Endodontics or

Root Canal Treatment

Endodontics involves treating the nerve that is located inside the tooth and its roots. Root canal treatments are part of endodontics. This treatment becomes necessary when the dental pulp is affected by a cavity or trauma or when it undergoes necrosis (dies). It can also be used for preventive purposes after certain restorations are performed.

Recommendations

Generally, if we recommend endodontics in Brossard, you already experience pain. This ache comes from the inflammation around the tooth itself.

The treatment aims to precisely get rid of the pain; you will quickly feel relieved after the procedure. Depending on the case, it is possible that we prescribe you ant-inflammatories to help ease the postoperative discomfort.

Many patients simply ask to extract the tooth to avoid the procedure. However, it is necessary to understand that the extraction is possible, but only as a last resort.

For several reasons, it is recommended to preserve the tooth: the remaining teeth will tend to move to fill the hole (even in adulthood), which can lead to crooked teeth or even jaw deformation.

Nonetheless, this can be prevented with the installation of an implant,
but this procedure entails higher costs than root canal treatment in Brossard.

Depending on your situation, more than one visit might be necessary: before the procedure, the day of the traitement, and following the procedure to evaluate the outcome. In some rare cases, a second root canal treatment might be needed.
