Root amputation is used to save an injured or diseased tooth from extraction. It is only available in cases involving multi-root teeth, such as molars. By removing one damaged or diseased root, the tooth can remain otherwise intact and be restored to full function with a filling or crown.
Our Orlando doctor will advise you in more detail if root amputation is recommended for you. Contact Lake Nona Dental Implants and Periodontics for more information.
