Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure that is used to treat a tooth with an infected or damaged pulp. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause severe pain and sensitivity. During the procedure, the infected or damaged pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and filled with a biocompatible material to prevent further infection. After the root canal therapy, a dental crown may be placed over the treated tooth to provide additional support and protection. Root canal therapy is a safe and effective way to save a damaged or infected tooth and prevent the need for extraction. Our team of experienced and skilled dentists at Aster Dental Centre in Edmonton is dedicated to providing high-quality root canal therapy to restore the health and function of your teeth.
