Root Canal Therapy: Your Calgary Dentist Shares The Facts


Root canal therapy, otherwise known as endodontic treatment, focuses on injuries and diseases of dental pulp. The main objective of this treatment is to save a natural tooth, cure infection, and alleviate pain. At CHV Dental, many patients have opted for it instead of turning to an irreversible tooth extraction.

Fast facts about root canal therapy

Each year, more than 14 million teeth are saved thanks to root canal therapy. When extensive decay or damage occurs, we often recommend this treatment because it allows you to keep a natural tooth in place and avoid infection and inflammation. Healthy teeth are vital as they allow you to:

  • speak with ease
  • laugh and smile without shame or fear due to gaps
  • maintain the biting and chewing function of teeth
  • avoid shifting issues that arise following tooth extraction.

Root canal therapy eliminates pain & can prevent infection from spreading

It’s widely known that a tooth requiring root canal therapy is likely to experience significant pain and swelling once an abscess has formed. What many patients may not realize is that, left untreated, the infection can spread to other areas of the mouth, causing serious damage in the process. By undergoing root canal therapy as soon as you need it, you’re not only removing decay and eradicating infection, you’re prioritizing your oral and overall health in the process.
