Root Canal Treatment At Your Local Calgary Dentist
How do you know when you may need a root canal?
You’ll most likely notice the need for a root canal right away, as your tooth (or teeth) will be causing you aches and pain. During your routine dental exam, your dentist will be able to diagnose any dental issues, including the need for a root canal. A root canal is not as scary as it sounds! Root canals help to relieve any tooth or jaw pain you are currently feeling.
Root canals restore the damaged tissue of your tooth, which can be caused by extensive decay, tooth trauma, or gum disease. A tooth with damaged nerve tissue requires immediate attention. As a result of a completed root canal, your tooth will feel noticeably healthier and stronger. We make it our goal to ensure that the root canal procedure is as comfortable for you as possible! We’re here to help eliminate the pain and make sure your teeth are healthy and fully restored.
Look out for these signs of tooth decay, which may indicate the need for a root canal:
- Headaches and discomfort in the jaw, ears, and neck
- A change in color of your teeth
- Gums looking swollen
- Increased sensitivity to food and drinks that are hot or cold
- Swollen jaw
If you notice any of the above dental issues, it’s best to contact us right away so we can assess your situation. As dental professionals, we may even be able to detect signs of decay before the pain occurs. When it comes to your health, early detection makes all the difference. It’s best to contact us sooner than later, and we will get your teeth back to full function right away.
