What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. NOTHING IS AS GOOD AS YOUR NATURAL TOOTH!
The dental pulp (“nerve”) is located at the center of your tooth. It is a collection of blood vessels, nerve fibers, and cells that help to build the surrounding hard tissue of your tooth. Inflammation and infection of the canal (dental pulp) space can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks, or repeated dental procedures.
The signs and symptoms of the inflammation and infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the jaws, sensitivity to temperature and/or spontaneous pain in the tooth, and, pathological alterations in the bone surrounding the root tips.
What is Endodontic Microsurgery?
Endodontic microsurgery is an effective way to treat persistent pathology (disease) and damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone of the tooth. There’s no need to worry about surgery if your endodontist prescribes this additional measure.
Advanced technologies like cone-bean CT scans, digital imaging, and operating microscopes allow these procedures to be performed quickly, comfortably and successfully.
There are many surgical procedures that can be performed to save a tooth. The most common is called an apicoectomy, or root-end resection, which may be needed when inflammation or infection persists in the bony area around the end of your tooth after a root canal procedure.
