Root Canal Therapy in Westlock, Alberta
Hold on to that natural tooth for longer!
Teeth decay, break, and crack. When this happens, a root canal might be the best course of action. Root canal therapy salvages the natural tooth rather than replacing it with a dental implant. The tooth will appear the same way it did before the procedure and may last forever without another treatment.
- Keep your natural smile and avoid dental implants
- Short treatment process
- Maintain normal biting sensation
A root canal involves gently removing the nerve tissue of a tooth and sealing the canals with a special rubberlike material. After root canal therapy the tooth will not be able to feel temperature or pain but will maintain normal biting power and sensation.
Does it hurt?
In the past root canals have been quite painful but with new advances in dental technology, it is no more uncomfortable than a regular filling.
Will I need any other work other than my root canal?
You may require a dental crown so that the tooth does not fracture following the treatment. A tooth that has undergone the therapy may become more brittle and overtime may be susceptible to cracking.
Will my insurance cover the cost of my root canal?
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
