Endodontics

Endodontics is concerned with the etiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pulp and peri-radicular diseases. Common causes of pulp and peri-radicular conditions include caries, cracks and dental trauma.
The Endodontic Unit provides endodontic treatments to conserve teeth that will otherwise have to be extracted, with the use of specialised equipment such as the dental operating microscope, ultrasonics and digital imaging. Endodontists are also trained to perform root canal treatments on teeth with complex dental anatomy or obstructed root canals, re-treatments of previously treated teeth and endodontic microsurgeries.
