Shut down the root –
retain the tooth
A root treatment is required when a natural tooth is seriously endangered from an infection in the root canal. To ensure it is retained, the nerve tissue is removed. The classical method (removal using manual files) often leaves tissue residues in the root canal; we therefore use more modern methods. The cleaning of the root canal is done by machine with a rotating attachment which quickly, thoroughly and carefully removes the affected tissue. We would be happy to explain this safer method to you before treatment.
