structure. A crown or filling is usually recommended to restore and protect the tooth from further damage.
Some indications of the need for root canal treatment may be:
- Spontaneous pain or throbbing while biting.
- Sensitivity to hot and cold foods.
- Severe decay or an injury that creates an abscess (infection) in the bone.
