At Fort Rouge Dental Group in Winnipeg, our dentists may recommend a root canal to help repair a severely damaged or infected tooth.
What is a root canal?
A root canal often called root canal therapy, is a treatment that involves the removal of the pulp from the inside of an inflamed, infected or dead tooth to help prevent it from becoming a source of further infection.
Why would I need a root canal?
A root canal may be recommend to restore a tooth with an inner soft-tissue infection. This type of infection cannot clear up on its own and to prevent it from spreading, a root canal may be necessary to save the tooth from extraction.
