Root canal therapy is not an unfamiliar treatment for most people. It’s non-surgical, and despite the bad reputation it has been given in movies and TV, the reality is that there is no reason to be fearful of it, especially when performed by our best Hawaii endodontists. The goal is to remove the damaged or infected pulp and nerve, and then clean and disinfect the canals of the tooth, before sealing them off. It’s successful over 90% of the time, but in those other less common instances, there can be need for follow-up care due to re-infection or some other complication. Our best Hawaii endodontists offer root canal retreatment, which as the name suggests, is doing the procedure again, with an eye toward correcting the circumstances that caused the original root canal to fail. The other possibility is an apicoectomy, or root end surgery. This procedure removes the root tip and infected tissue. You can also count on us for treatment in addressing cracked teeth, traumatic injuries where the tooth becomes loose or totally free of its socket, and essentially any situation in which you have a toothache.
You don’t have to assume that an infected or damaged tooth is a lost cause. In many situations, an extraction can be avoided, along with the effort and cost involved with replacing the lost tooth. Call us to book an appointment and let our best Hawaii endodontists set about repairing your tooth and alleviating your pain.
