Root Canal Therapy in Sherwood Park
An infection can cause damage to a tooth as well as the surrounding tissue. Root canal therapy is a common endodontic treatment used to treat tooth infection. At Park Mall Dental Centre in Sherwood Park, we perform root canal therapy for a number of infection problems. Our general dentist will be able to determine if a root canal is right to treat your toothache or inflamed gums. We will examine your tooth as well as the pulp and nerve tissue around it to find out the best course of action.
What are the steps involved with Root Canal Therapy?
In general, a root canal therapy consists of the following:
- Performing X-rays on the infected tooth
- Administering local anesthesia
- Removing swollen nerve tissue from the infected tooth
- Cleaning the root canal
- Sealing the root canal
- Filling in the root canal
- Sealing the tooth
- Positioning a crown on top of the seal
Once the procedure is complete, the general dentist will provide instructions on what to do during the healing process. We will recommend or prescribe medication for discomfort or pain and offer alternatives in case of any complications.
