General odontology



Endodontics is a sequenced nerve treatment of a tooth in order to clear the infection usually caused by a deep cavities and protect the tooth from future bacterial attacks.

Root canal therapy procedure

  • First Nerve tissues, blood vessels and other cells are removed from the canals in the roots of a tooth.
  • Second : The inside of the tooth roots (canals) are cleaned and shaped with small files. They are also watered with disinfectant solutions.
  • Third - The root canals are filled with an inert filler such as gutta-percha and a cement to block all future bacterial attacks.
After treatment

After endodontics, the tooth will be "dead" and, if the infection continues and is located at the tip of the root, an apicoectomy will be required.

This treatment is painless if done correctly and sometimes it takes multiple appointments to properly clean and seal the roots.

After root canal, the tooth loses all its natural hydration and becomes very brittle. This can make a tooth more prone to fracture, especially if the tooth is a molar where most of the bite forces are concentrated. For this reason, dentists we recommend a porcelain crown depending on the case to protect teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
