Root Canal Treatment

Modern endodontic treatment

Endodontics

Endodontic treatment, also called root canal treatment, is the removal of the dental pulp and the tight sealing of the root canals.

The dental pulp is the soft tissue in the dental canals, found in the roots of the teeth. The dental pulp is the one that “feeds” the tooth and it’s very important that we try and preserve its vitality. Sometimes, the pulp suffers from swelling and its removal becomes a necessity – otherwise, it would lead to dental infections.

Root canal treatment can also be necessary even if the pulp is healthy. For example, when there is the need to cover a tooth with a dental crown. The grinded tooth can became painfull.

Dental treatments have evolved at the same pace as modern technology has. This also applies to endodontics. Modern endodontic treatments offer superior comfort to the patient due to the fact that they are not painful and the length of a session is smaller than in the case of classic endodontic treatments. Furthermore, the rate of success is significantly higher.

Modern treatments mean that the tooth is perfectly isolated, the pulp is removed and the exact lengths of the root canals are measured. The canals are then widened, sterilized and sealed.

Phases of endodontic treatment in our clinic

HOW DO WE WORK?

During canal treatment, the tissue inside the root, as well as any bacteria, is removed and the inside of the root is cleansed and sealed. This type of treatment requires both time and an experienced physician and high performance equipment.
Because the root canals of a tooth have a lot of small branches, they can only be seen under a microscope. The dental microscope together with the other modern techniques and equipment allow the optimal preparation and sealing of root canals and, consequently, the success rate of the endodontic treatment also increases.
The dental microscope allows precise visual monitoring throughout the entire treatment.
Isolating the tooth. Our dental clinic uses a modern isolation system – the rubber dam. The rubber dam is a rubber sheet that ensures a perfect isolation of the working area. No intraoperative saliva contamination can take place, the accidental insertion of foreign material in the patient’s mouth is avoided, the risk of swallowing or inhaling the small instrument is prevented, the soft parts (tongue, mouth and gums) are protected, caustic irrigation solutions that taste bad don’t touch the patient’s mouth and the dentist has excellent visibility.
Removing the pulp. The pulp is removed from the root canals with the help of special manual needles and/or a dental laser. Dental laser uses a handle specially designed for root canal sterilization
Measuring the canal lengths. It is essential to treat the full length of the root canals. To do this, we use the most efficient measuring system – the RootZx apex finder from Morita.
Preparing the canals. In the modern perspective of endodontics, root canals are artificially widened so they can be more efficiently cleaned. To do this, rotary instrumentation is used.
The dentist does not “intervene” on the canals with backwards and forwards motions using a needle held in the hand, but rather uses rotary instrumentation, which is very resistent and very flexible. The canals are thus better prepared than by using a manual method.
Canal obturation. In order to obturate root canals, our clinic uses a 3D wireless liquid Gutta percha system – Elements free. The three-dimensional root canal obturation method is very efficient because it ensures an excellent sealing of both the canals and the secondary canals, it prevents later microbial infiltrations so that no infection can appear, and is quicker to do than the classic obturation.
