If you have a tooth that needs root canal therapy, you will want to come to our office where you will be able to be treated by an excellent and highly trained endodontist. At Apex Endodontics, our expert endodontist, Dr. Michael Sang Ro, is able to provide you with the very finest Norwood endodontic surgery.
When a tooth is infected or damaged in the center where the pulp resides, this problem will never be able to be corrected unless you have root canal therapy. If root canal therapy is not performed by our endodontist, the tooth will either fall out on its own, or need to be extracted. It is never a wise idea to leave an infected tooth alone in your mouth, because infection from the tooth can travel to other parts of your mouth or even to other parts of your body. For this reason it is important to have Norwood endodontic surgery whenever you have an infected tooth. Endo surgery is the only way an infected tooth can be saved.
Norwood endodontic root canal surgery is successful in over 90% of cases. Once our endodontist has a chance to review your individual situation, he will be able to let you know the likelihood that the Endo surgery will be successful. He will also be able to let you know root canal therapy can be performed in one or two office visits. During the root canal surgery, our endodontist will remove all infected pulp from the center of the tooth, and thoroughly clean the tooth and root canal system. The tooth and system will then be sealed so that bacteria will not be allowed to reenter it. At some later point, you will need to probably get a porcelain crown to strengthen and further protect the tooth from repeated infection. There are times when a root canal procedure is not completely successful. In these cases, you will need to have an endodontic retreatment at our endodontic office. If you ever need endodontic treatment, you will want to come to our office where we use the most modern equipment and procedures to ensure that your root canal treatment is as comfortable and as successful as possible. The comfort and safety of our patients is always our number one concern. If you have hard to diagnose oral and facial pain, our endodontist will be able to help you with this as well.
