Case Study: Large and Deep Tooth Decay

Simon visited our Sydney dental practice expressing his discomfort regarding an ache related to his top left molar.

Dr Elkhatib recommended root canal treatment because the tooth could be successfully restored and still serve the patient for many years to come without any problems. As you can see in the below image during his procedure, decay had infiltrated the tooth which explains the severe pain Simon had been experiencing. The dark shade on the last image shows the decay below the tooth’s surface.

A root canal was performed and the tooth was filled with a tooth coloured filling to ensure its ability to chew and speak normally and comfortably.
