Home / Services / Root Canal Calgary NW

Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is done to protect the calcified tissues of the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, the blood supply to the tooth may be lost, and the pulp may die. This causes increased blood flow and pressure in the tooth causing severe pain that is relieved through Root Canal Treatment. At Expressions Dental™ clinic, our dentists provide Root Canal in Calgary NW and try to repair the infected root of a tooth by removing the infected dental pulp. This may have been caused by decay, injury, or gum disease.

Symptoms of Pulpal Nerve Damage:

  • Pain in tooth while biting or chewing food
  • Swelling around the tooth
  • Over-sensitivity of teeth to hot or cold temperatures
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth

The above-stated symptoms can resemble other tooth problems as well. So come to us for a dental check-up where we will help determine the right course of treatment for you.

Calgary Root Canal Procedure:

Contrary to the belief that a root canal procedure is painful, it is a way to relieve you of a severe toothache. During the root canal treatment in Calgary NW, the unhealthy pulp is removed with flexible files, and the canals are cleaned to prepare them for filling. Once the tooth is free from internal decayed or infected content and pulp, the empty cavity is filled with a biocompatible material to seal the interior of the tooth against any further bacterial infection. After the inside of the tooth has been treated, it may be recommended to get a crown on the tooth to protect its remaining structure.

Why do you need Root Canal Treatment (RCT)?

Dentists at Expressions DentalTM initially examine your teeth and determine if extensive damage has been done to the nerve of the tooth due to bacteria or infection or trauma, and if the tooth is deemed to be restorable then we suggest you opt for Root Canal treatment.  Any delay in treatment can spread the infection to the jaw, deteriorating the jawbone and weakening the structure of your teeth, possibly causing loss of the tooth. This treatment can help to save your teeth and prevent you from losing function. At Expressions Dental™ clinic, we make every effort to restore the health of your smile.

How to care for a tooth after a Root Canal?

After you have completed Root Canal Treatment, you may find your tooth sensitive for a few days:

  •  Avoid biting down on hard or sticky foods
  • If you experience some pain or swelling for a few days or becomes more severe, you must contact your dentist as soon as possible

 

You must maintain excellent oral hygiene habits to prevent the need for further treatment. This includes brushing at least twice daily, avoiding sugary or acidic food and drink, flossing daily, avoid smoking and seeing your general dentists for regular cleanings.
