Restoring your smile can greatly enhance the function of your mouth
When a tooth is lost it greatly impacts all aspects of your mouth; teeth begin to shift, gums become withdrawn and the jawbone material directly under the gap begins to dissolve. This is why it is important to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible, as weakened teeth can impact your speech and also restrict the types of foods you can eat.

Microscopes provide clearer, and more detailed views of your tooth during your root canal treatment. Their use also brings with it several other benefits. Namely:
Improved treatment quality. Microscopic techniques are generally superior than traditional treatment methods as they take it a step further by allowing your dentist a clearer view of the procedure and the state of your root canals.
Ideal treatment ergonomics: The use of a dental microscope allows your dentist to maintain appropriate working posture and ergonomics. This is important in maintaining the dentist’s health and personal wellbeing.
Greater patient satisfaction: Not only do microscopes provide benefits for the dentist, but also the patient. This is because they facilitate superior treatment, yielding better results in comparison to traditional root canal therapies.
No. Not all dental practices make use of microscopes during root canal treatments. However, Extreme Dentistry appreciates the value which these deliver and prioritise providing superior treatment to all our patients. Hence our decision to utilise microscopes during our root canal procedures.
There are certain signs that indicate the need for root canal. These include:
- Continuous pain
- Extreme or prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold
- Discomfort when chewing
- Discoloration of a tooth
- Facial swelling
Sometimes, however, you may have no symptoms at all! This is why we urge patients to keep to regular check-up appointments with the dentist.
Sometimes botched dental work can be obvious, other times, not. Research what recovery is supposed to look like after your procedure to give you a good idea of what is normal and what is not. If you have any concerns, you can revisit your original dentist to see if there are any complications (if you are comfortable to do so.) You may, however, opt to receive a second opinion if something doesn’t feel quite right after your procedure.
The first thing you should do is visit a trusted dentist who can asses the situation and determine the best course of action. A reliable dentist will be able to correct the physical damage. You may need to give yourself some time to overcome the emotional trauma and distress after a botched dental procedure.
Dental malpractice is a very serious offence. However, each case is individual. The best thing to do is to seek legal advice from an attorney who specialises in cases like these to determine whether or not you have a solid case. From there, you will be advised on the best course of action you can take (legally)
