We look forward to being of service to you. Our friendly team, led by respected endodontic specialist Dr. Schwann, includes an experienced endodontic staff. We provide a high standard of professional care in a friendly, comfortable environment. Dr. Schwann is member of the Canadian Academy of Endodontics, the Alberta Endodontic Society and the American Association of Endodontists.

Calgary Endodontist Dr. Joseph Schwann is passionate about prevention and eradication of diseases of the tooth. We believe a healthy tooth remains the preferred option for good oral health.

In 1988 our Endodontist Dr. Schwann established his endodontic specialty practice in Calgary, Alberta, where he and his wife Dr. Sandra Schwann (pediatric dentistry) and their four very active children call home.

By referring you to our office, your dentist has shown their concern that you receive optimal endodontic care. Our goal is to provide quality endodontic care in a compassionate environment of professionalism and clinical excellence. We hope to provide you with a pleasant patient experience.

Referrals are not necessary but they are helpful and can expedite the treatment process. If you are searching for an endodontist in Calgary and you don’t have a referral, we can still take you as a patient.

A root canal (ie. endodontic treatment) is one of the most common dental procedures performed. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of extractions, bridges, or dental implants.

At the center of your tooth is a pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks or chips, or repeated dental procedures.

If you suffer from:

  • Swelling/ throbbing
  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Pain in the tooth and gums
  • Sensitivity to bite
  • Gum boil (drainage from infection)

Root canal treatment may be recommended to you. Please note that not all teeth that require a root canal have pain.
