Root Canal Treatment in Edmonton

Why a Root Canal?

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. The following symptoms are signs you have a tooth abscess:

What is a Root Canal?

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. After the procedure, we will advise patients on how to manage any discomfort and how to take care of their disinfected tooth.

What Should I Do?

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.
