Endodontics

Endodontics represents the root canal treatment, with the most secure methods, provided by a qualified doctor using the latest tools and magnification systems.

 

Endodontics deals with root canal therapy and is the basis of dentistry – tooth life depends primarily on the correct application of this treatment. Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or dies.

 

If not treated, the infection spreads to the bone and surrounding tissues. The specialist endodontist removes the inflamed or infected tissues, mechanically and chemically clean the tooth canal system, fill and seal the endodontic space.

 

 

  • Endodontic retreatment is necessary if the tooth treated initially is forming infections on the canals for various reasons:
  • Curved or very narrow canals that could not be treated initially
  • Intricate canal system anatomy could not be fully detected during initial treatment
  • Final restoration delays that lead to re-infection of the tooth root canal (after completion of endodontic treatment)
  • Failure of the body’s immune system in the fight with severe  infection
  • Carious lesion exposing the canal system to bacteria
  • A large or broken crown, a broken filling
