What Is Non-Surgical Endodontics?
Endodontists are frequently able to treat common conditions using non-surgical treatments, such as root canal therapy. Non-surgical endodontics may also involve correcting or completing previous treatments that were incomplete or unsuccessful.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Endodontics
Non-surgical endodontics offers a variety of benefits to patients, such as:
- Relieving pain
- Preserving teeth
- Reduced risk of infection or bone loss
- Bone preservation
- Correcting problems that developed as a result of previous root canals
- Quicker healing time
- Greater comfort during treatment and recovery
Non-surgical endodontics treatments and procedures we provide include:
Root Canal Treatment
Non-surgical root canal treatment is provided to save severely decayed or infected teeth. This is done by removing the pulp of the tooth, thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the canals in the tooth, and sealing the tooth with a biocompatible material.
Our root canal specialists use technologically advanced techniques and devices to ensure a successful treatment. Technology and techniques used include the use of high power dental microscopes, 3D digital radiography, irrigant activation (with ozone if requested), apex location, and ultrasonic devices.
Teeth that have previously been treated with a root canal sometimes develop new problems. If so, an endodontic retreatment can often correct the problem and preserve the tooth.
Pulpal regeneration is an innovative technique that uses tissue engineering in young patients to treat underdeveloped tooth roots. The goal of pulpal regeneration is to restore the root canals to a healthy state, preventing the need for a root canal.
Thanks to new technologies such as the GentleWave Procedure and Ozone Therapy this technique can now be done on some adults, as well.
