Root Canal Surgery in Ocean Township Township, Freehold & Middletown NJ
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.
