Root Canal Toronto
The phrase "root canal" seems to strike fear in the heart of many a dental patient, and we can't say why it has developed this reputation. In actual fact, many patients find that having a root canal is a great relief in a painful situation. Having a need for root canal therapy is not something to wish for, but it is the underlying condition (an infection of the tooth's pulp that can cause swelling and pain) and not the treatment that is to be avoided. Well over 14 million root canals are performed each year, with a 90% rate of success. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for other costly procedures.
