HAVING DISCOMFORT WITH AN INFECTED TOOTH?
Root Canals in Edmonton
If you're experiencing pain due to a tooth or gum infection, there is a solution for you at Clearwater Dental Clinic.
The need for root canal therapy, a relatively common endodontic treatment, arises if a tooth infection begins to cause damage to a tooth and the tissues surrounding it. If toothache or inflamed gums are causing you discomfort, a general dentist at Clearwater Dental Clinic in Edmonton will help you determine if you need root canal therapy by analyzing your tooth and the pulp and nerve tissue around it..
STEPS INVOLVED IN A ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE
A root canal procedure consists of the following steps:
- Taking x-rays of the affected tooth
- Administration of local anesthesia
- Removal of swollen nerve tissue
- Cleaning of the root canal
- Sealing of the root canal
- Filling of the root canal
- Positioning of the crown on the sealed tooth
AFTER A ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE
After the procedure, the general dentist will inform you of the precautions that need to be taken until the healing process is complete; recommend or prescribe medication if you experience any discomfort or pain; and provide alternatives in case any complications are perceived.
