Endodontic Treatments

The Greek word for “tooth” is “odont” and the Greek work for “inside” is “endo”. Endodontic treatment focuses on the inside of the tooth. One type of endodontic treatment for a tooth is root canal treatment.

  • Non-surgical root canal therapy – a procedure to remove diseased pulp, thoroughly clean the canals and fill and seal the space before final restoration.

  • Endodontic retreatment – a procedure to remove existing material from previous root canal treatment, clean canals, fill and seal the space before final restoration.
