Endodontics

Endodontics deals with diseases of the contents of the root canal, that is, dental pulp. Dental pulp can get infected for various reasons, one of which is definitely tooth decay. When bacteria and their toxins get into the tooth chamber an inflammation of the dental pulp tissue called pulpitis occurs.

Because of the effects of bacteria and their toxins the tooth is cut off from its blood supply and its root starts to rot, and that’s when gangrene sets in. Bacteria can also enter the jaw bone through the top of the tooth’s root (apex), the consequence of which is the process at the top of the root.

Trauma, such as a blow, for example, can lead to the cessation of the flow of nutritious materials to the dental pulp (the contents of the root canal), after which it starts to slowly decay. This usually remains unnoticed, so these cysts are first sighted either when they reach significant proportions or on a routine X-ray scan. If some infectious agents penetrate inside these cysts, the patient could get gangrene.

Surgery

When toxins from bacteria break through the tip of the root and in the jaw bone a situation arises. Conservative, non-surgical solution to these processes is possible by inserting medicine through the root canal into the dental bone, over the top of the root. However, there are situations where therapy such as this one cannot yield results so, after an endodontics exam, the patient needs to be subjected to a small oral surgical intervention which consists of surgically removing the top of the root and the surrounding bone, with the aim of removing the irregularities.

VDW Reciproc

Treating the root canal, ie. pulling out the nerve is a procedure that often demands patience and sitting in the chair for a long time. This is why we’ve gone out of our way to ensure only the fastest and the most comfortable treatment without sacrificing the quality.
When treating the root canal, it is necessary to expand the tooth to a certain point and then fill it up precisely and completely to that point.
Reciproc endo motor with a built in apex locator enables us to expand and process the root canal in less that 10 minutes by using only a single mechanical spacer and in just a few passes. Its built in apex locator signalises when we’ve reached the necessary length to fill the canal and stops the mechanical expander.

Apex locator

Treating the root canal, or taking out the nerv, demands the highest precision. The apex locator helps the dentist to determine the location of the tip of the root. The canal must be processed over its entire length up to its tip. On the locators display, the dentist can clearly see how far from the “right location” the are.
A badly processed, under or over-filled teeth can cause issues later on.
