Endodontics is basically the treatment of tooth pulp problems.
Damage to the pulp due to cracks or deep cavities, that reach down to the nerve tissue and blood vessels residing in the soft pulp of the tooth can lead to painful swelling, however, dentists use a procedure called a root canal to restore and protect the tooth's nerves and blood vessels hence saving the tooth.
Endodontic Treatment also removes bacterial infection from tooth and also prevents further spread of infection throughout tooth, to periapical tissue and surrounding bone .
Facilities at Carvalho's Dental Clinic:
High technology machines are provided in our dental clinic to reduce our patients' exposure to dental x-rays during endodontic treatment.
The Root Apex locator aids our endodontist in defining the length of the teeth to ensure a better prognosis and increase the long term success rate.
