Endodontics Services

The most common endodontics procedure is root canal therapy. It allows you to keep your natural tooth while removing infection, pain and inflammation so you can get back to your regular activities. With good care, a root canal-treated tooth can last a lifetime without issues.

Root canal treatments often get a bad rep! Where dental nerve damage can cause pain, a root canal’s aim is to remove the source of the infection and pain. Treatment in our endodontics in Calgary can be performed as painlessly as any other dental procedure and sometimes, it is the only way to save a tooth and prevent the need for an extraction.

Some patients shy away from root canal treatment for fear that it will be painful. The truth is most patients feel no pain during the procedure, and afterwards, they walk away with their natural tooth still intact and functioning.

Through endodontic treatment at our NW Calgary dental clinic, you can retain your natural smile and get back to doing the things you enjoy most.

Let us help you get out of pain and keep your natural teeth!

A root canal treatment also referred to as endodontic therapy, is a procedure that involves removing infected/injured tissue, also known as the pulp, inside the crown and roots of your tooth.

Root Canal Treatments (RCT)

Once the infected/injured tissue is completely removed from within the tooth, it is disinfected, cleaned, and filled with a natural rubber-like material also known as gutta-percha. The gutta-percha helps the roots maintain their shape as once the infected/injured tissue is removed the roots and crown of your teeth become hollow. Once the tooth is filled with gutta-percha, a permanent filling is placed to close the opening.

Endodontics therapy is recommended by your dentist because they would like to save your tooth. Typically, when a tooth is infected, your dentist may provide you with the option to extract it, however, extractions can leave gaps in your smile, and teeth that do not have an opposing tooth on top may super-erupt (they drop/rise higher than the rest of the teeth) or may start to tilt. To preserve your smile and retain the tooth structure root canal treatment may be recommended.

Root Canal RETreatments

Sometimes root canal-treated teeth might not heal properly and can become painful or have a new asymptomatic infection around the tooth. If your tooth failed to heal after root canal treatment you have an option to save the tooth and retreat the root canals. The root canal retreatment procedure involves the removal of old filling, cleaning root canals, and re-packing with new material. If your tooth has a crown, it does not always need to replace the crown. The procedure might be done through the crown.
