Treatment & Procedures

Endodontic Treatment Objectives

- Relief of pain if present.
- Removal of diseased tissue from the root canal systems, thereby saving the tooth instead of extracting it.
- Disinfection of root and surrounding bone - this phase of treatment may take several appointments if disease
  is severe.
- Complete filling of the root canal system.

Endodontic Therapy

A sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. These set of procedures are commonly referred to as a "root canal."


Endodontic Retreatment

Root canal procedures that are carried out on a tooth that has previously had root canal treatment. For this reason it is also referred to as a "repeat root canal treatment".


Endodontic Surgery

Surgical procedures that are performed to save a tooth by the removal of inflammation or infection that persist in the bony area around the end of your tooth.


Treatment of Cracked Teeth

Crack tooth pain often comes from damage to the inner soft tissue of the tooth, the pulp. Endodontic therapy, also known as root canal treatment, can relieve that pain.


Treatment of Traumatic Injuries

Teeth damaged by sudden physical injury and accidents can result in inflamed and infected pulp tissue requiring endodontic therapy.


Internal Bleaching

The use of a whitening agent to "lighten" a tooth that has become dark due to previous root canal treatment.
