A root canal is one of the most common, and safe, dental procedures performed today. There are over 14 million of these endodontic procedures performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Endodontic (root canal) surgery may be prescribed to treat residual infections and painful symptoms that persist following conventional endodontic procedures. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with a surgical procedure. The most common endodontic surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.

ROOT CANAL (ENDODONTIC) THERAPY
Has your dentist or endodontist told you that you need root canal treatment? Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with endodontic therapy.
Sometimes, a tooth that has been treated doesn’t heal properly and can become painful or diseased months or even years after treatment.
Endodontic (root canal) surgery may be prescribed to treat residual infections and painful symptoms that persist following conventional procedures.
Cracked teeth demonstrate many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivities, or even the release of biting pressure. It is also common for pain to come and go, making it difficult to diagnose the cause of discomfort.
Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports-related injuries. Chipped teeth account for the majority of all dental injuries. Dislodged or knocked-out teeth are examples of less frequent, but more severe injuries.
