Root canal treatment
Endodontists work within conservative dentistry and are specialised dentists who treat and maintain teeth which are already necrotic or at risk of becoming so. They study root canal procedures and techniques. Root canal treatment is just as important as filling and with its help we are able to maintain teeth for a longer period of time.
The treatment begins with a complete cleaning of the injured areas of the tooth and is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. The Endodontist then pulls out the infected tissue in the dental pulp and any nerve tissue of the root. He then clears the site in preparation for the root canal filling. As soon as the tooth is correctly prepared he fills the root canal and seals the opening with a primary temporary filling.
Microscopic root canal treatment
When you need it:
Replacing old root canal
Greater cavity in the tooth
A larger piece broken from tooth
The purpose of microscopic root canal treatment is to keep the tooth for a long term period.
With this procedure, teeth can be preserved for a lifetime. Microscopic root canal treatments are among the most accurate interventions.
With the microscopic root canal treatment we can create a very accurate diagnosis and easily map, clean, disinfect and cover up all those root canals which can be hardly seen to the naked eye.
The microscopic treatment can also be used to remove old root canals. The tooth loss is minimal.
Root canal treatment is not a painful intervention, but for the first time we will definitely give you anaesthetic to avoid any inconvenience.
Because microscopic root canal treatment is one of the most accurate treatments, it is also time consuming. A treatment lasts about 1-2 hours, depending on the number of root canals. The total treatment is 1-3 occasions. In our dental surgery, microscopic dental treatment is done with Labomed Prima Mu dental microscope.
The process of the treatment:
- x-ray or a 3D CT if needed
- applying Kofferdam rubber pad to isolate the tooth which will be treated
- explore the root canal with a microscope, then clean it with special disinfectants
- opening the dental pulp or removing old filling under microscopic magnification and drug closure if needed
- electrical measurement
