Endodontics on a single visit: Currently 90% of all treatments are on a single visit, with only 10% requiring two or three sessions depending on the case.
Apexification/Apicoformation: a procedure performed at the root of the tooth in order to keep it from extraction when infection is present and the root is not fully formed.
Apexogenesis: It is a procedure performed in children in order to save the tooth when the nerve is “alive” and the root of the tooth is not formed.
Endodontic Surgery: It is the last option to save a tooth. It consists of removing the apex (root tip) that is infected by bacteria and thus creating problems at the bone.
Retreatment: This is when root canal treatment is inconclusive or incomplete as the tooth pulp was not removed completely, and the piece is infected and at risk of being lost. To avoid the loss of the tooth it needs retreating.
Extraction of third molars: performed in patients who need braces and have been indicated the extraction of wisdom teeth, due to bad position etc.
Radisectomy: It is some kind of minor surgery done on one of the molars when one of the roots is damaged, while the other is in good condition. Half of the tooth is cut and the other half is kept for later restoring.
Removal of posts: Removal of any pin or post that is misplaced or that is inconsistent with the thickness of the root, as this can cause a hole in it and thus prevent endodontic treatment.
Endo-Periodontal Problems: In cases when the tooth has a nerve and gum disease, causing the tooth to begin to loosen and may show oozing through the gum as the nerve is dead and needs to be removed.
Emergency: Any emergency treatment of patients with acute pain caused by trauma, accidents, strokes, facial swelling, etc.
Preparations for Posts: When a tooth needs a pin or post, this must be placed by the endodontist (depending on the case), who is the specialist and the one who knows best about the roots of the teeth so as not to cause a hole in the root.
Placing posts and stump: when a tooth is extremely damaged and tissue is not enough for a crown to grab onto, a pin or post is to be placed and we must reconstruct the damaged part with a special material and then restore it.
Care of dental trauma: When an adult or a child has suffered an accident or a fall and presents some tooth trauma.
Assessment and Diagnosis of Cases: When a patient or colleague is not satisfied with a diagnosis and needs a second opinion on a particular case.
