Root Treatment Videos

Root Treatment

A filled or decayed tooth with an abscess.
The filling is removed to access the cavity.
The root canals are reamed to remove the tooth nerves.
Gutta-perchas are inserted to fill the root.
These are then cut-off, sealed and the tooth filled.
The abscess will reduce.
A crown may be necessary later.


Root Treatment (Multi)

Root treatments on back teeth can be more complicated …
… because they have a number of roots.
The root canals are exposed.
All roots then need to be excavated …
… making sure that the entire tooth nerve is removed.
The cavity is then filled with gutta percha …
… and the tooth then filled.
