Root canals are tiny passageways that extend from beneath the top of the tooth to the tip of the root. A root canal procedure treats advanced tooth decay, traumatic injury, or untreated cavities that involve infections that spread to the inside of the tooth.
Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a high success rate for halting the spread of infection, restoring the healthy portion of the tooth, and preventing the need for extraction.
We offer root canal treatments that involve advanced technology such as BioLase water laser endodontics for canal enhancement, debridement, and sterilization. BioLase endodontics feels more comfortable than traditional methods. BioLase is also said to require less healthy tooth structure removal and promote better filling attachment. At Heathcote Dental, we value technological advancements that make procedures more comfortable and more accurate for our patients.
