Root canal treatment is a dental procedure designed to save a damaged or infected tooth. At 57 Dental and Implant Centre, our team of highly skilled dental professionals is committed to helping you maintain optimal oral health. One way we can achieve this goal is by providing effective root canal treatment to our patients.
