Endodontic treatments we perform at McOmie Family Dentistry
Dr McOmie performs root canals, pulpectomies, and pulpotomies.
A pulpectomy or pulpotomy is more common when saving a primary tooth in a child. This is done to protect the underlying permanent tooth and maintain the alignment, which can prevent orthodontic intervention in the future.
Root Canal Treatment, Endodontic Surgery
Once a tooth is abcessed, the only option to prevent extraction is a root canal. When there is enough tooth to save, it is nice to keep what you have to prevent bone loss and shifting of the bite. A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures that can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
