Root Canals

Save badly decayed or infected tooth at Spearmint Dental. A root canal is recommended for a tooth with a large cavity or extensive decay and infection.

The root canals are spaces that house the tooth roots. The canals are just below the center of the tooth containing the soft area called the pulp and the nerve. During a root canal treatment, the nerve, pulp and areas of decay are removed and the resulting cavity is cleaned and sealed.

The pulp needs to be removed if there is extensive tooth damage. If left untreated, bacteria multiplies inside the pulp, infecting the tooth roots and the soft tissues around the tooth. A root canal usually takes more than one visit. The procedure is usually performed by an endodontist. The final step of the procedure may involve further restoration, typically using a crown or a crown post to restore the tooth to full function and protect it from damage.

If you have questions about getting a root canal, don’t hesitate to call our Alberta dental office at 780-438-0045(South) or 780-481-3216(West). You may also fill out the appointment form.
