The best they could do, he said was to wait and see if this now dead tooth
would work itself out enough at some point so that it could be safely pulled.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists say they have made an epoch-making advancement towards the next big treatment revolution in dentistry - the era in which root canal therapy brings diseased teeth back to life, rather than leaving a "non-vital" or dead tooth
in the mouth.
USM researchers aimed to address this issue with NanoSeal Plus, which has a similar structure to the tooth and actively seals the small gaps within the dead tooth
, reducing the chances of a future infection.
In the case of endodontic therapy, or root canal, the dead tooth
lacks a blood supply to its interior.
