Bay Endodontics Treatments:
Bay Endodontics specialises in endodontic (root canal) treatments and offers a full range of treatments including;
Conventional Root Therapy - opening the crown then cleaning and shaping the pulp chambers and canals before sealing the tooth for the healing process.
Re-treatment - in a small number of cases patients still feel pain after treatments, in this case re-treatment is necessary involving removal of old materials.
Apical Surgery - performed in less than 2% of cases, removing the tips of roots or surrounding bone due to resistant infection, also used to repair roots damaged due to chronic infection.
Pulp Preservation - pulp is responsible for most of the early growth in teeth, direct capping of pulp following trauma helps preserve the vitality of teeth.
Bleaching - internally bleaching discoloured teeth in order to match other teeth.
