Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic Treatment

Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the hollows within a tooth that are inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and cells. All these items constitute the dental pulp.

Commonly known as root canal, endodontic treatment is a treatment sequence for the infected nerve of a tooth. Endodontic therapy is intended to eliminate infection. It involves the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the root canals with small files and irrigating solutions, and then the filling of the decontaminated canals with a gutta-percha and a biocompatible cement to protect the tooth from future bacterial invasion.

Prof. Alfred Naaman has more than 25 years in practicing and teaching root canal therapy and he will provide you with the best advice and results

Endodontic Surgery (apicectomy)

The purpose of apicectomy is to surgically excise infected tissue around a root canal-treated tooth. This minor surgery is performed when conventional root canal treatment is not possible or if infection continues to be a problem after root canal treatment.

Our experienced surgeons will perform this procedure when needed.
