Root Canal Therapy

What is a Root Canal?

If the nerve inside a tooth is affected by infection or decay, our Lethbridge dentists will perform a root canal procedure to remove the infected tissue, and repair the tooth.

Signs & Symptoms of Pulp Infection

You may need a root canal if you experience any of the following issues:

  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Severe toothache pain
  • Swelling and/or tenderness

Visit your dentist to find out if you need a root canal. They will be able to diagnose the issue, and recommend suitable treatment.

Preserving Natural Teeth

A root canal procedure can save the damaged tooth, preventing it from having to be extracted.

Extracting a problem tooth is usually not the best solution, and is usually only done if less invasive procedures prove ineffective. Removing a tooth will likely cause issues for surrounding teeth, and can end up being more expensive in the long term, as the missing teeth will need to be replaced.
