Endodontic treatment, commonly called a root canal treatment, is performed in a specialist dentist surgery in the case of an intractable inflammation of the tooth nerve. During the endodontic treatment, the infected nerve and bacteria are removed from the root canal. Proper chemical and mechanical treatment allows to prepare and clean the dental canals very thoroughly.
Effectiveness of the endodontic therapy is high provided that the treatment has been performed thoroughly and specialist procedures have been used. In difficult cases, the root canal therapy is combined with dental surgery (e.g. root apex resection). Therefore, it is so important that the procedure be performed by an experienced dentist. At ODENT Centre, you will find the best dentists in Warsaw, specialising in the root canal treatment.
Endodontic therapy is a time-consuming treatment, requiring high skills of the operator, as well as a vast and expensive armamentarium. At our Centre, we use an endodontic microscope with a camera, which significantly increases precision of the treatment. The microscope is also used to remove old fillings or broken pieces of endodontic tools from root canals.
During the endodontic treatment it is very important to estimate the exact length of the root canal. At ODENT Centre, we do that with the use of an endometer, a device allowing for an electronic measurement of the root canal length.
The second condition essential for the success of the endodontic treatment is a very thorough filling of the root canals, both the main ones as well as the lateral canals, often invisible or with difficult access.
