Root canal treatment (endodontics)
No prosthesis is as compatible as your own teeth! We therefore always try to preserve your natural teeth, even if they are diseased right down to the nerve and require extensive treatment. These measures may be laborious, but they help preserve your natural teeth. During root treatment, the diseased and infected nerve of the tooth is removed. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia and is practically pain-free.
Two things are important here: Firstly, all root canals must, if possible, be thoroughly cleaned.
Secondly, a complete and bacteria-proof filling of these canals up to the root tip is the basis for the permanent preservation of the tooth. Due to the complex anatomy of the root canal, a conscientious root treatment first and foremost calls for a lot of time and the right technique. Numerous treatment steps have to be followed.
Root canal revision
Should a root canal treatment not lead to the desired result, i.e. the healing of the inflammable bone defect at the root tip, or should the patient suffer from pain, the root canal treatment can be repeated (revision). The goal of this revision is to free the root canal system from old filling material, cement, and bacteria as well as clean possible additional root canals or other bacterial reservoirs. In most cases, these treatment steps are conducted with the help of our OR microscope.
With the aid of our microscope, we are able to examine and treat difficult root canal conditions. This treatment is mainly necessary in case of additional hidden root canals, broken off root canal instruments, revisions of earlier root canal treatments or perforations and their coverings.
