Root canal therapy in Calgary, Alberta

Over 14 million root canals are performed around the world every year and is one of the most common procedures we offer at the Richmond Dental clinic in Calgary. If you’re looking for a root canal therapy in Calgary, our experienced dentists do our best to make the process clear & simple, and with as little pain as possible.

In the center of your tooth, under the hard layers is what’s known as dental pulp. Pulp is a mixture of blood vessels and nerves that help strengthen the tooth. Trauma, decay, cracks, chips, or even repeated dental services can infect the pulp requiring a root canal therapy. The symptoms of a root canal are swelling of the tooth, pain in both the tooth and gums, and sensitivity to temperature. While you may not require an emergency dentist, the earlier you can come in for an assessment, the better we can treat the ailment.

Often times, when detected early, our dental clinic in Calgary will recommend a non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. In approximately ninety percent of cases, the injured pulp is removed, the tooth is cleaned, and sealed and you would not require any surgery. You will be informed at the consultation and following the initial procedure what the chances of success are so you can make an informed decision on how to best proceed. Our dentists will use a local anesthetic for this procedure to reduce any pain and eliminate discomfort. You’ll be back to your normal routine in no time.

Depending on the state of the tooth, root canal therapy can be inexpensive. Following the non surgical treatment, depending on the state of the tooth, you may need some cosmetic dentistry to help which may include an implant restoration. It is rare for our endodontic patients to have any complications post surgery. If any problem does arise, we are available, be it an emergency or not, to respond and consult with you.

Our Richmond Dental dentists will recommend root canal therapy as a way to save teeth that have received damage to their dental pulp and nerve.
