We use the most up to date technology and materials

Each tooth has an inner well protected core of living soft tissues which is called the tooth pulp. It contains the nerves and the blood supply to the tooth . If this pulp is exposed or loses its vitality due to decay or tooth fracture or even a strong blow to the face . It starts to inflame then eventually dies. Later on, the tooth gets infected and creates an abscess under its roots . Any of these stages could be very painful with almost no pain killer can fully eliminate the pain.

Root Canal Therapy could be the answer to any of these situations. The dentist gets the tooth numb first, then painlessly creates a small hole through the tooth and removes the infected or inflamed pulp tissue and clean the inside of the tooth and fill the space with sealer material which could have some antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties.

The procedure is highly technical and sensitive one. Proudly we are using the most up to date technology and materials with long experience with “modern” root canal therapy with very high success rate.
