The root canal treatment involves the removal of infected pulp and replacement with filling material that is safe.
Innovative approach arises such as reinforcement of filling material with nano-diamond particles including antibiotics.
This results in complete removal of bacteria increasing the success rate of root canal treatment.


Another innovative approach for healing is ozone therapy.
The ozone is helpful in eradication of microbes .
Aids in healing and sterile structures free of microbes.
