Root Canal Treatment in Calgary NW

What is Root Canal Treatment ?

Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is a procedure 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 infection/inflammation causes increased blood flow and pressure in the tooth, causing severe pain that can be relieved through Root Canal Treatment. At Expressions Dental™ clinic, our dentists provide Root Canal Treatment in Calgary NW and try to repair the infected root of a tooth by removing the infected dental pulp. This infection may have been caused by decay, injury, or gum disease. The symptoms of pulpal nerve damage include:

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

These symptoms can also be associated with other dental issues too. Therefore, for all your treatment options, come down to Expressions Dental and get a check-up done.

What is the procedure for Endodontic therapy?

When the pulp of a tooth is inflamed or infected, endodontic therapy is indicated. Contrary to the belief that root canal treatment is a painful procedure, modern equipment and techniques have made the process more comfortable for the patient. When undergoing root canal treatment at Expressions Dental 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)?

 

Our general dentists at Expressions DentalTM Calgary, will initially examine your tooth and determine if there’s extensive damage 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 the treatment can spread the infection to the jaw, deteriorating the jawbone and weakening the structure of your teeth, possibly causing loss of the tooth. Root Canal 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.

What measures should be taken post Root Canal Treatment?

 

Post Root Canal Treatment, you may find your tooth to be sensitive for a few days. Some precautions should be taken, like avoiding biting down on hard and sticky foods. If your pain doesn’t subside or it becomes severe, consult your dentist as soon as possible.
You should maintain excellent oral hygiene habits to prevent the need for further treatment. This routine should include brushing at least twice daily, avoiding sugary or acidic food and drink, flossing daily, avoid smoking and seeing your dentists for regular check-ups and cleanings.
