Endodontics at Dental Studio | Dr Diane Boulos
Root canal therapy is a frequently performed dental procedure that is necessary to save a tooth when the dental pulp, which contains the tooth's nerve, becomes diseased or injured. Failure to treat this condition may lead to the development of infections and abscesses in the tissue surrounding the affected tooth.
In cases of acute tooth pain, which is among the most common dental emergencies, a root canal intervention is often necessary. It is essential to seek urgent dental care whenever acute or persistent tooth pain is experienced to prevent further complications.
At Dental Studio, We employ the latest advancements in technology to provide exceptional root canal therapy to our patients. With digital imaging techniques like cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and digital radiography, we are able to obtain precise 3D images of the tooth, allowing for more accurate diagnoses and treatment planning. Our use of lasers for disinfection and cleaning of the root canals ensures the removal of bacteria in hard-to-reach areas. Additionally, ultrasonic technology is utilized to clean canals thoroughly by using high-frequency vibrations to remove debris. These cutting-edge technologies are just some of the ways we are committed to providing high-quality, precise, and effective root canal therapy, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible care.

Why do i need a specialist in root canal treatment?
Root canal Retreatment
Root canal retreatment is a dental procedure utilized to thoroughly cleanse the canals of a previously treated tooth. The primary objective of retreatment remains identical to that of the initial root canal therapy, which is to eradicate all bacteria from the internal structure of the tooth and seal it off to provide permanent protection against any future infections. Retreatment is typically warranted when a tooth fails to heal as expected after the initial treatment or is susceptible to developing a new infection due to various reasons.
Should i save my tooth or get an implant?
In some circumstances, there may be a clear reason to replace compromised teeth with dental implants rather than attempt to restore them via root canal treatment and other procedures. For example, a series of failed treatments in the past, a doubtful prognosis, or the likelihood that multiple procedures will be necessary could argue in favor of implants.
