Root Canal Treatment
Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows, and filling of the decontaminated canals.
Endodontic retreatment describes a dental root canal procedure that is carried out on a tooth that has previously had root canal treatment.
Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports-related injuries. Dislodged or knocked-out teeth are examples of severe injuries. Treatment depends on the type, location and severity of each injury. Sometimes, neighboring teeth suffer an additional, unnoticed injury that will only be detected by a thorough dental exam.
Treatment of immature teeth in Children
Apexification is the process of inducing closure of an open root tip of an endodontically treated tooth. Open root tips are generally found in teeth that are not fully developed or eroded by a process called root resorption.
Apexogenesis is a pulp therapy performed to encourage continued physiological formation and development of the tooth root.
