Endodontics

Endodontics is a treatment or retreatment of root canals. Such treatment may be necessary if inflammation occurs in the root canal of the tooth causing acute pain, tooth sensitivity and other unpleasant sensations. Endodontic treatment destroys microorganisms that cause root canal inflammation and ensures that the tissue around the tooth is protected from inflammation. It is a process that requires extraordinary diligence and particularity. Delayed treatment of infected canals poses a threat of various complications and, ultimately, even tooth loss.

If you experience these symptoms, it may be a sign that you need endodontic treatment:

  • Tooth sensitivity when using cold or hot foods
  • Acute, tooth pain;
  • Darkened tooth enamel color;
  • Gum swelling

 

Dental root canal treatment may also be required in the case of previously poor quality endodontic treatment. The canals with inflammation are re-cleaned by removing defective or outdated fillers, disinfected and sealed tightly during repeated endodontic treatment

VOC doctors use modern and reliable equipment during endodontic treatment, as well as retreatment, to ensure accurate exactitude and treatment effectiveness. Endodontic treatment in our Center is unimaginable without a microscope, which allows the doctor to clearly see what is not visible to the naked eye, to carefully remove the focus of infection or to correct the mistakes made during the previous treatment.

The main stages of endodontic treatment are:

  • X-ray photo and diagnostics;
  • Removal of infected and inflammatory tissue from root canal;
  • Precise and hermetic sealing of the canals to prevent the recurrence of inflammation.
