Root Canal Or Endodontics

By: Smileway Dental

Endodontics also known as root canal treatment is a procedure where teeth with irreversible damage or infection are treated to remove the cause of the infection and restore the teeth to its functional condition.

In the event where teeth is damaged or infected, there will be manifestation of symptoms and findings such as pain, swelling, pus leaking from gums, bad breath and even discoloured tooth. These conditions will require root canal to help retain original teeth in the oral cavity and prevent replacement of missing teeth with artificial counterparts. Saving the teeth with root canal is better as you are able to reuse your original teeth once treatment is completed successfully. By cleaning out infected materials and bacteria from the root of your teeth, healing is able to take place in a sterile environment which will slowly return the teeth and surrounding structures to its functional condition and allow you to eat and speak normally.

However, some root canals may not be able to last a lifetime and may need to be retreated to prevent the subsequent infection of the tooth. With each additional root canal treatment, success of the treatment reduces as bacteria are able to resist the treatment and will remain persistent even after treatment. In this event, a treatment called apicectomy is required to remove infected parts of the root and allow the bone and surrounding structures to heal normally.

Prevention is always better than cure. At Smileway Dental, we believe that early detection and treatment is able to prevent further progression of dental pathologies and help maintain a healthy smile. Creating smiles that matter. In Smileway Dental Clinic USJ and Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak we take care of your smile because we believe in โ€œCreating Smiles That Mattersโ€ in your life. Take care everyone.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
