A Root Canal Can Save Your Smile
Root canals are like fillings that extend into the nerve chamber of your tooth, sealing it off. They’re needed when the pulp tissues inside of your tooth are damaged or infected, causing an abscess or dying tooth.
You might need a root canal if you notice symptoms of:
What Happens During A Root Canal?
When you visit our Airdrie dentists for endodontic treatment, we will first make sure the area around your tooth is fully numb. Next, the damaged tooth structure is removed so that the pulp chamber can be accessed. After removing the diseased nerve tissues, we medicate the inner chamber and seal it off with a filling material.
Once a tooth has been treated endodontically, it is no longer alive. You’ll need to have a permanent crown made to go over your tooth, protecting its integrity and continued function.
Do Root Canals Hurt?
Most of the pain associated with a root canal is due to the swelling inside of your tooth. As long as we treat the tooth before the infection becomes severe, it should not be painful. In some cases, we may also recommend an antibiotic to lessen the swelling prior to your procedure.
If you feel nervous about seeing a dentist or an endodontist about a root canal, ask about our convenient sedation dental appointments. Each of our Airdrie root canal dentists is trained and experienced to provide in-office dental sedation for your comfort and safety.

I made my 1st visit to Airdrie Springs the other day and have no complaints with the service that I received. I'm one of those people that REALLY dislikes going to the dentist, as it causes me a great deal of anxiety. When I booked my appointment, I had requested to have Vicki as my hygienist, ,based on google reviews that I had previously read. Upon meeting Vicki, I explained my problem with anxiety and not only did she understand, but she conducted herself in a way in which helped to alleviate my anxiety. I will continue to use the services of Airdrie Springs Dental and would most certainly recommend them to anyone who like myself, is not at all comfortable with dentists. A big shout out to Vicki and her level of professionalism.
