The word “endodontic” refers to the treatment of the interior of the tooth, in the tissue and nerves called the pulp. When a deep cavity intrudes into the pulp, the bacteria gets inside and causes infection and decay, and requires a root canal to treat it.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Endodontics" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-endo.jpg" /><h2 class="mt-2">How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>After administering anaesthetic, the dentist will gain access to the interior of the tooth with a drill. The dentist then removes the affected pulp with special tools, and sanitizes the interior. Depending on the individual case, the dentist may either finish with a filling or put in a temporary filling and recommend a crown to support the remaining tooth structure.</p> <h2 class="mt-2">Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>No more than an ordinary filling! There’s no need to be nervous of a root canal. With anaesthetic and modern treatment tools and procedures, most people find the process close to painless and recover quickly.</p> <p>If you are experiencing pain in a tooth or suspect you have a filling or infection, don’t hesitate and risk your oral health. Call NE Calgary’s Chan Chang Boruah today and we’ll fix you up!</p></div> Fri, 31 Jan 2020 16:21:36 +0000 admin 41 at Orthodontics & Invisalign Treatment in NE Calgary <span>Orthodontics &amp; Invisalign Treatment in NE Calgary</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2020-01-31T10:18:01-06:00" title="Friday, January 31, 2020 - 10:18">Fri, 01/31/2020 - 10:18</time> </span> <div><p>For our patients with crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth, orthodontics not only fix the smile’s cosmetic appearance but also improve the function of the mouth for chewing and talking. Fixing these problems also prevent further issues down the road, such as tooth wearing, jaw pain, or decay. </p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Endodontics" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-invis.jpg" /><h2 class="mt-2">Metal Braces</h2> <p>The traditional and popular choice, metal braces are cost-effective and get great results. Don’t be nervous about metal braces: dentistry has come a long way from the big braces of the past, and today’s options are smaller and more comfortable than ever. Reliable and affordable, each patient’s requirements are different, so our team will always discuss your options thoroughly with you, and you can rely on our expertise. </p> <h2 class="mt-2">Invisalign Clear Aligners</h2> <p>Another option for orthodontic treatment is Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign uses a series of BPA-free clear plastic aligners customized to fix your specific orthodontic issues. When worn, they are barely noticeable as well as comfortable and convenient, since they can be removed for eating and oral hygiene. Invisalign is a popular choice for patients of all ages who need braces.</p> <p>If your teeth need to be straightened, moved, or adjusted, come visit our skilled and caring team in NE Calgary, for all the orthodontic options you need for the best results.</p></div> Fri, 31 Jan 2020 16:18:01 +0000 admin 40 at Dr. Carmen Wong <span>Dr. Carmen Wong</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2020-01-31T09:16:07-06:00" title="Friday, January 31, 2020 - 09:16">Fri, 01/31/2020 - 09:16</time> </span> <div><div class="border-div"><img class="float-left teamimg mb-2 mr-2 rec-img" alt="Dr. Carmen Wong" src="/files/images/team/DrWong.jpg" /></div> <p>Bio coming soon.</p></div> Fri, 31 Jan 2020 15:16:07 +0000 admin 38 at Dr. Yoonmi Kim <span>Dr. Yoonmi Kim</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2020-01-31T09:14:56-06:00" title="Friday, January 31, 2020 - 09:14">Fri, 01/31/2020 - 09:14</time> </span> <div><div class="border-div"><img class="float-left teamimg mb-2 mr-2 rec-img" alt="Dr. Yoonmi Kim" src="/files/images/team/DrKim.jpg" /></div> <p>Originally from Kingston, Ontario, Dr. Kim earned her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at Queen’s University before completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) at the Arthur A.

However, after a near-asthma attack at the horse races one summer ended his veterinarian pursuits, he moved to Halifax to complete a Master of Science in Ecology and Evolution from Dalhousie University. After realizing the number of post-doctoral applicants far outweighed the number of available positions in evolutionary ecology, he turned to dentistry and obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Toronto. This turned out to be the best decision of his life, and Dr. Chan loves coming to work each day to care for his patients. When he’s not treating patients, Dr. Chan is an avid road cyclist, a musician/composer, and a dedicated family man.</p></div> Fri, 31 Jan 2020 15:13:45 +0000 admin 36 at Dr. Partha Boruah <span>Dr. Partha Boruah</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2020-01-31T09:11:27-06:00" title="Friday, January 31, 2020 - 09:11">Fri, 01/31/2020 - 09:11</time> </span> <div><div class="border-div"><img class="float-left teamimg mb-2 mr-2 rec-img" alt="Dr. Partha Boruah" src="/files/images/team/dr-partha-boruah.jpg" /></div> <p>Extensively educated with specialized training and experience, Dr. Boruah is an asset to our team who believes in using the latest technology to care for his patients.

Sometimes there is no room in the jaw left for them to emerge, which can lead to pain and soreness as well as “impaction”, in which the wisdom teeth become stuck in the jaw and potentially damage the teeth around them.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Wisdom Teeth Closeup" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-wisdom.jpg" /><h2 class="mt-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/extraction"></div></div> </div> <p>Wisdom teeth extraction is done under sedation, and requires a few days’ recovery (although some people recover even sooner).

If something unexpected does happen, we’re always just a phone call away. </p> <p>Don’t live with pain and soreness in your jaw, or allow your impacted wisdom teeth to damage the healthy teeth around them.
