Root Canals / Endodontics
The use of microscopes in root canals has revolutionized the field of endodontics. With a microscope, endodontists can get a close-up view of the inside of the tooth, which allows them to remove the damaged tissue and clean the area. This results in a more successful root canal procedure and a quicker, more comfortable recovery for the patient.
At South Shore Dental prosthetics, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch root canal and endodontic care. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect when you come in for a procedure:
