It’s the branch of dentistry concerning the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of dental pulp and tissues surrounding the root tips.
Root canal treatment is needed when dental X-rays show that the pulp has been damaged by a bacterial infection, or a tooth is dead because of a very deep cavity or trauma.
In this case, a standard dental filling doesn’t solve the problem, because the root canal is without circulation and the infection can spread to the jaw where it can cause even life-threatening complications.
Often, it’s a root canal procedure that makes it possible to save the tooth that should otherwise be removed.
The high-tech microscopes used in our clinic enable a very precise and high-quality treatment procedure, because more than 10 times magnification helps to see important details that are otherwise invisible to the eye, and to perform even the most complex root canal treatment procedures.
