Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If the pulp is inflamed or infected and is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
If you need a root canal treatment, one of our dentists or our Endodontist at GDNC (our specialist who treat disease or infection of the tooth pulp) will perform the treatment. Endodontic treatment can often be performed in one or two visits and involves the following steps:
In case there is a doubt about the diagnosis, a CT scan of the tooth can show the exact 3D anatomy of the complex root structure and in combination with a surgical microscope proper treatment results can be achieved.
I've been a client for 21 years! I'm an intrepid dentist visitor but have ALWAYS appreciated the care and professionalism administered by the BRILLIANT Doctor Nassouti. I'm only sorry i wont be able to take him home to Britain with me! THANK YOU for your continued care & dedication to my smile. You have always put my nerves at ease and maintained my confidence.
My phobia is extreme when it comes to the dentist. However coming to Dr. Jocelyne changed it all, she makes sure she explains everything she’s doing step by step to make me feel comfortable and not afraid. This experience is amazing. I love this place!!
Always thought taking out wisdom teeth was a whole ordeal! But Dr.Fadi is a magician and it took him 5 Seconds to get rid of my tooth. I haven’t felt any paint or even discomfort after! Recommend this clinic to anybody who’s dreading the wisdom teeth removal 5/5 !I haven’t felt any paint or even discomfort after!
