Root Canal & Periodontal Treatment
If you are experiencing exceptional tooth pain that is affecting your ability to chew food, drink water or even just talk, it is a sign that you are experiencing a deep infection in your tooth. At the dental clinic of Dr. Robert Berlin, we offer root canal treatments for Etobicoke patients. During this procedure, we painlessly remove the infected material from the root of your tooth and then seal the root and fill the tooth with a temporary or permanent restoration.
Periodontal Treatments to Maintain Healthy Gums
Our team is committed to maintaining healthy gums for our patients. People from throughout the Lakeshore communities come to us for our focus on periodontal health. Without healthy gums and supporting bones, our teeth are at risk for increased bleeding and disease. We provide careful evaluation of the gums and bone to determine if gum disease (periodontitis) is developing and we will recommend treatments as required.
Scaling To Remove Deposits Under The Gums
Periodontal disease will require will more than just cleaning of your teeth. Periodontal disease requires scaling, a process which removes hard deposits below the gum line. That is because periodontal disease is caused by hard calcium depots that build up under your gums and provide a space for bacteria to multiply. This process leads to deterioration of the supporting bones and inflammation of the gums. In order to treat this, we must scale below the gums in order to remove these deposits and allow your gums and bone to become healthier.
