Endodontics remains a very important pillar in dentistry. It studies and treats the pathology of the dental pulp.
The dental pulp (nerve) is the “heart” of the tooth, the living tissue that vascularizes (nourishes) and innervates the entire dental structure.
Pulp degradation can occur for various reasons:
– untreated caries that evolve into the dental pulp / when treating it the pulp is exposed
– pariapical pathology that infects the dental pulp
– mechanical / thermal traumas on the tooth
– secondary caries (developed following an incorrect treatment) that evolve towards the dental pulp
- Unlike other branches of dentistry, in endodontics the visibility was very poor because the pulp of the tooth is inside the root, which is in turn anchored in the maxillary bone.
Low visibility and thus the impossibility of identifying secondary root canals – or other individual morpho-structural peculiarities – resulted in compromising the success of the endodontic treatments long-term.
Today, modern dentistry helps practitioners with innovative technologies:
– endodontic microscope: enlarges the image up to 20 times
– devices that automatically locate the apex: for accurate measurement of root length
– micromotors with rotating needles: for the correct and fast cleaning and widening of the root canals
– ultrasound device for removing softened dentin and other infected tissue
– systems with liquid gutta-percha and endodontic capacitors: for qualitative filling of the
Diadent Clinic is equipped with all these technologies to ensure the highest success rate of endodontic treatments and to fulfill the most important goal: saving the tooth.
At our clinic, all endodontic interventions are performed under the control of LEICA electronic dental microscopes. Magnification ensures superior accuracy and allows solving some cases of increased difficulty. Any treatment is normally completed in a single session, which varies temporally between 40 minutes and 2 hours.
The use of the endodontic microscope ensures:
– treatment of maximum precision and credibility;
– preserving the health of the tooth for much longer periods;
– identification of additional root canals;
– identification and treatment of calcified canals;
– restoration of incorrect canal treatments;
– identification and sealing of root perforations;
– detection of root fractures
– amazing aesthetic results
