Endodontic treatments can simply help save your natural teeth, preventing the need for options such as dental implants or dental bridges. If you experience any problems such as fractures or hidden canals, you may find the solution through endodontics.
Many people are told that they either need an extraction or a surgical procedure, called an apicoectomy to fix a failing root canal. With 3D radiographs, microscopes and extensive experience in re-treatments, additional options are available here at Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic.
