Internal Root Perforation Repair

A perforation (or hole) in the root of your tooth can have a long-term effect on the health of your tooth and tissue around it. The perforation can happen naturally with root resorption or during a dental procedure (such as a root canal). Either way, a perforation in the tooth root should be addressed to avoid further complications.
