Root canal therapy
Root canal treatment - Endodontic treatment
Root canal treatment is necessary when the damage to the tooth is so deep that bacteria enter the so-called pulp and cause tooth death and inflammation.
EuroDent specializes in endodontic treatment with and without the use of a microscope. Thanks to the treatment of the tooth, we do not have to extract it, which has an impact on the comfort of eating and aesthetics.
Endodontics allows you to enjoy the dentition for longer, even in the case of significant cavities.
If the tooth has cavities, the symptoms that indicate an endodontic consultation are:
– tooth soreness and hypersensitivity;
– gingival swelling;
– tooth darkening;
– weakening of the tooth manifested by its cracking or crushing.
Root canal treatment course
Root canal treatment is a process that requires very high accuracy and good eyesight from the dentist, therefore special loupes or a microscope are used during treatment. The root canal treatment is preceded by an X-ray scan to diagnose the condition of the tooth. At EuroDent, endodontic procedures are performed under local anesthesia and are painless. Depending on the tooth and conditions, the procedure may take even more than an hour.
After cleaning the tooth, the dentist has to find the tooth canals, clean them with endodontic tools and disinfect them. Then the channels are dried and filled with liquid material, the so-called gutta-percha. After performing these activities, the visible part of the tooth is rebuilt with composite materials or a crown is made, the purpose of which is to restore the aesthetics and appearance of the natural tooth.
