Root Canal Therapy London, Ontario

Our Dentist In London, Ontario Can Alleviate Your Pain With Root Canal Treatment
Don’t wait. If you’re experiencing pain, contact us right away before the infection has a chance to spread.
Are You Experiencing Tooth Pain?
Did you know that our teeth contain three layers? The first layer is enamel, the second is dentin, and the third is dental pulp; the innermost layer contains blood vessels, nerve tissue, and connective tissue. Decay can reach this third layer of the tooth structure and can cause sensitivity, pain, swollen gums, and tooth discolouration. If left untreated, the infection can continue to spread into your bloodstream. It’s extremely important to address tooth decay early, not only to protect the tooth, but also to prevent it from reaching the pulp chamber. If it has reached the pulp, you’ll need a root canal, also termed endodontic treatment.
Root Canal Treatment In London to Help Save Patients’ Natural Teeth
By using root canal treatment, our dental clinic in London can help relieve you of pain, prevent potential tooth loss, prevent further damage, and restore a tooth’s appearance with a dental crown. Root canal treatment is generally given a bad reputation, but the procedure is actually quite simple and will alleviate pain. When you come into our dental centre for treatment, our team will go over the entire procedure with you before beginning to ensure you understand and are comfortable with it while also answering all of your questions. Once the bacteria from the infected root is removed, your tooth will be restored with a crown; a natural-looking dental restoration.

What To Expect During A Root Canal Procedure

The entire root canal procedure might take more than one appointment depending on the severity of the infection. When you come in for your appointment, we will evaluate your oral health and determine how long it will take as well as the best way to save your natural teeth.


The first step in your treatment will be to take X-rays to help us determine where the infection is. A local anesthetic will be given to numb the area.

Pulp Chamber & Root Is Cleaned

Small instruments help the dentist access the pulp chamber. After the infected pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are shaped using special files to make room for a filling.

Temporary Filling

A temporary filling will be used inside of the tooth to seal and protect it until you're ready for the placement of a dental crown. Crowns are custom-made and help restore your tooth's strength and appearance.


We will provide you with aftercare instructions that should be followed closely to ensure the infection is managed and your tooth and dental crown are properly healed.

We Offer Various Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Teeth that are severely decayed may need to be completely removed, but even so, there are restoration options available that we will go over with you.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can replace a tooth that's been badly damaged or removed. They can also be made from composite resin or porcelain and will look completely natural.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is exactly what it sounds like - a tiny bridge of teeth! A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth and is affixed to surrounding healthy teeth.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are often made from porcelain and are used to replace a whole tooth, typically the ones at the front to improve the appearance of them.


After a root canal, dentures may be used if adjacent teeth are missing or extracted. They restore function and aesthetics, ensuring effective chewing and a natural appearance. Properly fitted dentures also help in distributing bite forces, protecting the treated tooth and preserving overall oral health and comfort.

Dental Fillings

If the roots of your tooth aren't infected, you will not need a root canal. A cavity is still decay, but not as severe and can usually just be fixed with a dental filling. These are made from white-composite resin materials that are durable and natural-looking and will protect the tooth from further damage.

Benefits of Root Canals In London
Once the procedure is completed, the pain is relieved, and the tooth can function normally again. Plus, depending on your specific case and the severity of the infected tooth, a root canal allows the natural tooth to be saved. This helps maintain the natural structure of the mouth and prevents further tooth loss. It will also prevent infection from spreading to other teeth or your body. Ultimately, root canal therapy in London will help to maintain overall oral health by addressing the source of the infection and preventing it from causing further damage. With proper treatment, you’ll benefit from a root canal indefinitely.
