Root Canal Therapy in Calgary, Alberta

Your teeth’s roots are important for keeping your teeth healthy and strong. This is because the roots supply your teeth with nourishment and nerves. However, if the roots become damaged, it can lead to problems for the tooth, and even cause it to die.

This occurs when the dental pulp, situated inside the chamber of the root canal, becomes infected or damaged. This can cause a number of painful symptoms including:

  • Excruciating pain when drinking hot or cold liquids
  • Difficulty with chewing due to pain
  • Abscessing of the tooth
  • Swollen gums
  • Pain in the ears, jaw or head

To prevent this from happening, a root canal may need to be performed to ensure that your teeth are completely healthy. This procedure involves removing the decayed dental pulp from the tooth and cleaning the inner chamber to eliminate the source of the problem. Once it is thoroughly cleaned, the inner chamber is refilled with a biocompatible filling material before the tooth is resealed. We recommend placing a crown on top of the tooth to strengthen and protect its structure.

Before performing any root canal therapy, we will perform a complete examination of your mouth to determine if the dental pulp is infected. This includes using digital x-rays to get a complete in-depth look of your teeth and bone tissues. If a root canal is needed, we will perform it with an anesthesia and sedation to ensure your complete comfort.
