Root canal treatment in Montreal
Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, is commonly recommended in cases of deep tooth decay that has reached the pulp of the tooth. This treatment is often considered when the nerve of a tooth is infected or suffers from irreversible inflammation (pulpitis). Root canal treatment may be prescribed if a tooth becomes necrotic or suffers a severe fracture as a result of dental trauma.

How do I know if I need a root canal?
When bacteria enters the inner pulp of the tooth due to dental cavities, cracks or defective fillings, the contaminated pulp may need to be removed. Following this, the canals must be cleaned and disinfected before they are sealed. Root canal treatment is a procedure that involves cleaning an infected, damaged or necrotic pulp cavity.
This procedure makes it possible to preserve a severely damaged or infected tooth rather than proceed with a tooth extraction. In cases of dental abscesses, quick treatment is important to prevent the spread of bacteria and limit the pain experienced.
What is the root canal procedure?
There are a few steps involved in a root canal treatment. First, the root canal specialist administers a local anesthetic to ensure a pain-free procedure. Then, a small opening made (the access cavity) is made in the tooth to access the pulp. The endodontist then removes the pulp with a precision instrument (pulpectomy).
Next, the endodontist or the dentist cleans, disinfects and seals the tooth canal with gutta-percha, which is a soft, flexible resin-based material. It is used primarily to fill tooth after a root canal procedure. The endodontist will then typically place a temporary restoration on the tooth before performing a final restoration to return the tooth to its former integrity. Depending on the case, the dentist will either place a permanent filling or recommend a dental crown.
How much does root canal treatment cost?
Root canal treatment can have varying costs depending on the number of teeth that need to be treated. The time required to remove the infected pulp and clean the tooth’s canal system can also vary since teeth have between one and four canals – in rare cases, even more!
Clinique Dentaire 1935 offers a variety of services for this treatment option, including infected pulp removal, thorough cleaning of the root canal system, and check-up appointments spread over multiple visits. This ensures that our patients receive the best possible care and that their teeth are healthy and infection-free.

Maintenance and postoperative follow-up of root canal treatment
Following a root canal, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene. It is also important to have regular check-ups with your dentist to ensure proper follow-up.
In any case, rest assured that your dentist will provide you with detailed information on the maintenance and follow-up care that is applicable to you. A dental examination may be necessary to ensure that your teeth are healing as expected.
