Biological dentist, Dr. Titania Tong of Central HK, proudly offers root canal treatment to save the natural tooth

What is root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, is a treatment used to save the structure of a natural tooth and eliminate the need to extract the tooth. This procedure is done right in the dental office and has several benefits. Root canal therapy:
- Saves a natural tooth
- Eliminates the cost of replacement with implants, bridges, or dentures
- Uses biocompatible materials to keep the tooth healthy
- Is performed with proper anesthetic for a pain free procedure
The procedure requires the dentist to access the inner portion of the tooth. Dr. Titania Tong then removes the inner mass of tissues called the dental pulp. It is very important to disinfect the inner parts of the roots to thoroughly eliminate as much bacteria as possible to prevent recurring infection. To this end Dr. Tong uses non chemical ozonized water and ozone gas to disinfect the canal system. Finally the canals are sealed by a biocompatible filling material. The tooth can then be restored by using composite resin filling or ultimately the stronger prosthesis of a dental crown. The entire process can be done quickly and easily over a few visits in the office.
