This dental solution is a form of urgent care for an abscessed tooth with infected, injured, or dead pulp in the root canal. Left untreated, an abscessed tooth can cause a serious infection to spread throughout the rest of the mouth and blood stream.

The Root Canal Therapy Procedure

We know that root canal therapy sounds frightening, so our team of gentle, experienced Calgary dentists take extra precautions to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.

After giving you an anesthetic, Dr. Popp will begin by placing a special rubber dam around your tooth to keep it clean and free from saliva bacteria. He’ll make a small opening in the tooth and carefully extract the infected tooth pulp.

Once the tooth pulp is removed, the area is cleaned, your tooth canal is sealed, and a filling is inserted. In some cases, you may need additional restoration to your tooth, such as a dental crown.

The entire process is quick, with very little pain or discomfort. Most patients recover fully in less than one week.

Root Canal Therapy Benefits

  • Immediately relieves the pain and swelling associated with an abscessed tooth
  • Improves overall health, as untreated tooth infections can cause serious illness throughout the rest of the body
  • Prevents tooth decay from spreading to adjacent teeth
  • Saves your original tooth
