Root canal treatment
Endodontic treatment – in other words: root canal treatment, it is often the only and last chance to save the tooth. It is a means of saving a tooth that has been damaged by deep decay, breakage, or infection.
It is the process of complete removing from the chamber and root canals infected or dead pulp and placing into the root canal space a biocompatible filling material.
This is a very important to do endodontic treatment well, because without a good canal treatment it is not possible to have any prosthetic work done on a nonvital tooth.
How is a root canal treatment done?
At Curodental most treatments are finished within one single session. The time of the treatment depends on the complexity of the case.
- Before the procedure, we will take X-ray, that way doctor can thoroughly examine your teeth and recommend the best for you treatment plan.
- Local anesthesia is administered via injections to numb the tooth to be treated and the surrounding tissues.
- A small access hole is drilled in the top of the tooth and the infected tooth pulp is removed.
- Once happy with the disinfection process the canal spaces are filled usually a rubber-like material called gutta-percha is used to fill the canal space. Together with adhesive cement called a sealer, the gutta-percha fills the prepared canal space.
- After that further restoration of the crown of the tooth is completed, using crowns or fillings.
To perform root canal treatment successfully we use the latest achievements in dentistry, such as:
Dental microscope enables procedures in magnification and lightening of the treated area. This ensures unmatched precision with fidelity and precision which cannot be achieved with traditional methods.
