Root Canals

Fort McMurray Family Dentists

There is a myth floating around that root canals are a painful procedure however, this is far from the case. Root canals are painless treatments. The pain you feel comes from the problem area in your mouth and the treatment takes away this pain.

Soft tissue forms inside your tooth, underneath white enamel and a hard layer called dentine. This tissue is known as pulp and naturally helps grow the root of your tooth as it develops. Pulp is what gets infected or inflamed, causing pain or swelling, resulting in your need to visit the dentist for a root canal. You may also need a root canal if we see signs of deep decay, a crack or chip in your tooth, an injury to your tooth, a faulty crown or you have had repeated procedures on a tooth.

When you come in to Franklin Dental for a root canal we usually get you out of the dentist chair in an hour.

After Care

Fort McMurray Family Dental

1(780) 790-0088
Your tooth is bound to be tender for the first week or two but there should not be any pain, swelling or heavy bleeding after this time frame; if so call us right away. If anesthetic was given to you during the treatment, your lips, tongue and teeth may be numb for several hours after your appointment so avoid hot foods and liquids until you have all feeling back. It is easy to burn your tongue or lip while under the numbing anesthetic. 

We suggest eating soft foods for the first 2 days after therapy in order to avoid tenderness from heavy chewing. You will need to rinse with warm salt water 2-3 times per day to help clean the area and keep it debris free. Stay away from strenuous exercise for 24 hours and always come back to see us so we can maintain your health and comfort. If you need more information, we are only a call away.
