The procedure of a root canal is quiet simple, an opening in the tooth is made.
The diseased pulp and canal are removed and cleaned. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a
filling. Sometimes a crown is placed on a broken tooth to restore its natural form and appearance
Occasionally, a nonsurgical root canal procedure alone cannot save your tooth and your endodontist will recommend surgery. Endodontic surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals that weren't detected on x-rays or during previous treatment. Surgery may also be needed to remove calcium deposits in root canals, or to treat damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone of the tooth. To learn more about endodontic surgery, talk to an endodontist in your area.

Many endodontists use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation and fiber optics, to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.
Most endodontists offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and patients can be relieved of dental pain quickly.
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Endodontists are dental specialists with an additional two or more years of specialised training beyond dental school. The average endodontist completes 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists do about two root canals a week.
