Endodontics in Calgary

When the inner tissue of a tooth (the pulp) is exposed through injury or decay, it becomes vulnerable to infection. The infection can spread from the tooth to the surrounding tissues, which will eventually weaken the tooth and cause it to be lost.

Root canal treatment preserves a damaged tooth by removing the pulp and preventing infection.

How does root canal treatment work?

To remove the pulp, we drill a tiny hole in the tooth being treated. The pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is sanitized to prevent infection. Once the root canal is complete, we seal the tooth with a filling. Then the tooth can be restored and protected with a dental crown.

Aren’t root canals painful?

Thanks to modern technology, root canal therapy is no more painful than having a tooth filled. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic. Many patients experience little to no pain during or after root canal treatment.

If you’ve damaged a tooth, or if you’re suffering from severe toothache, call our office to make an appointment.
