An endodontic (or root canal) treatment becomes necessary when a tooth’ pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth which contains blood vessels and nerves) has been inflamed or infected with caries.

We will remove the caries, the nerve and other tissue of the pulp to stop the decay and ache. The pulp cavity will then be disinfected and filled with suitable material; an esthetic crown or filling finishes off the root canal treatment.

Digital Radiology, the Rotary Systems and the latest in Endodontic Technology, technological resources on which we counted, allow us to provide safer, faster and painless treatments.

When do you need an endodontic treatment?

Endodontic is necessary when certain conditions such as:

  • Intense pain
  • Severe tooth sensitivity
  • Tooth discolored
  • Sensitive or inflamed gums

What are the benefits and advantages of endodontic treatment?

An endodontic treatment helps you maintain good dental health and maintain an aesthetic smile

  • Avoid extraction of a natural tooth
  • Eliminates dental infections
  • Avoid more costly dental treatments

What is necessary for root canal treatment?

An endodontic treatment takes about two sessions; however, it is important to consider the following points:

  • Radiographs
  • Temperature tests and sensitivity
  • Local anesthesia
  • Clean cavities and tooth nerve removal

My root canal treated tooth will stay the same?

No, a root canal treated tooth can change color and susceptibility to fracture increases significantly. Over time we can make rehabilitation with a post and crown or in some cases remove the tooth.
