Trusted Ingrown Toenail Treatment in Edmonton

Toenails also act as barometers of our health - they are screening instruments that offer an early indication of the occurrence or emergence of systemic diseases. For example, the pitting of nails and the increased thickness of the nails may be signs of psoriasis. Concavity - nails that are pointed inward instead of outward is caused by iron-deficiency. While some nail conditions may be treated conservatively with topical or oral treatment, others require partial or complete removal of the nail. 

Don’t worry! If you have an ingrown toenail, White Oaks Foot & Ankle Clinic is here for you in Edmonton with effective services.

Causes of Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is characterized by a nail growing into the underlying skin, leading to irritation and potential infection of the toe. This is a critical problem for those with problematic circulation, diabetes, or other disorders that affect the entire body.

The causes for ingrown toenails include:

  • Improper nail trimming

  • Trauma

  • Pressure from ill-fitting shoes

  • Biomechanical foot imbalances

  • Heredity

For a consultation on an ingrown toenail surgery, reach out to White Oaks Foot & Ankle Clinic in Edmonton.


Some preventative measures that you can take are mentioned below:

  • Trim toenails straight across as a preventative measure

  • Select the proper shoe style and size
