Root Canal Treatment In Edmonton Isn’t So Bad
Although countless successful root canals have been completed throughout the world, I still hear patients say, “Wow, is that it?!” They just can’t believe how smoothly their procedure went. This is because the pain associated with root canal treatment usually occurs pre-treatment – not from the treatment itself.
At Mak Dental, our team has performed many root canal treatments in Edmonton since 1987. The number most likely exceeds thousands. So, you really can feel good about coming to us for a root canal, should you require one.
Why are root canal treatments in Edmonton necessary?
Most people don’t think of teeth as living tissue, but they actually are! Each tooth contains channels (root canals) that extend from the crown (the protective covering) to the roots. They house nerves and blood vessels that transport vital nutrition your tooth requires to stay healthy.
When teeth become infected, badly decayed, or damaged due to an injury or blow, root canal treatment may be required to eliminate the risk of swelling, abscess, or the spread of infection.
With our knowledge, skills, and technology we can remove the infected pulp, clean and fill the empty channel, and save the tooth. The treated tooth functions normally, although a crown is usually required to protect the damaged tooth from fracture or improve the aesthetics should the tooth discolour after treatment.
After your first appointment, you’ll experience the wonderful relief that root canal treatment provides, and take great comfort knowing that this tooth will be free of pain – for good!
After your treatment, we’ll help you keep your regular checkups, so we can proactively detect concerns early on, saving you time, effort, money … and your beautiful smile!
If, for any reason, you experience sudden pain in your tooth, don’t ignore it – call us immediately at Mak Dental, your dentist in Edmonton. We want to do everything we can to preserve your tooth, with minimally invasive techniques and warm, friendly, compassionate care.Root Canal Treatment Edmonton
