Endodontic Referral Services
Invitation to Refer
With the aid of increased illumination and microscope magnification, endodontic management of teeth moves away from trying to manage a complex space in a tooth through a small dark hole to a predictable precise intervention. The nerve spaces inside teeth can be visualised all the way to the apex in many cases allowing thorough identification and disinfection of the pulpal system.
I would welcome referrals of patients requiring assistance managing primary treatment, retreatment or surgical cases and can be flexible with how you would like individual cases managed. Should you just want orifices of canals located and the disinfection started so obturation can be performed in your clinic or the tooth endodontically managed and a cuspal coverage definitive restoration provided I am happy to support you in the management of your patient then refer back for definitive treatment or ongoing care.
If you have any queries about cases, please don’t hesitate to call me or send me an email: [email protected].
