Endodontic treatment is another word for root canal treatment which involves removing damaged or dead nerves and blood vessels in the tooth root that have become infected due to decay, cracks or trauma.
The space left is then filled with a material that seals the tooth and keeps it functioning as before.
Re-treatment (Re-endo) can be a complex and demanding procedure involving the removal of existing root filling material, re-cleaning the canals and placing new filling material. We use SmartOptic microscope which offers a great benefit for complex root canal therapy cases, teeth with difficult access, searching for difficult or nearly impossible to find canal openings and removing broken posts or instruments and for endodontic root end surgery.
Endodontic treatment can safely and comfortably save a tooth for many years that would otherwise has to be extracted.
Remember, a healthy restored tooth is always better than an artificial one. The choice is yours, but there are many disadvantages of losing a tooth. When a tooth is removed and not replaced, the teeth next to the empty space begin to shift from their normal position. This may cause teeth to become crooked or crowded, which decreases chewing and biting efficiency.
