Root canals are like fillings that extend into the nerve chamber of your tooth, sealing it off. They’re needed when the pulp tissues inside of your tooth are damaged or infected, causing an abscess or dying tooth.
When you visit our Airdrie dentists for endodontic treatment, we will first make sure the area around your tooth is fully numb. Next, the damaged tooth structure is removed so that the pulp chamber can be accessed. After removing the diseased nerve tissues, we medicate the inner chamber and seal it off with a filling material.
Once a tooth has been treated endodontically, it is no longer alive. You’ll need to have a permanent crown made to go over your tooth, protecting its integrity and continued function.
Most of the pain associated with a root canal is due to the swelling inside of your tooth. As long as we treat the tooth before the infection becomes severe, it should not be painful. In some cases, we may also recommend an antibiotic to lessen the swelling prior to your procedure.
If you feel nervous about seeing a dentist or an endodontist about a root canal, ask about our convenient sedation dental appointments. Each of our Airdrie dentists is licensed to provide in-house dental sedation for your comfort and safety.
Don’t put your tooth pain off; it won’t go away on its own. It may even cost you your smile! Book a consultation today with one of our dentists to find out if a root canal is in your future.

I am extremely happy with my first couple appts here! The front staff are amazing and knowledgeable, and the dentist's are professional and friendly! Didn't feel a thing during my extraction, and everyone was very patient with my questions! I didn't just feel like "another patient", they treat people well here. I highly recommend this place!

I have always been nervous going in to the dentist however Dr.Thorsen and team has completely put me at ease! All of the staff there have been nothing but friendly and always addressed my concerns. The office staff are also very kind and always efficient. Being fairly new to Airdrie I would definitely recommend this dental business!

Went in today to get a check up. Service was excellent. All workers were seen following the new protocols that came with the covid situation. Facility is spotless and noticed that anything I touched was immediately cleaned prior to it being put away. Highly recommend

I’ve been going to Rommel as my dental hygienist for over 4 years, and very happy to say how highly I regard him! Great personality, genuine, warm and caring. He is meticulous and systematic, very careful and very thorough. He creates a climate of calmness and confidence, never flustered or impatient. A very likable, excellent in his field, guy! My dentist is Dr Ng, and ditto goes for him! How often can one say they look forward to their dental appointments - but I actually do!
