Advanced root canal treatment

Why should I see the Dentist with Specialist Interest in Root Canal Treatment?

Every tooth is different – Some teeth have complex anatomy and molar teeth generally have more root canals than front teeth. A dentist with special interest in root canal treatments has the skill and training to treat difficult cases. Complex root anatomy involves:

  • Curved roots / anatomy
  • Very small canals that may be difficult to locate
  • Re – root canal treatment
  • Post Op root canal pain (pain after root canal treatment)
  • Fracture files in the root canals
  • Root perforations
  • Failing root canal treatments
  • Apicectomy – A minor surgical procedure to remove the top of the root of a dead tooth and then seal the end with a bio-compatible filling material

It may appear to be an easy treatment process but can be extremely challenging.
