Dental treatment for root infections in Oslo
Root amputation is a dental treatment that is carried out when the root of the tooth is so damaged that it is not possible to preserve it. The treatment involves removing the root, while keeping the rest of the tooth. This is done to avoid further spread of the infection and to preserve the function of the tooth.

When is root amputation necessary?
Root amputation may be necessary when the tooth has developed deep caries or a root infection that cannot be treated with a root canal treatment. The infection can cause severe pain, swelling and even the spread of the infection to other parts of the body. Root amputation can prevent these complications and help preserve the tooth.
How is root amputation performed?
Root amputation is performed by the dentist removing the root of the tooth, and then filling the cavity with a special type of filling. The filling will help strengthen the tooth and restore its function. The treatment can be done under local anaesthetic, and the dentist will give you instructions on how to care for the tooth after the treatment.
What can I expect after root amputation?
After root amputation, you can expect some discomfort and swelling in the area around the tooth. This is normal and will subside within a few days. We will give you pain medication and instructions on how to care for the area while it heals. It is important to follow these instructions to ensure that the tooth heals optimally.
How long does it take to heal after root amputation?
The time it takes to heal after root amputation will depend on the condition of the tooth and how extensive the treatment was. In general, it will take a few weeks for the tooth to heal completely. During this period you should avoid hard food and take care of the tooth as you would with a normal filling.
