Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Therapy


As one of the most common dental procedures performed in Canada, at South Point Dental in Airdrie, we know that root canal (endodontic) therapy can not only remove pain and save an infected tooth, it can also help patients maintain their beautiful smiles

What is a root canal?

Root canal therapy is a procedure that repairs and saves a tooth that is badly decayed, infected, or injured. During this procedure, the damaged or diseased pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) is removed before it’s thoroughly cleaned and sealed.

Why might I need a root canal?

There are several reasons why patients require root canal therapy, but the most common is that your tooth has become infected. Other reasons include:

  • Your tooth has been damaged by trauma
  • You have a large cavity that has reached the pulp of your tooth
  • Your tooth is cracked or broken.

How should I care for a tooth that's been treated with root canal therapy?

While we recommend that you cover your tooth with a dental crown to reinforce its strength, it's important to brush and floss your tooth regularly and visit your dentist for regular check-ups. With proper care, teeth treated with root canal therapy can last for many, many years.
