Root canals are recommended for a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or injury.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt=Endodontics" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-endo.jpg"> <h2>How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>The root canals are spaces inside each of your teeth. They contain the pulp, which is a bundle of soft tissue and nerves. If the tooth is injured, the pulp could become infected. It’s important to treat the infection quickly because it can spread from the tooth to the surrounding tissues. During root canal treatment, the pulp and infected tissue is removed to prevent further infection. Once the root canal is complete, we clean and seal the tooth to protect it. Finally, we restore the tooth with a dental crown.</p> <h2>Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>Root canal treatment has a reputation for being painful, but with modern anesthetics and techniques the procedure is normally no more painful than getting a tooth filled.</p> <p>Book a dental exam with us if you experience any of the symptoms of a tooth infection, such as a sharp toothache or increased sensitivity to pressure, heat, or cold.</p></div> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 15:02:50 +0000 admin 39 at https://www.spearmintdental.com Orthodontics & Invisalign Treatment in Edmonton https://www.spearmintdental.com/services/orthodontics-invisalign-treatment-edmonton <span>Orthodontics &amp; Invisalign Treatment in Edmonton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span>Thu, 10/08/2020 - 09:55</span> <div><p>Orthodontic treatment can straighten your teeth, eliminate crowding and gaps, and correct bite misalignments to improve the health and appearance of your smile. We offer metal braces and Invisalign treatment to meet your individual needs.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-invis.jpg"> <h2>Metal Braces</h2> <p>Metal braces gradually realign your teeth through the use of wires, brackets, elastic bands, and springs. Treatment with braces usually takes approximately two years. Braces come in a variety of styles and colours to suit your tastes.</p> <h2>Invisalign Clear Aligners</h2> <p>Invisalign treatment uses clear plastic aligners to realign and reposition your teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible when you wear them. They work in a similar way as braces, but the aligners can be removed when you eat or brush your teeth.</p> <p>We offer a free, no-obligation consultation for orthodontic treatment.
