Root Canal Therapy
Root canals might have a bad reputation, but they can you patients out of pain and save the tooth. Dr. Parsa has an instrument to freeze the tooth more directly.
Root Canals in Airdrie
It’s a common belief that root canals are painful, but with the proper medication and treatment, root canals can be as pain-free as a filling. At Yankee Valley Dental, we do our best to ensure your Airdrie root canal is as comfortable as possible.
A root canal can be the difference between keeping your natural tooth and having to pull it out, so it is important to get it done properly. If you have a tooth that is badly decayed, damaged or infected a root canal may repair and save your tooth, thereby reducing the pain and restoring your tooth to functioning normally.
What is a Root Canal?
The enamel, the outer most layer of your tooth, is very hard. The next layer is the dentin and in the very centre of the tooth is the pulp, where you find nerves, blood vessels and soft tissue. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, you will likely need a root canal. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and filled.
We offer dentistry to patients of all ages, putting the utmost importance in the quality of work that we provide.
If you don’t get the infection fixed, the tissue can become inflamed and abscesses may form (a pocket of pus around the root). An abscess does not heal itself and if not looked at by a dentist can spread to your jaw, neck and head. If you have significant pain or notice swelling in your cheek, jaw or throat you should seek immediate treatment.
Get rid of the pain, save your tooth and get it back to looking and working normally with an Airdrie root canal with Yankee Valley Dental.
