Sometimes as tooth begins to decay, the infection keeps spreading into the deeper areas. This spreading of the infection eventually leads to the damage of the nerves. The nerve dies and needs to be eliminated and replaced. This is when you may need a root canal. Root Canal means we remove the dead nerve and fill it with rubber product called gutta percha in most cases.
There are a lot of reasons why your tooth might need a root canal. The most common form is damage. However it can also happen if your tooth faces a sudden shock like a hard hit.
here are lots of symptoms that might hint that you need a root canal. Pain being the prime factor. You might also experience swelling, biting tenderness, sensitivity to hot or cold food, darker tooth colour etc.
If any of these symtoms are your concern, please contact us and book an examination. We will take detailed reports and x-rays to tell you exactly what the condition of your tooth is.
Dear Valued Patient,
First and foremost, we want to extend our gratitude to all of our patients and community members for understanding the changes we are having to implement because of current events.
The Alberta Dental Association and College has mandated that dental offices only provide emergency services due to COVID-19.
Your health and safety is our priority. In that light, and in an effort to keep everyone safe, we have suspended normal dental care at our office, BUT we are still AVAILABLE to treat DENTAL EMERGENCIES! The last thing we'd want at this time is for patients with a serious infection to go to a medical provider because they could not find a dental provider. That being said, if you encounter someone with a serious dental emergency, please inform them that we are here to help!
All non-essential upcoming appointments will be rescheduled into the future. If you have one coming up, expect a phone call from one of our team members, if you have not already.
We will hopefully have a better outlook in the next few weeks and will keep you updated from our side. We look forward to seeing you all after the crisis and well into the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Kinjal Patel Kingsview Dental
