Root Canals

Root Canals

If you are experiencing tooth pain, and our Scarborough dentists determine you need a root canal, don't worry. At Markham Steeles Dental Centre, we will take care of the infection and you!

What is a Root Canal?

A tooth that has an infection in the root canal may need a root canal procedure to prevent the tooth from being removed. The root canal procedure is done by our dentists using a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.

The dentist makes a hole in the tooth so they can access the root canal system and remove any infection or dead tissue from the tooth.

The area is then filled and sealed and a filling (either temporary or permanent depending on your treatment plan) is placed over the opening in the tooth.

After your root canal treatment, you may be a little sore. But by following the aftercare plan created for you by our team, you will soon be feeling much better.

We are happy to discuss the cost of a root canal with you - it's important to us that our patients understand the cost of their treatments upfront.
