Root canal treatment in our clinic
In our dental office we use modern tools for diagnostic (CBCT, endometer) and microscope, to provide our patients with accurate and precise treatment.
Microscope allows us to look inside the root canal, check if there are any obstacles, additional canals and thoroughly fill the canal.
During the procedure, the endodontist removes infected tissues from the pulp chamber and canals in local anesthesia, rinse them with bactericidal solutions with the use of ultrasounds and fills canals with gutta-percha.
Why the endodontics is so important?
Neglecting tooth and leaving it untreated, allows bacteria to progress from root canals to the bone around teeth, destroys it and cause big pain. Destructed teeth, when the treatment is no longer possible, is extracted. Losing a tooth, causes other problems, tipping of teeth, extrusion, shifting, occlusal trauma or even temporomandibular disorders.

On the first visit we discuss the patient his problem, exam tooth and make computer tomography (CBCT) to asses if there is any inflammation in the bone and the shape and amount of canals. On this basis, we can estimated duration and the cost of the treatment.
Next step is preparation of a tooth’s crown in case it is destroyed to much to put on a rubber dam and to separate tooth from the mouth. This prevents bacteria from mouth to get inside the treated tooth and solutions using in treatment not to be swallowed by the patient.
After reaching root canals, doctor removes infected tissues, cleans canals using special tools and rinse it with bactericidal solutions, using ultrasounds.
Prepared canals are filled with warm gutta - percha.
At the end we take an x-ray to make sure that the roots are filled precisely.
