Mr Raj Roy

FRACDS Endodontist

Raj is our visiting Specialist Endodontist. Raj travels from Hamilton twice a month to treat patients with complicated Root Canal issues. This treatment is used after the nerve in a tooth has died. It is the only way of saving the tooth. The only other option when a tooth dies is an extraction which often leads to other complications later in life. Root Canal therapy is the treatment of the inside of a tooth. Fine canals in the tooth contain the nerve and blood supply for the tooth. If a tooth dies these canals become infected from the dead tissue. Raj, with the help of a very powerful microscope, can access and fill these canals. This means the tooth can stay in place, as a result other teeth are not compromised by extraction.
