Endodontics awareness campaign launch

Leading professionals from British Dental Health Foundation are launching the Saving Teeth Awareness Campaign ( www.savingteeth.co.uk ).  Promoted by the widespread lack of awareness amongst patients that many teeth can be saved by endodontics (treatment of diseases of the tooth root, dental pulp, and surrounding tissue).

According to the Adult Dental Health Survey, two million teeth were removed last year but only around half a million root treatment were undertaken.  In the interests of dental health, if the natural tooth can be saved through root canal therapy and adequately restored, it should be the first choice.

Here at Higher Lane Dental we have the microscope which is required to see the very fine root canal, we have practiced endodontics for many years and are fully supportive of this campaign.
