Root Canal Treatment

When the cavity extends beyond the Enamel and Dentin and progresses to the Pulp, it gives rise to severe pain. In such a situation, before a filling can be done the infection has to be removed from the canals of the tooth.
This treatment is called a Root Canal Treatment. The tooth is made numb so that there is no pain and the canals are cleaned out.
Root Canal Treatment is basically a Blind procedure because we can not visually see where we are working. Despite this the success rate is worth the while to save the tooth instead of getting it extracted.

Surgical Third Molar Extractions

As we are going through evolutions our jaw sizes are becoming smaller .
In a few generations, third molars will totally become extinct
