Root Canals

At our Calgary dental office, we may recommend root canal therapy when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. 


Why do I need a root canal?

When the inner pulp of a tooth becomes damaged or decayed, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay must be removed to help save the tooth. During the procedure, the resulting space is filled with a special medicated dental material, to help restore the tooth to its natural function.

Our dentists may recommend a root canal in cases where:

  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp
  • Infection or abscess have developed in the tooth
  • There is an injury or trauma to the tooth
