Endodontic Procedures

1.   Root Canal Therapy: 

   Root canal therapy is a procedure performed to treat infections or damage within the pulp of a tooth. The dentist removes the infected or inflamed pulp, cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth, and then fills and seals it. This process not only alleviates pain and discomfort but also saves the natural tooth from extraction.


2.   Endodontic Retreatment: 

   Endodontic retreatment is a procedure performed when a tooth that has undergone a previous root canal treatment exhibits signs of persistent infection or complications. During retreatment, the dentist reopens the tooth, removes the existing filling material, addresses any issues, and then reseals the tooth. This ensures the continued health and function of the treated tooth.


Endodontic procedures are crucial for preserving the integrity of the tooth and preventing the spread of infection. They allow patients to retain their natural teeth and continue enjoying optimal oral health.
