Gentle root canal therapy in West Edmonton
Root canal therapy is sometimes necessary when a tooth is very badly decayed, or damaged by traumatic injury. If the tooth is infected, it will often need root canal therapy in order to save it from extraction.

Symptoms of an infected tooth include:

  • Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold
  • A very high degree of pain
  • An abscess in the area of the tooth
  • A bad taste in your mouth
In some cases, the infected tooth may not be symptomatic at all. Treatment for an infected tooth is vital because, if left alone, the infection can lead to tooth loss and even risks to your overall health. A root canal is designed to clean out the nerve chamber of the tooth and destroy the bacteria that’s causing the problem. Once the infection has been cleared away, the tooth is sealed with a very durable material, and capped with a permanent dental crown. Root canal therapy ultimately reinforces the tooth with a stronger support structure. The results typically look and feel like a beautiful, natural tooth.
