Root Canal Treatment
Are you in need of root canal treatment? You are not alone! Millions of Canadians are able to save their teeth every year with root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy. Watch this video by dedicated Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh as he explains root canal treatment, and its benefits.
Your teeth have nerves inside of them and sometimes those nerves can die. When those nerves die or start to die, it can cause pain and can cause infections to develop. In situations like that, you can get a root canal. When I tell people that, a lot of them ask what is root canal therapy?
When performing root canal therapy, we basically create a little hole on top of the tooth to gain access to the nerves that are inside of the tooth. Through several tools that we have, we clean out the inside of the tooth, to the best of our abilities, and we disinfect it and fill it in with some inner gutta percha, so that we give the tooth the best chance of survival. We also take away the tissue that the bacteria were using to cause infections and their byproduct.
