Root Canal Therapy In Wetaskiwin

What is a Root Canal?

Each one of your teeth contains a pulp chamber with living connective tissue. A healthy pulp chamber keeps your tooth functioning and comfortable. But when the pulp chamber becomes infected, this infection can affect the nerves that travel from the pulp chamber down your tooth roots and cause a serious, chronic toothache.

If an infected pulp chamber isn’t treated, this infection can travel to your bloodstream and cause serious problems. The infection could also spread to your other teeth if left unchecked.

A root canal, or root canal therapy, is a procedure where the infection in a pulp chamber is cleaned out and protected from future infection using a dental crown. Before root canal therapy was available, teeth that reached this level of infection had to be extracted. Using root canal therapy, your dentist can save your teeth and help your smile last longer.

Some signs that you may require a root canal include:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Tooth discoloration or darkening
  • Sensitivity to cold and heat
  • Pain or discomfort when you bite down on something

If you experience these symptoms, you may require a root canal. Call us immediately in Wetaskiwin if your tooth pain is severe, or you have another reason to suspect that a pulp chamber has become infected.

The Root Canal Therapy Procedure

  • When you come into our office for a root canal, Dr. Mahoney will begin by removing the infected tooth pulp from your tooth.
  • Once the infected tissue has been removed, Dr. Mahoney will clean and disinfect the tooth to protect you from future infection.
  • After the tooth has been cleaned and disinfected, Dr. Mahoney will protect your tooth by placing a beautiful porcelain crown.
  • For anxious patients, oral conscious sedation is available.

Our Wetaskiwin practice near Leduc and Camrose can perform standard root canals as well as back molar root canals. To find out more about root canal therapy, call us today! We would be happy to answer any questions you might have and to provide you with meaningful relief for your toothache.
