Root Canal Treatment From The Dental Team

Root canal treatment can save teeth with extensive decay. Signs that you may need a root canal include severe pain, a chipped or cracked tooth, swollen gums, and sensitivity, but you need to consult a dentist. 

The Dental Team has 35 dentists, to meet your family’s dental needs in Milton, Mississauga, and Brampton, Ontario. Give us a call to talk about root canals or other dental procedures today.

How Root Canals Work

A root canal treatment restores your tooth so you can use it as usual. Here’s a step-by-step look at the process.

Prepping Your Mouth

The dentist numbs your mouth with local anesthesia, then uses a dental dam to isolate the tooth that needs the root canal treatment.

Cleaning the Roots

The dentist numbs your mouth with local anesthesia, then uses a dental dam to isolate the tooth that needs the root canal treatment.

Filling the Root Canals

The dentist fills the canals with a rubber-like material and seals them to keep bacteria out. 

Restoring the Tooth

The dentist ultimately restores the rest of the tooth by adding a filling or putting on a crown.


Most patients can return to their usual daily activities after root canal treatment, but you should expect to be numb for two to four hours after the procedure. We can answer your questions and talk more about root canal treatment when you contact our office.

Why You Need Root Canal Treatment

A root canal eliminates the pain from a damaged or decayed tooth. It also brings the following benefits:

Saving the Tooth

The alternative to a root canal is usually to extract the tooth. This disrupts your smile and can hurt your oral health. 

Protecting Other Teeth

Root canal treatment can help to maintain your natural bite and protect other teeth from excessive strain. 

Avoiding Expensive Long-Term Treatments

Extracting a tooth is usually much cheaper than root canal treatment, but in the long run, replacing the tooth with bridges, dentures, or implants is much more expensive.

Root canal treatment preserves the beauty of your smile and the functionality of your mouth, and we can help. The Dental Team has endodontic specialists who provide root canal treatment — set up an appointment today.
