Root End Surgery
Even a tooth which has already decayed does not necessarily have to be removed. Your regular dentist can save a decaying tooth by filling its root canal. Root canals are located in the dental root and, in the case of a healthy tooth, contain blood vessels and nerves. Despite the careful execution of root canal procedures, bacteria are usually still able to accumulate on the root tip, which could then lead to inflammation.
A root end surgery cleans the area around the tip of the tooth by removing all inflammatory areas of the tooth and the inflamed tissue at the root tip. We carry out this procedure using microscope magnification in order to see precisely all of the details in the root canals. In some cases, a laser sterilization as an additional measure will be considered together with the classic disinfection of the area. Finally, the root canals are then closed tightly.
