Quality endodontic care in Ottawa
A root canal treatment might be necessary to a diseased tooth and to save it from extraction. For this intervention, you can trust your general dentist in Ottawa.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment: these words may sound like a long, painful and complicated dental procedure that should be left to a specialist. But that's not the case. Instead, it's a fairly routine procedure offered by the team at General Dentist Solutions, Ottawa's leading general dentistry practice. Whether it's a regular root canal or a retreatment, our dentist will be able to save a diseased tooth and allow it to perform its functions without risk.
What are the different
types of root canal treatments
Root canal treatment always has the same objective, which is to clean up diseased root canals in order to stop the associated pain and allow the tooth to stay in place. However, a distinction can be made between regular root canal treatment, which is done in the presence of a serious pulp infection, and root canal retreatment. The latter is done when a first attempt has not been successful and re-infection has occurred. Both procedures include similar manipulations: assessment, drilling of the tooth, cleaning of the canal, filling of the canal and final restoration of the tooth. Both are offered by Dr. Koniouchine at his general dental clinic in Gloucester.
Regular Root Canal Treatment
When the living center of a tooth (the pulp) is affected by bacterias, its viability is compromised. In order for it to remain in place and continue to perform its functions, a regular root canal treatment can be performed. This procedure helps to stop the initial infection.
Retreatment of the Root Canals
Sometimes, despite a root canal treatment, the infection persists or returns. At this point, retreatment is necessary. This is often the only way to eliminate the remaining sources of bacteria and thus preserve the diseased tooth.
