Endodontic (Root Canal Therapy)

 

Conventional Endodontic

When a tooth has been deeply decayed, theremay be pain and/or an infection in the root canal system. Instead of extracting the tooth, the tooth can be saved by endodontic therapy (a root canal).

Retrograde Endo Surgery

When the nerve of a tooth is infected and conventional endodontics is not an option, the tooth can be saved by retrograde endodontic micro-surgery by performing a root canal from the top of the tooth.

Intentional Re-Implantation

Sometimes conventional endodontics and retrograde endodontic micro-surgery are not options when the nerve of a root is infected and the patient experiences pain. Short of pulling the tooth and replacing it with an implant, the tooth can be saved by performing the Intentional Re-Implantation micro surgery. The infected tooth is extracted from the patient’s mouth, surgery is performed outside of the patient’s mouth, and the tooth is then re-implanted back into the patient’s mouth.

Hemisection

When a molar needs root canal but one root is unsalvageable, a hemisection can be done. Instead of removing the entire tooth, Dr Suen can cut off and extract the unsalvageable root and perform root canal on the remaining root.
