Root Canals & Endodontic Treatments

Using the most modern technology available today Dr. Shaban and the team at Quincy High Care Dentistry is able to perform root canal therapy on virtually any tooth that requires it. Up until recently, many teeth had to be extracted because endodontic therapy was not as advanced as it is today. With the aid of high magnification and illumination, digital radiography, better techniques in instrumentation, we are much better able to diagnose and treat teeth that at one time were deemed hopeless. Additionally, most procedures are done in one visit with no discomfort at all!  So if you’re searching for an endodontist in the Quincy, MA area, look no further than Dr. Shaban and his team.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. All teeth have between one and four root canals.

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.

A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem.  However, inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess.

Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth; before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.
