Sometimes if a tooth is causing pain, or the damage extends deep within the tooth, root treatment can be the solution. Root treatments are a great way to get rid of the pain without the need to extract the tooth.
We first make sure that the tooth is very numb to rid you of any discomfort you may have been experiencing. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and filled. The procedure is very delicate and so is done very gently under magnification.
Afterwards, especially for back teeth, an onlay or crown may be recommended to protect the tooth from further breakages. This also makes sure that the filling within the root is well sealed in to prevent any further problems.
