Endodontics is a treatment of root canal and it is very important for future of a tooth. Such treatment is recommended where decay is complicated and is necessary where there was an inflammation in the tooth or the pulp becomes deceased or injured by hitting. Endodontics is a key method to save a dead tooth in the oral cavity without limitation of its function.
The treatment consists in a thorough cleaning of root canals, removal of the dead tissue and hermetic filling of those canals.
Long-term success of endodontic treatment can be ensured if:
- the root canal is deprived of all disturbing material
- the root is sterilized chemically, by ozone or laser
- the root is three-dimensionally hermetically filled with material that ensures hardness and tightness along all its length
- the tooth is after filling prothetically treated (by a crown etc.)
A tooth treated in this way can serve the patient for the rest of their life.
Canadian Medical Care is equipped by a modern endodontic devices that make the treatment of canals easier, faster and bring new quality into this speciality. The procedure is performed in local anaesthesy, highly exact measurement of canal length is made by apex locator and the analysis of digital RVG image.
Nickel-titanium root tools are flexible, well copy shape and direction of the canal and they often do it better than manual tools. They also make all the treatment quicker which is appreciated by patients.
The result of canal processing can be even strengthened by disinfection by ozone or by laser in more serious cases.
After cleaning it is necessary to fill the canal and close hermetically so no bacteria can invade. In Canadian Medical Care we use the method called Thermafil which is a modern and clinically tested technique to fill root canals.
