Saving the unsavable. At Smïl, we take pride in providing comprehensive endodontic care right here in our practice, ensuring you receive expert treatment while enjoying the comfort and convenience of familiar surroundings.

What is endodontic treatment?

Endodontics itself is a dental speciality associated with treating tooth roots and the dental pulp.

Endodontic treatment, often referred to as a root canal, is a dental procedure aimed at saving a severely infected or damaged tooth. It involves removing the infected pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and then filling and sealing them to prevent further infection.

Why would our dentists recommend endodontic treatment?

Our dentists in Chatham may recommend endodontic treatment when a tooth’s pulp becomes infected or inflamed. This can occur due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack or chip, or trauma to the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary to save the tooth from extraction and to alleviate severe pain and discomfort caused by the infection.

By removing the infected pulp, cleaning the root canals and sealing the tooth, endodontic treatment aims to preserve natural teeth and prevent the spread of infection to surrounding tissues.

What endodontic treatments do you provide?
