Root Canal Therapy in Sherwood Park

Endodontic Treatment At Acacia Dental Centre 

Patients requiring endodontic treatment, commonly referred to as Root Canal Therapy, have been diagnosed with an infection in the soft dental pulp that lies within the roots of the tooth.  An infection in the pulp can be extremely painful; if left untreated for any length of time that infection can progress into an abscess and further complications for surrounding tissue.  Treatment for such an infection requires removal of the infected or injured pulp from the tooth, and if caught early enough, the tooth itself can usually remain in the jaw.  Once the pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned, sterilised and then completely sealed with a filling material to prevent further infection.  Most dentists recommend crowning the tooth that has undergone root canal therapy to reinforce the compromised tooth.  Often, even a severely infected or damaged tooth can be saved from extraction with root canal therapy.  

Root Canal Therapy

Some of the more common reasons for root canal therapy being required include advanced tooth decay, abscesses as a result of decay, recent dental trauma or previous trauma that didn’t require treatment at the time.  Simple root canal therapy may be performed in a single visit but most often will require multiple visits to our office.  Teeth have several roots and it is very important that each one be thoroughly cleaned and all pulp removed to prevent re-infection at a later date.  In some cases you may be required to start off your root canal treatment with antibiotics to treat an abscess or tooth infection before we even start on the tooth itself.  Dental x-rays will be used to see the whole tooth and surrounding structures and assist with a full diagnosis.

If you suspect you may have a tooth infection, or are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your mouth, come see us at Acacia Dental Centre in Sherwood Park.  Don’t delay hoping the pain will go away, being seen as soon as possible for any dental issue ensures we have the best chance to prevent any further damage to your teeth and gums.  All dental services provided by a general dentist.
