Visit Us in Calgary for Root Canals and More

Endodontics, which concerns the biology of the interior mouth, is commonly associated with the root canal, a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain. If you are experiencing serious tooth discomfort whenever you bite down, extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, persistent gum pimples, or discoloured teeth, you should book an appointment at one of our clinics in Calgary. Root canals are beneficial in that they relieve you of pain and allow you to keep your natural tooth.

What to Expect During a Root Canal

The entire process generally takes 2-3 visits to complete. The diseased pulp is removed and the hole is cleaned and refilled with a biocompatible material. A restoration is applied on top to protect the tooth and to prevent further instances of infection. With our sedation options, you will be able to relax as we carry out the procedure.

Apicoectomy

In the event that your root canal is not successful, an apicoectomy (endodontic surgery) may be performed. To ensure that all traces of the infection have been eliminated, the tip of the tooth’s root is removed and replaced with a new filling.

Retreatment

In some situations, the tooth that received the root canal fails to heal properly. This can be discovered months or even years following the initial procedure. In such cases, the tooth will have to be reopened and the crown, post, and core material removed to permit further work. A special microscope is required during the endodontist’s investigation. After a thorough cleaning, the canal is refilled and a new restoration is placed.
