Endodontics Services at Ortega Dental Care
Teeth with slight or moderate infections can be saved with root canal therapy. With the new techniques in dentistry root canal therapies have better prognosis than before. Teeth with moderate infections will be treated in two separate appointments with two weeks interval.
With the invention of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA), we can reverse back almost 50 percent of teeth that used to be treated endodontically. MTA is medication that is placed inside the nerve canals that decreases the swelling of tooth nerve. Our Dentists believe that they must do everything to prevent Root Canal therapy (RCT) therefore increasing the lifespan and strength of our dentition.
Please ask your dentist about his/her experience with MTA. Your tooth can be saved with this new revolutionary treatment option in more than 50% of the times.
