Endodontics is the specialty of dentistry that is responsible for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp (nerve). Also known as root canal, it is a fairly common procedure that can save your tooth from possible extraction and is carried out especially when the nerve and vessels inside the tooth are injured or infected.
The treatment is performed under local anesthesia so the patient does not feel any pain.
After isolating the tooth and preparing the area of intervention, the affected tooth area, the tooth and the nerve conduct are cleaned using last generation instruments (apices locators, rotary instruments, ultrasonic, medical loupes and computed radiography).
Once the tooth is cleaned, it is hermetically sealed.
We use computerized digital radiovisiography for convenience of your endodontic treatment.
We use the magnifying glass EyeMag Pro from Carl Zeiss to get a better diagnosis and give better treatments to our patients.
