Root Canals in Calgary, Alberta - Westhill Dental Centre
When a tooth nerve (pulp) becomes inflamed or infected, it can start to cause a very intense pain. If the infection continues, the puss can start to dissolve and eat away the bone. Once the nerve begins to die, the only options are to do nothing and let a toothache get worse, extract the tooth or save it with a root canal. A root canal removes the infected nerve, disinfects that area, and places a biocompatible synthetic nerve in its' place. Essentially a filling for the inside of your tooth.
Only a dentist can determine if the nerve has reached the point of being infected. Research shows the longer a person waits, the less predictable saving the tooth can be. Call or email now to schedule your emergency appointment.
