When Endodontic treatment is necessary, the following procedures are regularly performed by Dr. Batniji, and our Endodontic teams in order to prevent the loss of a tooth. The actual procedures involve removing infected or damaged tissue and/or abscess from inside a tooth and cleaning, filling and sealing the remaining space. Most teeth can be treated Endodontically. Occasionally, a tooth can’t be saved because the root canals are not accessible, the root is severely fractured, the tooth doesn’t have adequate bone support, or the tooth cannot be restored. However, advances in Endodontics are making it possible to save teeth that even a few years ago would have been lost. In addition, when Endodontic treatment is not effective, Endodontic surgery may be able to save the tooth.

Initial Endodontic procedure to remove infected or damaged tissue and/or abscess. During Endodontic treatment an opening is made through the crown (the top of the tooth). Tiny instruments are then used to remove the damaged tissue from the canals. The canals are then shaped to a form that will be easy to fill. When completely clean and free to infection, the root canals are filled and sealed with a material that prevents bacteria from reentering. SEE MORE
Occasionally a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy fails to heal or may even continue to cause pain. Sometimes a tooth responds to root canal therapy but becomes painful or diseased month or years later. When this happens, the tooth often can be saved with a second Endodontic treatment. The tooth will be reopened and the canals cleaned, filled and sealed again.SEE MORE
The most common Endodontic surgical procedure is called an apicoectomy or root end resection. When inflammation or infection persists in the bony area around the end of your tooth after Endodontic treatment, an apicoectomy may be needed. In cases of very narrow, curved, or hardened canals the gum tissue near the tooth is opened to expose the underlying bone. The very end of the root is removed, and a small filling is placed to seal the root canal. a few stitches are placed to help the healing process.SEE MORE
In order to perform root canal therapy, the root needs to be completely formed. Apexification is a procedure performed to stimulate root growth. This procedure is usually recommended for younger patients whose roots have not fully developed. In this case, the nerves are removed from the canals and an application of calcium hydroxide is used to medicate and initiate the apex closure in order to complete the tooth development.SEE MORE
When dental pulp is exposed and the root is not completely developed, pulp capping is performed to preserve the vitality of a tooth. In this procedure, the exposed pulp is covered with a medicated dressing that is placed directly onto the surface of vital pulp tissue at the site of the pulpal exposure and protects the pulp tissue and keeps the tooth healthy. development.SEE MORE

To understand why you need endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Teeth are composed of three layers, the outer enamel, the inner dentin and the innermost layer, the pulp. T SEE MORE
Although initial root canal treatment was successfully completed the tooth may sometimes fail to heal. The tooth may become painful or diseased months or even years after successful treatment due to various reasons:SEE MORE
Usually, a tooth that has undergone a root canal can last the rest of your life and never need further endodontic treatment. But if symptoms persist even after successful non-surgical endodontic treatment your endodntist may advise surgery to save your tooth. Sometimes calcium deposits make a canal too narrow for the instruments used in root canal treatment requiring a surgical procedure to treat an infection or inflammation in the bony area around the end of your tooth.
