Root Canal Treatment
Stress-Free Root Canals in Cornwall, ON
Do you have a toothache that won’t quit? Or maybe you have a toothache that comes and goes but when it’s around, it hurts a lot. There are a lot of causes for toothache and a variety of treatments. But one treatment for a toothache is a root canal.
A root canal (or endodontic treatment) is a conservative alternative to removing and replacing a tooth that has suffered from internal infection.
In each of your teeth, root canals house a sensitive nerve, also called the tooth’s pulp. Should the nerve become damaged and infected, you’ll experience pain (toothache) as a result of pressure building inside the tooth.
Ultimately, the tooth will die and you will be susceptible to blood borne infection that could travel from your mouth through your body. For this reason, it is extremely important to remove the infected portion of the tooth.
Root canals are an excellent treatment for this issue among our patients from the Cornwall and Morrisburg, ON area!
Why would I need a root canal?
- If you have a toothache, you may need a root canal.
- If you have a deep cavity or decay, you may need a root canal.
- If your tooth is broken or damaged and there is a possibility of decay, you may need a root canal.

- If you have a rather large filling, you may need a root canal.
When root canal therapy is required, our team will maintain your comfort throughout the root canal procedure. During root canals, we have many patient amenities that will keep you comfortable, such as: complimentary paraffin hand wax, massage pads in the chairs, spa feet treatments, warm blankets, hot towels after appointments and virtual vision glasses for TV.
For the root canals procedure, Cornwall dentist Dr. Deneka will remove the infection and fill your tooth with an inert substance. Root canals can make your toothache disappear!
After a root canal treatment, we will suggest that you have us place a dental crown on the tooth to make it structurally more solid. While the original tooth will no longer be living, it will remain safely intact to serve you well and preserve your bite.
