Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is often associated with pain, but this pain is actually due to the reason for the dental procedure, not the treatment itself.

The main causes are a tooth infection or crack that exposes the nerve of the tooth, which causes discomfort.

Common signs a tooth may require a root canal treatment:

  • Severe aching/throbbing pain when chewing or applying pressure
  • Sensitivity to heat or cold even after removing the temperature
  • Feeling of pain relief when drinking cold water
  • Tooth discoloration or darkening
  • Swelling around the gum line
  • A pimple that forms on the gum

If you experience any symptoms of deep tooth decay or infection, please contact us right away. Without root canal therapy, a tooth may require extraction, which isn’t always an easy fix. However, root canals are easy compared to the cost and time needed for tooth replacement.

Our NW Calgary dentist helps make root canals more comfortable and pain-free and offers sedation dentistry if needed.

During the procedure, we remove the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth) and any decay or infection. We then fill the space to restore the tooth’s function, place a white dental filling, and create a custom crown to finalize your root canal.
