A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. During root canal therapy, the injured tooth pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction. Occasionally, this non-surgical procedure will not be sufficient. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. Endodontic surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain.
