The days of painful, fear-inducing root canals are over. Using the latest in analgesics and technology, the experienced Edmonton dentists at Saddleback Dental Centre can complete root canals in a relatively easy and pain-free manner. When the analgesics wear off, you will likely experience some soreness or tissue inflammation but this is controllable with non-prescription medication.
Deep Cavities or Injuries can Expose the Root Canal to Infection
Under the protective layers of enamel at the core of your teeth is a soft tissue chamber that contains nerves, veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Each pulp chamber branches off at the top and forms canals that lead to the root tip of the tooth. If you have a deep cavity, injury or tooth fracture, the root canal can be exposed to bacterial infection. Untreated infections will kill the pulp, resulting in increased blood flow and creating pressure within the tooth. Along with the possibility of severe pain, the infection could result in tooth loss.
