Your NW Calgary choice for Root Canal Therapy!

Because your teeth are unable to heal themselves from disease or trauma to the nerve, root canal therapy is a critical treatment option in order to save teeth that are diseased, infected, fractured, or have become non-vital over time. Sarcee Dental Clinic is pleased to offer patients Root Canal therapy, a simple treatment that can save your natural teeth from extraction.

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal therapy is a procedure performed to save the tooth from extraction, when the pulp, or inner tissue of the tooth, becomes infected, diseased, or exposed. While teeth are usually protected with a hard layer of enamel, sometimes this layer becomes cracked or decayed, and decay-causing bacteria can gradually penetrate the tooth and build to an infection.

If left untreated, the bacteria can reach the innermost part of the tooth (the pulp), which can contribute to severe pain. Dental abscess and possible tooth loss could follow. Since teeth are unable to heal themselves after disease or trauma to the nerve, this can be a critical dental treatment to save your teeth.

What are some symptoms that could indicate you may require a root canal treatment?

  • Severe toothache or pain when chewing
  • Tooth pain that wakes you up from sleep
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Tender or swollen gums
  • Pimple on your gum
  • Tooth discolouration or darkening of the enamel
  • Pain and pressure in your teeth

Even if you have any of the above symptoms, the need for a root canal should be based on your dentist’s exam. At Sarcee Dental Clinic, we are here to provide diagnosis and treatment.

What is involved in a Root Canal Procedure?

The root canal procedure will start with your Dentist cleaning and shaping your root canals. The nerve and pulp are then removed, and the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. The root canal is then filled with a fine material in its place. Once the inside of the tooth has been treated, your tooth should be restored to a healthy appearance. While Root Canal Therapy can be an effective and safe treatment, there are situations when it is not an ideal treatment option, and the need for an extraction is unavoidable. In such cases, we will discuss your long-term options for replacing teeth. Contact us today so we can discuss whether root canal therapy is an option for you, and help you achieve your goal for optimum dental health.
