Root Canal Therapy
One of the most common needs requiring Emergency Dental Care is Root Canal Therapy. Aside from extreme pain and discomfort, a damaged tooth can ultimately lead to infection. When left untreated, it can even lead to some serious health concerns such as heart attack and stroke. To remedy this, we offer endodontic therapy or most commonly referred to as root canal treatment. With this treatment, our experienced dental team can save damaged teeth and prevent the need for tooth extraction. Our dentists are available 7 days a week to help deal with Emergency Root Canal Treatments. So call us to book today!
What are the symptoms of an infected tooth?
Severe toothache, extreme sensitivity to heat and cold as well as problem chewing are some indications of having an infected tooth. Other symptoms of a possible infection include an abscess along the gums, a discoloured appearance to the tooth, and/or inflammation and tenderness of the gums. However, it’s important to note that in some cases, a tooth infection can exhibit no symptoms at all.
Visiting our office regularly for dental check-ups is vital to ensuring healthy teeth. But, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, please get in touch with our professional staff as soon as possible. For any urgent concerns, we are always ready to assist you.
What are the benefits of root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is an effective treatment for infected teeth. Some of the benefits of having this procedure includes the eliminations of tooth infection, pain and sensitivity. It can also help you restore the health, appearance and function of a damaged tooth. Furthermore, root canal therapy can reduce the risk of tooth extraction and overall health concerns associated with a tooth infection.
Then, what does the treatment involve?
Before any treatment, our dentist will examine you to determine if root canal therapy is necessary for your condition. Once they have determined that you need to undergo the procedure, a personalized treatment plan will be created to specifically address your tooth condition. Your tooth will be cleaned to remove bacteria and the nerve chamber will be sterilized. To seal the nerve chamber, a filling material will be used. A customized porcelain crown will then be placed on the tooth to give it greater durability, protection and appearance.
If by any chance, undergoing such a procedure gives you strong levels of dental anxiety, our practice also offers sedation techniques for a more comfortable and relaxing treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, give us a call today!
Extractions / Wisdom Teeth Removal
As Emergency Dentists, our main goal is to preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy for as long as possible. Unfortunately, accidents do happen and a tooth may need to be extracted. However, there are many times when it is in the patient’s best interest to have a tooth extracted or removed. This could be the case for a variety of reasons.
Reasons for Extracting a Tooth
Sometimes, a tooth that has been badly injured or extensively damaged that it simply cannot be saved. But that’s not always the case. Tooth extraction can also be performed to remove impacted wisdom teeth. Early removal of impacted wisdom teeth can prevent damage to neighbouring healthy teeth, bone, gum tissue, even nerves and blood vessels. If an impacted wisdom tooth is in a bad position, it’s best to remove it before its roots are fully formed.
What is the process of tooth extraction?
First, a radiographic (x-ray) examination will be conducted to assess the position of the tooth roots and the condition of the surrounding bone. Our team will also conduct a thorough medical and drug history to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure.
Usually, a tooth extraction is carried out with local anesthesia but other sedatives can also be administered when necessary. Our dentist will delicately remove your tooth while being careful not to damage the bone that surrounds it.
If you need an emergency tooth extraction, know that our practice offers a number of tooth replacement options, including dental implants and dental bridges, that can restore your teeth with results that both look and feel natural.
We are open 7-days a week and welcome all patients who are experiencing dental emergencies to our NE Calgary Dental practice. So call our office to get your dental emergency seen today!
