Our root canal in Edmonton will not only help you achieve immediate relief from your pain, but it will restore the health of your teeth.

Root canals become necessary when the pulp of a damaged tooth becomes severely infected. This generally happens when an opening forms in a tooth, usually from multiple fillings or a chip, exposing the softer center to food and bacteria. The tooth becomes infected, leading to an abscess that can threaten other teeth, as well as the jaw and the gums.
A root canal is a procedure that cleans out a bacterial infection of a tooth, preserving the natural tooth. Our Edmonton dentists will administer an anesthetic to block pain and then drill into the problem tooth to remove the infected tissue. A filling and crown will be used to reseal the tooth.
The best way to treat an abscess is never to have one at all. Preventative care, like correct hygiene and proper protection of the teeth, can save time, pain, and money.
But what if you already need a root canal? In Edmonton, our general dental practitioners can diagnose and treat an abscess with a root canal if necessary. These doctors will do their best to reduce the pain and hassle of a root canal, while helping you maintain your future dental health.
