Endodontics or Root Canal is the process by which we may need to devitalize (remove the nerve) or clean out (remove bacteria) the inside of a tooth. Dr. Koutros has spent many years perfecting his endodontic techniques and teaching it to his colleagues.
With the technology available to Dr. Koutros today, root canals have become a quick and usually painless procedure.
It is important that the treatment is completed as soon as possible after diagnosis, as prolonging treatment will lead to increased bone destruction and the pain to heat, touch and pressure stimuli. With proper treatment and quickly restoring the strength of the tooth, you will be able to keep your tooth for many more years.
