Project Description

Root canals have a bad reputation. But at Blackfalds Dental Centre, we want you to know that they don’t have to be traumatic. And, having one could keep you from losing a tooth. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could mean the nerve of your tooth is exposed or infected:

  • a severe toothache
  • pain when chewing or when pressure is applied
  • prolonged sensitivity to temperatures
  • dark discoloration of the tooth
  • swelling and tenderness in the surrounding gums

Our friendly staff will provide you with a comfortable experience so you can walk out of our office free from any pain.

Signs you may need Root Canal Treatment

  • Pain when you apply pressure to a tooth (e.g. biting)

  • A tooth begins to darken in color

  • Your gums feel tender or swollen

  • A small bump on your gums that won’t go away

  • Increased or lingering sensitivity to cold or heat
