Root Canal Therapy

At North Ajax Dental, we offer root canal treatment to relieve dental pain as a result of inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. 

What is a root canal treatment and how does it work?

Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp—which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves—that extends down to the tooth’s root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth’s nerves die and, often, without endodontic treatment, the tooth dies as well. Root canals are designed to save such damaged teeth.

During the procedure, a small access opening is drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored inlay/onlay or crown.
