We carry out the treatment using a microscope or dental magnifiers in order to to cure teeth that would previously be doomed to be removed. Thanks to this advanced technology, we can better diagnose the tooth, find invisible additional root canals on the RVG picture and carry out each stage of treatment with much greater precision.
In root canal treatment we use a modern solution – EndoPilot from the German company Schlumbohm, which allows for precise treatment of hard-to-reach root canals.
The duration of endodontic treatment depends on tooth anatomy, that is the number of root canals found and their course.
1. Anesthesia and RVG,
2. Measuring the length of the canals using an endometer,
3. Cleaning the chamber and tooth canals with the use of hand and machine tools,
4. Disinfection with ultrasound and chemical preparation,
5. Filling the canals with biocompatible material,
6. Checking the RVG filling,
7. Reconstruction of the damaged crown of the tooth.
When do you need to treat a root canal?
When the tooth is heavily damaged by caries, there is inflammation of the pulp which is in the middle of the tooth. Tooth at this stage does not have to hurt – then it is a slow and chronic process, but often it is manifested by an strong pain called acute pulpitis. Untreated inflammation of the pulp goes into necrosis and later into pulp gangrene, that is more advanced states of tissue destruction with a more difficult to cure bacterial flora, so the sooner we take the treatment the better for the health of the whole body.
Does root canal pain hurt?
Root canal treatment is always carried out under local anesthesia and is completely painless. After treatment, the tooth is still sensitive for several days.
What if root canal treatment is not possible?
If the tooth is severely damaged and is no longer suitable for root canal treatment, it should be removed and implantological or prosthetic treatment should be considered to make up for the missing tooth. This is a last resort and with today’s methods of treatment, most of the teeth are successfully cured and provide longer life.
What to do when the tooth hurts after root canal treatment?
The first days and even weeks after the root canal treatment, the tooth and its surroundings may be sore and this is a normal reaction. If a tooth that has been treated for a long time is pained, the cause should be determined and re-treatment should be considered or surgical treatment, ie. resection of the apex of the root.
