A microscope can be an invaluable resource to the endodontist performing your root canal. As a matter of fact, root canal specialists often use microscopes to find and treat all of the canals inside the tooth.
The root canal procedure takes place in a very small area of the tooth and requires expert precision to effectively navigate the roots and canals. Some teeth may have more roots and canals than expected — missed canals can mean unresolved infections, which may eventually require another endodontic procedure, or even removal of the tooth.
The use of advanced microscopy technology by a trained root canal specialist can help make your root canal treatment successful, allowing you to keep your natural tooth for a lifetime!
