No one ever wants to be told they need a Root Canal – especially if they’ve heard stories of extreme discomfort and facial swelling. NW Calgary Dentists at Ranchlands Dental acknowledge that Root Canal Therapy isn’t high on peoples’ fun things to do list – that’s why this group of Calgary Dentists focus on providing the right environment and treatment options to make sure every appointment at Ranchlands Dental (including root canal treatment) is a good one.
There are a few reasons why a tooth may require Root Canal Therapy. Of course the objective of a root canal is to save the natural tooth and avoid having to have an extraction. When a tooth is extracted the symptoms of a diseased or traumatized tooth are resolved as soon as the tooth is removed – however this is just the beginning of treatment as a decision on how to replace the tooth then has to be made. When you choose to have a root canal your tooth is able to be saved and will continue to look, and function, just like a natural tooth. Because a tooth that has had root canal therapy is considered non-vital due to the nerve and blood supply being removed; crown coverage is recommended to protect the tooth and prevent it from fracturing.
The General Dentists at Ranchlands Dental care about providing patients treatment options that help maintain a level of oral health and beauty. Providing root canal treatment that addresses infection, decay, broken or traumatized teeth and a tooth that has developed extreme sensitivity to hot and cold and pressure; means that patients are able to focus on regaining their dental health quickly, safely and affordably. Even with advances to dental implants, bridges and denture options – many dentists agree that if a tooth can be successfully saved with root canal therapy it’s a great option.
NW Calgary Dentists at Ranchlands Dental understand that making dental treatment choices can at times feel overwhelming – having an opportunity to consult with a dentist and discuss all viable options is a great place to start and will make treatment decisions relaxed and easy.
