Root Canal Therapy in Ottawa
A root canal is a procedure in which the nerve of the tooth is removed. When the nerve becomes infected, removing it will save the tooth itself. A root canal is generally completed within one appointment. On occasion, it will be a two-appointment process. Your Trillium dentist will remove the nerve. He or she will then clean out the area to remove debris and bacteria. The root canal is filled with a sealer paste and a rubber compound. A filling is then placed into the access hole that the dentist drilled to get to the root. If the tooth is especially weak, there may be further restorative work done to reinforce it. The tooth is then typically covered with a crown or onlay to prevent it from future breakage.
