Endodontics with a microscope
Endodontics deals with diseases of the inner tooth, in particular of the root canal. Many people naturally wince when they hear the term ‘root canal treatment’. Given the pain that was inevitably associated with this up until a few years ago, this is not surprising. Modern dental care however has more gentle and more precise procedures that allow root canal treatment to be considered a totally normal dental appointment. Given that the pain that results from the inflammation is just as unpleasant as before, usually utmost urgency is sought – we will treat you if necessary as a matter of priority as an emergency patient.
The aim of every endodontic treatment is the preservation of the affected tooth. If the pulp (the tooth nerve) is inflamed, the affected tissue must be removed and the root canal must be widened. The bacteria are killed off and the root of the tooth subsequently completely filled. Thanks to local anaesthetic, you barely notice anything even during this procedure. For endodontics, we work with a microscope in order to proceed with utmost accuracy, as the root canal system features numerous small and minuscule branches. In this way, we are able to make sure that only the affected tissue – extracted nonetheless completely – is removed and the healthy tissue is retained. We are more than happy to provide you with more precise information regarding our endodontic treatment methods in a personal consultation.
