Root canal treatment at Hope Dental Clinic: three case reports

AG Kasongo

Abstract


Acute dental pain is the most distressing symptom with which the majority of patients attending dental clinics present. It is a clinical problem to which a range of treatment interventions may be appropriate.
In Tanzania, extraction is the most commonly reported treatment option for acute dental pain although most of them would have been saved by endodontic treatment. This paper presents three cases of endodontic treatment performed at Hope Dental Clinic, Mwanza Tanzania. In all cases, patients indicated obvious preference for saving teeth through endodontic therapy.

Key words: root canal treatment, case report
