Root Canal Therapy

Endodontics is a dental specialty concerned with the therapy of root canals, including the diagnostics, prevention and treatment of the dental pulp problems. Dental pulp is made of soft tissue inside the pulp chamber filled with thin fiber and nerves. It is an important factor in a tooth’s development and vitality. The most common cause of toothache is actually the acute infection of the pulp known as caries.

Symptoms of a caries infection:
Sensitivity to hot or cold
Discomforting pain
Face swelling

However, the inflammatory reaction does not always have such intensive and obvious symptoms. A chronic process – dental granuloma – which develops on the root tip, can still be developing in the tooth. Since its symptoms are not prominent, it can be unnoticed for quite some time. The best way to prevent caries is to be very cautious when it comes to oral hygiene, and to have it diagnosed on time to prevent it from spreading.

Tip: In case you have or suspect to have any of the above mentioned symptoms of a caries or granuloma, do not delay your visit to the dentist.


What does the endodontic therapy look like?

After we have had the dental X-ray, we can start the endodontic therapy of the tooth pulp in stages:
Removing the inflamed tooth pulp
Cleaning and expanding root canals
Sealing the root canals
Filling or covering the root canals using a crown

At B.DENT we use RECIPROC GOLD machine endodontics system – the most precise and efficient system used for root canal treatment. Machine endodontics, as the most modern dental technology, improves the success rate of the root canal therapy and shortens the time of the therapy.

Note: When performing the endodontic therapy, we use local anesthetics. The treatment is painless, and sometimes it requires more than one visit to the dentist, depending on the condition of the tooth.
