Modern-day endodontics involves saving teeth by painlessly and predictably removing infected tissue from inside a tooth. After the infected root canal tissue is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, disinfected, filled and sealed. The aim is to leave the tooth in a stable and functional state so that you can comfortably and confidently use it. This procedure is commonly known as root canal treatment.
Root Canal Re-Treatment
Increasing we see the need to re-treat a tooth that already has had root canal treatment but has not settled.
Working under rubber dam with an operating microscope which magnifies and illuminates the operating field, endodontists are able now to remove posts and old root fillings, find hidden canals and navigate around complex root shapes to treat the entire root canal system and enable healing.
Teeth that just a few years ago would have been deemed unrestorable can now be saved.
