Should I extract?
loose teeth, broken teeth, and teeth with melting bones due to periapical inflammation?

If the condition of natural teeth does not get better even after treating as best as possible, it’s not too late to extract teeth and choose implants at that time.

  Endodontic treatment and retreatment using dental LASER

  Periodontal treatment to remove even the calculus hidden in the gums 

  Occlusal adjustment to make stable occlusion

  Through all these methods, my precious teeth are treated.

Dental Clinic SOJOONG thinks of your teeth.
Think once more before extracting teeth. 

#Periapical inflammation # Gingival inflammation # Loose tooth

This is a loose tooth whose bone is melting due to severe periapical inflammation.

Endodontic treatment and periodontal treatment using LASER were performed together to treat inflammation and strengthen the loose tooth, and then finished treatment with a crown. (This is a real treatment case.) 

From microscopic treatment to dental laser treatment.
We do our best for the best treatment outcomes.

savetooth. Saving natural teeth?

Please tell me about savetooth treatment.

Savetooth treatment allows you to use your natural tooth that needs to be extracted due to problems with the root canal or the gum around the tooth for a longer period of time. Through this treatment, you can use your own tooth as much as possible by simultaneously performing endodontic retreatment of teeth that have already been treated with nerves, gum treatment, occlusion reconstruction, and prosthetic treatment. 

Can all teeth be treated?

Teeth with cracks in the root, teeth broken too deep, teeth that cannot be restored due to too much melted gingival bone, and teeth that cannot even be treated with prosthesis, which sets up a post, due to too severe cavities are unavoidably extracted.

Information for those who are very curious about the treatment process

 Endodontic Retreatment

If there is a problem with the tooth that has been treated once, the next treatment step is usually extraction. Normal endodontic treatment is not easy, and it is even more difficult for both the patient and the dentist to re-treat the tooth that has already completed endodontic treatment. 

Not all teeth that have been received endodontic treatment get better with retreatment. However, if it is determined that the cause of problem can be improved through retreatment, it is worth trying treatment.


Severe inflammation is observed at the tip of the molar root. It is a tooth that had previously completed endodontic treatment and crown treatment, but the root tip was infected. The front tooth is severely decayed and the condition after endodontic treatment is not good.


First, remove the previously treated crown and core.

Using a microscope, check the entrance to the previously treated area.

Most of the materials used in the previous treatment are severely contaminated.


Remove the contaminated material as much as possible. Since it can act as a source of bacterial infection, remove it thoroughly using a microscope. After removal, check the remaining part with X-rays, and if necessary, remove it repeatedly.

Disinfect several times to ensure that the inside of the root is clean, then fill the empty space again and complete endodontic treatment. If there are not many teeth remaining, reinforce the teeth by setting up a post.

This shows that the inflammation is almost cured.

In this condition, the tooth function can be restored by performing crown treatment again.

Crowns should also be manufactured as accurately as possible to avoid gaps.

치과용 미세 현미경

There is more than meets the eye

For treatment, we use dental microscopes to diagnose and treat even the areas invisible to the naked eye more precisely. Microscopes are used for almost all dental treatments, including cavity examination, endodontic treatment, apical surgery, resin treatment, and prosthetic treatment. 

치과용 레이저 (Lokki YAP LASER)

Cutting edge, Pain-free

This is a cutting edge dental LASER specialized in root canal and periodontal treatment. The Laser makes it possible to disinfect the root tip, which is hard to reach with instrument or drugs. It saves natural tooth, which were not treatable and had to be extracted in the past, as much as possible.


Find even the hidden calculus and remove it

Through the tactile recognition function, PerioScan can accurately find calculus we couldn’t see. It removes even the calculus hidden in the gums as painlessly as possible. Saving natural teeth starts with removing calculus to restore the gums.
