Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment, please visit our root canal page.
Root Canal Surgery
Root canal surgery is used in cases where conventional root canals are not possible (calcified canals) or may have failed (become infected). In this procedure the endodontist makes an opening in the gum tissue and removes the infected tissue and the end of the root. A seal is placed at the end of the root to prevent further infection. The material used is MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate), which is a state of the art material that is far superior to previous materials used for this type of procedure. With the infected tissue removed and MTA seal placed, the bone is replaced naturally by the body over the course of a few months.
