Endodontics colloquially called root canal treatment. For most people, this concept goes deepest into the tooth. In endodontic treatment, infected tissue is removed from the canal and then replaced with plastic material. If the tooth is qualified by the doctor for root canal treatment, it means that the caries bacteria have got to the root of the tooth. They defeated the enamel and dentin and got into the innervated pulp of the tooth, which is connected to the bloodstream of the whole organism. This situation, dangerous for the tooth and negatively affecting the joints and heart, kidneys and other organs, requires immediate treatment.
Root canal treatment is necessary when pulpitis occurs. The reasons for this can be different: deep caries, large fillings, dental injuries.
Modern equipment at our disposal, among others surgical microscope, endodontic scaler and digital radiography enable effective treatment in one visit.
