Root canal treatment (RTC) allows saving a tooth when the pulp is injured, infected or inflamed. Endodontics is one of the fastest developing dental specialties, particularly appreciated by patients who want to keep their natural teeth as long as possible.
During primary endodontic treatment infected pulp (soft tissue inside the pulp chamber and root canals) is removed from the inside of the tooth by means of mechanical and chemical cleansing methods. At the end of each endodontic therapy, a filling material is placed in the canals to prevent contamination of the tooth with bacteria.
If the first RTC was not fully successful, endodontic retreatment must be performed - it starts with the removal of all infected canal filling material from the tooth, followed by shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the pulp chamber and root canals. Usually, secondary endodontic treatment is required if narrow or curved canals were not detected and properly treated during the initial procedure or filling material resorbed from the canals after years. That is why in Dentalux clinics we offer primary and secondary RTC under the control of dental microscope, which allows the doctor to detect all additional root canals and treat them properly. Using a combination of appropriate techniques and state-of-the-art equipment and materials makes it possible to achieve the primary endodontic goal that has not changed over the years, i.e. a tight filling and closure of the root canal system to prevent recontamination and avoid further complications like pain or cyst formation in the surrounding tissues.
The professional qualifications and continuously improved skills of our endodontic specialists using advanced techniques and technologies allow for a tooth (that years ago would be removed) to remain comfortable in the mouth for years to come. With the support of modern diagnostic and therapeutic equipment including dental microscopes, digital radiovisiography, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), endometer, and other professional instruments for cleansing and filling the root canals system, the success rates of endodontic treatment performed in Dentalux is close to 100 percent.
