Suffering Dental Pain? You May Need A Root Canal!

The High River Dental Centre Team performs High River Root Canal Therapy to save your teeth from extraction. Unfortunately, your teeth are not able to heal themselves recover after disease or trauma to the nerve which makes root canal therapy a critical dental treatment to save your teeth.

Why You May Need a Root Canal

Root canal therapy is suggested when the nerve inside your tooth — called the pulp — is infected or has become exposed due to advanced tooth decay or injury. When the nerve inside the tooth becomes infected or exposed, an infection known as an abscess may occur inside the tooth or in the bone, at the tip of your root. This abscess will destroy the bone surrounding the tooth and may cause severe pain and discomfort.

Symptoms of an Infected or Compromised Tooth

Common signs that the tooth is unhealthy are not always identified right away, but as the infection progresses, you may notice one (or more) of the following signs:

  • Pain and pressure in the area of the infected tooth.
  • Teeth become reactive to hot or cold food and beverages.
  • The color of the tooth starts to slowly darken, suggesting the nerve has died.
  • Pain and tenderness in your gums become more frequent and painful.
  • Tooth pain wakes you up in the middle of the night and affects the quality of your sleep.
  • Spontaneous, throbbing tooth pain is not relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.

Busting Common Root Canal Myths

There are many myths associated with root canal therapy, and at High River Dental, our job is to help you make the most informed decision regarding your treatment options and how they affect your overall health.

The most common myth associated with Root Canal Therapy is its a very painful procedure. In reality, Root Canal Therapy is carried out to relieve pain and discomfort for teeth that are diseased and infection. The High River Dental team pays very close attention to your comfort level during and after your High River Root Canal treatment, and we make adjustments along the way to ensure your comfort is maintained.

Saving Your Teeth with High River Root Canal Therapy

Saving your natural teeth is always our first priority — preserving your natural teeth is our goal. There are situations when root canal therapy is not an ideal treatment option, and the need for an extraction is unavoidable.

When your tooth cannot be saved with root canal therapy, we plan your treatment to replace the missing tooth with dental implants, dental bridges, or partial dentures to restore the function of your teeth, to prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting and moving.

Preventing the Need for Root Canal

Prevent the need for root canal therapy can be achieved by maintaining proper oral hygiene practices, choosing a healthy diet, and by wearing a custom sports mouthguard to prevent injury to the teeth. Regular dental visits with our Dental Team to diagnose and treat underlying issues early, before they also progress greatly reducing your risk of infection and ultimately the need for root canal therapy.
