Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy in Lima, Peru

Endodontics is a dental specialty dealing with tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Endodontics involves many procedures such as root canal therapy, treating cracked teeth and dental trauma. The signs of root canal problems are familiar: severe pain, swelling, sensitivity to hot or cold water or a darkening tooth.  At our Lima dental clinic, you will be surprised how comfortable modern root canal therapy can be.

Each tooth is like a small organism. It has canals running through a pulp that provides nourishment to your teeth. Canals can become damaged either by a cavity or a tooth fracture, and the pulp may get infected and die. The procedure at our Lima dental clinic is simple: cleaning out the canals, filling them in and putting a custom CEREC crown atop.

The signs of root canal problems are familiar: severe pain, swelling, sensitivity to hot or cold water or a darkening tooth. 

Smiles Peru uses digital x-rays (allowing for a more accurate and faster process) and the X-Smart endodontic micromotor which shortens the procedure time, allowing for increased patient comfort and less dentist fatigue.  As with all procedures done at Smiles Peru, root canals are done by a specialist in the field, and can be done under nitrous oxide sedation if uncomfortable. You can discuss your comfort level with our experienced dentists and ensure a quick and painless procedure.
