Root canal treatment

Endodontics

Root canal treatment at the highest, world level is done in a simple and effective way! This happens in the rubber dam (special gum surrounding the tooth, thanks to which it is treated in clean conditions), enlarged (using dental lupes or dental microscope) and using the new generation of Reciproc® files. These files are made in a new and innovative way, which makes them extremely flexible. That flexibility makes it even better and safer to develop the canal surface. A revolutionary method of working with the use of the oscillating motion allows for very effective treatment! The magnification provides the dentist with a better insight into the root canal system, which prevents the canal from being omitted, poorly developed, perforation (holes in the tooth) or tooth fractures. In addition, rinse liquids are activated by ultrasound, which increases their effectiveness in eliminating bacteria from the canal system. After each treatment, x-ray images of the tooth are taken with the help of radiovisiography in the office to control the filling of the canals.

Root canal treatment under a microscope

Root canal treatment (endodontics) is the method of choice in the treatment of irreversible pulpitis and periapical tissue diseases. It consists of: removing the cause of the disease, pathologically changed pulp from the chamber and root canal of the tooth and filling the canal with the appropriate material. At present, microscopes obtain an enlargement of the operating field from 3 to 30 times, and some manufacturers offer microscopes with a magnification of up to 40 times. The percentage of cured cases is very large in the teeth without periapical changes and / or when the cause of pulpitis is recognized and corrected. High magnification achievable under the microscope is necessary i.a. to detect cracks in the crown and the bottom of the chamber. In addition, it is useful when finding outlets of channels and also searching for additional root canals. The microscope is used to develop the obliterated channels (closed by the mineralized tissue) when the traditional method fails. This is the best way to perform a re-endo treatment because it allows you to avoid mistakes or to avoid the difficulties encountered with the primal root canal treatment. The microscope also helps in detecting and securing perforations or resorbtion. However, the most common use of the microscope is the removal of broken instruments from the central or apical portion of the root canal. Working with the use of a microscope increases the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment, and definitely extends therapeutic options. The surgical microscope contributed to the improvement of the effectiveness of conservative treatment of chronic changes of periapical tissues. It has been estimated that more than two-thirds of the changes subject repeated root canal treatment. The most important advantage of properly performed root canal treatment is the elimination of pain after intervention or a few days after.
