Endodontics

Endodontics Assiniboine Dental Group | St. James, Winnipeg Dentist

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the dental pulp becomes inflamed or infected. At Assiniboine Dental Group in Winnipeg, we provide root canals and the treatment of dental pulp and tissues surrounding the tooth root.

Endodontic Treatment Options

Inflammation or infection of the tooth root can have a variety of causes including: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. 

If left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

  • Root Canal Treatment

    During a root canal procedure, the endodontist removes the damaged pulp of your tooth, including blood vessels and nerves.

    Next, they will thoroughly clean the space and fill it with medicated dental materials.

    Finally they will fill in the space with a dental filling, or cover it with a crown to help restore the tooth's function. 

  • Endodontic Retreatment

    If you've already had a root canal and you're experiencing issues again, the endodontist will reopen your tooth and remove the filling that was placed during the first procedure.

    The endodontist then carefully examines the tooth, looking for additional canals or new infection. 

  • Endodontic Surgery

    Endodontic surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals previously undetected on x-rays during the initial treatment.

    Surgery may also be needed to remove calcium deposits in root canals, or to treat damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone of the tooth.
