Root Canal Treatments

Do you have a damaged tooth that causes you frequent pain and discomfort? Wish there was some way to stop the pain completely? With root canal treatment at My Dental Clinic in Calgary, you can! Your teeth contain blood vessels and nerves, when infected or damaged your tooth may become inflamed causing severe pain. A root canal can help relieve this discomfort, allowing you to continue living without every day pain.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is an extremely common dental procedure, over 14 million are performed every year. It can be one of the best ways to treat decayed, abscessed or severely infected teeth. If you suffer from a severely large cavity, extremely damaged tooth or show signs of an infection we may recommend root canal treatment. We can remove the diseased tissue and nerves inside the affected tooth, eliminating your pain and the infection.

Signs and symptoms that you may need root canal treatment may include:

  • Visible swelling/infection
  • Hot/cold sensitivity in teeth
  • Sensitivity to foods/beverages that are acidic
  • Painful or swollen gums
  • Extreme dental pain
  • Exposed tooth root

Left untreated, tooth decay and gum disease can cause inflammation of the nerve. This can put you at risk for losing your tooth and having to go through more invasive dental procedures to fix the problem.
