Root Canal Treatment In St. Albert

Are you experiencing tooth pain or distress
caused extensive decay, infection, tooth trauma or gum disease?

Root Canal treatment is performed when tooth decay has reached the inner tooth tissue. The treatment allows a patient to keep their tooth, but it consists of completely removing the damaged tissue (pulp) from the tooth roots, which are usually infected with bacteria.
Removing the tissue helps to prevent infection from spreading to the jawbone, which can cause general health issues. In addition, the entire pulp in the root canal is sealed with a special compound to eliminate room for any remaining bacteria the chance to grow.
