Root Canal Therapy
Symptoms of infection of the pulp can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
This form of endodontic surgery can be used to treat things such as micro-fractures or hidden canals, damaged root surfaces, or its surrounding bone.
In cases of trauma or caries, the discoloration begins from inside of the tooth and spreads outwards. Unlike traditional tooth whitening, where whitening agents are applied to the outside of the tooth, internal bleaching is completed from the inside out.
