Use of root canal treatment to preserve teeth
When a tooth starts to throb painfully, this often means that the tooth’s nerve is inflamed or has died off. When this happens, a root canal treatment by dental professionals also referred to as endodontics, is the only available option to preserve the tooth.
We open the root canal and remove the necrotic tissue using flexible specialist tools. The tooth is disinfected for a defined period with by a temporary filling containing medication, after which it will be carefully filled and sealed.
The tooth can continue to be used to chew and can also serve as a natural abutment, when a dental prosthetics is fitted. Experience and precision are important for the success of this treatment. To ensure the best possible outcome, we use surgical microscopes and dental dams to ensure the best possible hygiene.
