An endodontic procedure usually involves root canal treatments, where the nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed and the inner tooth is cleaned thoroughly and then sealed. Endodontic procedures may be necessary in the cases of tooth trauma, heavy tooth decay, cracks and injuries that result in inflammation and ultimately infection. If left untreated these cases may result in an abscess of the tooth’s root and enormous pain.
At My Dentist St Leonards in North Sydney, we conduct all endodontic procedures, including root canals, repositioning of dislodged teeth, fractures, tooth chips and apisectomies. Our professional team ensures that these procedures are executed with precision and care.
These treatments often take more than one visit, depending on the condition of the tooth.
