Endodontics is the treatment of root canals damaged by infection or inflammation. Most often, dangerous microorganisms enter the root canal system of the tooth due to tooth decay induced damage. In this case, the patient is often accompanied by acute pain and swelling. Do not wait when you experience these symptoms, as the infection can become a threat not only to your teeth, but also to your general health.
Even in the most difficult cases, such as a large outbreak of infection, your tooth can still be saved with the careful work of a doctor endodontist.
A particularly significant area of IROK’s activity is the retreatment of dental root canals. This is an extremely complex treatment procedure that is always trusted by a professional and experienced endodontist in our clinic. Endodontic treatment is not possible without a microscope. This device allows you to see what is not visible to the naked eye: small cavities of the root canal of the tooth, additional ultra-fine dental canals, remnants of old fillings.
Endodontic treatment may be required if:
- Symptoms of previous root canal infection recurred;
- The canals are incompletely and not hermetically sealed;
- A fistula (small abscess) formed near the endodontically treated tooth;
- Not all canals were sealed during the initial treatment.
We remind you, that endodontically treated teeth are at extremely high risk of cracking and breaking.
For this reason, after treating the root canals with a doctor to discuss the possibilities of filling the tooth, it is advisable to choose micro prosthetics instead of conventional fillings. Inlays made of durable and long-lasting composite materials allow to prevent tooth loss, even if there are very few intact tooth structures left after treatment.
Every endodontic treatment is a process that is perfected down to the smallest detail. Entrust your dental root canal treatment to IROK.
